Study: Women less likely to keep cars clean

A British study indicates that women are marginally less likely to regularly wash their cars than men are.

A British study, the results of which were released this morning, suggests that more than half of all women go at least six months between washing their cars.

The study, conducted by Autoquake, found that about 56 percent of the United Kingdom women surveyed let their cars go unwashed for more than six months. By comparison, 44 percent of the men surveyed were willing to go that long between washings.

The survey of over 1,000 U.K. drivers found that just 34 percent of all drivers washed their cars inside and out every six months, while only 13 percent do a full inside and outside wash once a year. On the bright side, just 4 percent of those surveyed claim that they never wash their vehicles. Women - at 5 percent - were slightly more likely to never wash their cars than men - at 3 percent.
