I know I'm not supposed to wash my car in direct sunshine, but my driveway is always in the sun. I live in a cool climate (Colorado) - Is it OK to wash when the car feels cool to the touch, even if it is in the sun?

If at all possible, you should avoid sunlight, but it isn't nessasary if you move fast enough to wash the car.

The reason you are supposed to avoid sunlight is because it water spots really fast in the sun as compared with the shade.

Work on the shady side of the car to start and make sure that you keep the car wet, at all case yo don't know wash the rims and wells to start they take a bit longer and don't spot that much, it at all...
