Dew, & Cleaning Our Nissan LEAF

January 13th, 2016 by  

Not particular to the Nissan LEAF I am presently driving, is the method with which I keep an EV or any other vehicle clean — on the outside. I find it is an efficient method to use the dew (0r rain) to clean the car. Consider that some people and animals of the desert drink the dew off a leaf or a petal to hydrate in the morning. There is most often dew on my EV in the early morning, so I take a couple of rags and wash the EV without using water from the hose — using the plentiful dew on our EV instead.

Motivated by the way I am to make the most of the natural resources we have, I take care to use them sparingly. Prompted also by the news of water shortages — and innovative solutions to water scarcity, including ones involving dew — I am trying to do my part.

Do any of you clean your cars with dew? Thinking about it now?
