Is it allowed to wash one's car during the 9 days?

Or is it like clothing, since it is also for show and it surrounds you?

  • Where is washing a non-porous object ever called כיבוס? – Double AA Jul 19 '18 at 16:53
  • @DoubleAA i do not claim it is , so a car will be like leather clothing (which i do not know what the law is) – hazoriz Jul 19 '18 at 16:54

This article says that one may wash his car and polish silver, but not shampoo the rug. It does not give a reason. Then, again, I would assume regarding Nine Days that if something is not specifically mentioned as being forbidden, then it's permitted. Kudos to Alex for the M.Y. link.
