Default Is It Bad To Wash My Car And Not Dry It After A Car Wash When Its Raining?

Hey guys, I was wondering..is it bad if I don't dry my car after completely washing it when it's raining? It's raining out today and my car is extremely dirty and I want to wash it, normally I would dry it, but with this cold weather it would take ages to dry and it's gonna get wet anyways.

If it's raining, why are you washing it in the first place?

because my car is full of dirt, I'm going to end up with a muddy car because of the rain, I rather have the rain land on y clean car so It doesn't look like I went off roading when the rain stops, and I park my car outside of my house so it's worse

Well, to answer the question - no, it won't hurt to not dry the car after washing it.

My car stays garaged most of the time now, back to garage queen but when I did drive it as a daily, if it was dirty and the weather was bad, it stayed dirty. No point in spending money to wash it when all the cars in front of me will throw that dirty water all over it again.

To answer your question though, why dry it? It will get wet again.

Is this a trick question?

Should I dry off before jumping in the pool?

I was gonna say what's the point but I also have a comment! I guess it depends on how hard it's raining and whether you'll be driving it or not. But of you use reg hose water which is really hard and it's not raining hard or is just sitting, you could get water spots which are a PITA! Just sayin'...

I NEVER use a hose after a bad incident, I always take it to a self wash, $5 to soap,power wash, and rinse doesn't hurt
