    Actually washing in the rain is not a bad thing. Rain water is much softer and doesn't leave nasty stains.
    I used to wash the car in the rain, but lately the rain has been a bit much and................

    there's only so much washing you can do

    Rain is not always soft
    A week ago we were treated to lots of rain containing sand from the Sahara desert
    Left cars covered with a film of dust. Not common in this area, South Wales, but caused by freak weather conditions

    That's when you don't wash in the rain and rinse it off with a hose-pipe
