    I doubt if there is still such a thing as pure rain water, given that particulates from emissions all over the globe are already blanketing the atmosphere which rain passes through.

    IMO, it's totally inconvenient...
    - you have to wait for the rainy seasons to come to get "rain water"
    - you should also have a lot of water containers if you'll actually do this as well as a big space in your garage
    - and lastly since it's already the rainy season...i dont think you'll be bothering yourself to clean your car that often....

    just my 2-cents

    this is exactly what i'm thinking. the thread starter may be right, but who has time to gather enough rain water to properly wash a car? or is he saying that you should simply leave the car outside when it rains and then wipe it off? :hihihi:

    Apply some shampoo first before it rains, and let the sun do the drying

    It doesn't really matter where you get the rainwater. Evaporated water doesn't fall as rain in the same place because of this thing called "wind".

    No ways. Rainwater is distilled thus vulnerable to acids.

    i've tried it myself lots of times. sa experience ko lang compared to tapwater it won't give you waterspots. di kasi nahahalata waterspots sa tapwater kasi pinupunasan agad :D Pero try mo sya matuyo normally dami spots. Lalo na sa akin, black ang car color.

    Kaya lang who would wait for the rain to pour first bago maglinis ng car nya? :D

    I think that's the idea. When it rains, get exposed while washing you car. Double purpose ika nga. P.S. Iwasan mo lang pawisan, baka magkasakit ka.
