2. Clean the Hood/Bonnet
Bonnet is another place where dust and smoke stay. Due to engine working and dust in the air, you can see so much blackish dust on the engine and its surroundings. You can wash this area using soapy water as normal water cannot clean it. Throw water on this area if you have water bucket and mug. Use the water pump also. Make sure there are no legal restrictions on open car washing where you are living.

The below part of the car is always prone to mud and dust. If raining reason then the things are worse. Dust and dirt eat metal or the body of the car with a reaction to environmental gases. That’s why we see rust on metal parts of vehicles. Wash this area using tap water with pressure or throw water with a mug.
