Guide to Keeping Your Car Clean during High Pollen Counts



Pollen on Car

If you’re dealing with a high pollen count and your car is becoming yellow or green from it, there are some easy steps you can take to clean the pollen off your car:

  1. Regular Washing: It’s a good idea to wash your car regularly if it’s pollen season and you have your car outside. This will keep the pollen from building up and damaging your car’s paint.
  2. Use a Car Cover: If you don’t use your car very often, or if you have a high-quality cover, this can be a good way to keep pollen off your car.
  3. Choose the Right Time: In general, the best time to wash your car is in the early morning or late evening. Washing your car at these times can prevent the water from evaporating too quickly, which can leave spots.
  4. Start with a Rinse: Before you start washing your car, rinse it off to get rid of any loose pollen or dirt.
  5. Use a Car Wash Solution: A specially formulated car wash solution will be gentle on your car’s paint and effective at removing pollen. Avoid using dish soap, as it can strip away the protective layer of wax on your car’s paint.
  6. Use a Soft Sponge or Cloth: To avoid scratching your car’s paint, use a soft sponge or cloth.
  7. Rinse Thoroughly: After you’ve washed your car, rinse it off thoroughly to remove any soap or pollen residue.
  8. Dry Your Car Properly: After rinsing, it’s important to dry your car properly to avoid water spots. You can use a microfiber cloth or a squeegee for this purpose.
  9. Wax Your Car: Once your car is clean, consider applying a layer of wax. This can help to protect your car’s paint from pollen and other debris.
  10. Cleaning the Interior: Don’t forget to clean the inside of your car as well, as pollen can easily get inside. Vacuum the seats and floor mats, and wipe down the dashboard and other surfaces with a damp cloth.


Remember, if pollen is a consistent problem, consider parking your car in a garage or under a carport if possible. Regularly cleaning your car will help maintain the paint and overall appearance of your vehicle.
