Washing a car with Vinegar

Since Vinegar is safe for ceramic tint and is a powerful cleaner would it be a good idea to use to wash a car? I been wondering this for a long time. Vinegar is cheaper too than car soap

Man, you would have the nastiest smelling car around, and if any "accidentally" went into your A/C vents by the windshield, you're going to be smelling for a while....

Plus u can buy a Gallon jug of car wash for what? 5-6 bucks, and that should last you a LONG time, considering you're only supposed to use a few ounces each wash....

Vinegar does have its place in caring for your car. It does a good job at removing deposits which settle to form water spots. A small amount of vinegar on a MF towel can sometimes remove stubborn water spots from the paint and glass. I would suggest reapplying wax afterwards though since it will remove any protection that you may have on the paint.

Soooo you see you are not totally off the wall with that question

I had some nasty water spots a few months back, and I had to use vinegar with water 2:1 to get them out. But I washed and waxed it right after because of the smell.

Except the OP would be doing just as good if he uses Sunlight or Tide soap to wash his car . NO LSP on a G35 is a site I would not like to see..

If you are cheap, go with Meguiars Gold Class in bulk or concentrated soap from Chemical Guys that will last you a good while. Their citrus wash is great, relatively inexpensive in bulk and eco friendly.

Are you actually serious with this question? Why would you want to wash your car with vinegar? What is the goal with doing this? Any paint protection you have applied (if any at all) will be stripped with each wash. I've heard of people being cheap, but I'd say this takes the cake.

Dude, vinegar can be used for very specific purposes (diluted, to remove waterspots) but to wash the entire car??? Car wash if fairly inexpensive (go to target, walmart, napa), I hope that you're not being serious...
