The fluctuating weather has prompted some residents to wash their vehicles multiple times, leading to mounting costs. Abdel Rahman, a Sudani expatriate residing in Al Nahda, Sharjah, shared his frustration after finding his car dirty again soon after each wash. He recounted washing his car three times in just three days, resulting in expenses exceeding Dh120.

Similarly, Shaver Khan, a sales executive at Dubai Mall, faced challenges with the unexpected drizzle. Khan, a resident of Mamzar in Dubai, typically parks his car outside and has resorted to daily car washes at Dubai Mall parking, amounting to Dh80 over four days. The erratic weather has driven car wash businesses into overdrive as residents strive to maintain their vehicles' cleanliness. Iftekhar Alam, manager at Wassel Auto Wash in Dubai's Industrial Area, reported a significant increase in customers, with daily car washes doubling from the usual 40 to approximately 75.

At ADNOC car wash on Al Ittihad Road in Sharjah, employees observed long queues during peak hours, with both automatic and manual wash bays in high demand. The sudden weather pattern has underscored the importance of regular car maintenance for residents in the region. Despite the inconvenience and added expenses, many individuals are prioritizing the upkeep of their vehicles to preserve their appearance and functionality in the face of unpredictable weather conditions.

The unexpected drizzle has highlighted the resilience of residents in Dubai and Sharjah, who are adapting to the changing weather patterns and ensuring their vehicles remain clean and presentable amidst the challenges. As the weather continues to fluctuate, residents are expected to remain vigilant and proactive in maintaining their vehicles to mitigate the impact of sudden weather changes on their daily lives and finances.
