Each year, one of my Pesach jobs is to clean the family car. I must admit, I sorta enjoy it, especially when the weather is nice. Spring is in the air, usually its sunny but cool, and I get to turn a somewhat trashed up car to a sparkling new & clean one.
Each year, though, it gets a bit tough. The fact that I live in a close knit Frum community, which is sorta to more yeshivish now then when I grew up, just makes things more complicated. Say, for example, that I used to blast my radio whilst cleaning, now I can no longer do that. Actually-I will no longer do that in respect of the yeshivish families/kids watching.
Another case in point-whilst I'm literally bending over to reach into the nooks and crannies, and trying to stuff a vacuum into tiny creases of the car seats, my shirt may rise a bit-so I wear a hoodie (sweatshirt) but that doesn't always keep things so tznius.
Oh, and what about positioning? It's hard to look all tznius, when you are on your hands/knees/stretching, leaning, doing manual labour, you know what I'm saying? And no, doing this in the evening, when it's dark is not an option.
For the non-Jews, a car-wash (fundraiser) is usually a 'prust' thing. You see women in bikinis jumping up and down, with sponges, etc. I find it disgusting, personally. It's more like they're advertising themselves then the actual car wash.
For me, the smalltown frum gal, it's just another Pesach cleaning job. So yes, I spent my day make-up free, with my hair in a pulled up smashed (somewhat) bun, with my hoodie. Then I realized, being 'shidduch age' and the sort, that I should atleast try and look presentable. So I topped it with fashion boots instead of rainboots or crocs. I think I pulled it off.
Well, atleast the car is clean :)
