Question Will it damage the paint?

They are currently fixing the street i live on. So my car is always dirty now. There is dirt flying everywhere. Its pretty useless to wash the car since it only lasts untill i get back home. I was wondering if all the dirt and dust will harm the car if i just leave it there. I guess i could at least spray it off with water but it really does not help much either. Should i just leave it alone?

no leaving it alone wont do any good because the sun will bake on the debris and stuff and that will begin to etch into the paint. Washing it off wont do any good either since the water spots will begin to etch into the paint as well. Like it or not the best thing is to wash it and there are products that allow you to clean off a car that has minial dust and dirt on it. Megiuars Quick detailer for one

Micro Fiber and Quick Detailer ow3nz me, many a time after a wash and wax the birds start aiming and those two things save so much time, paint and worry

How long are you going to leave and when was the last time you waxed?
