Do any of you get this done on a regular basis?

I have a S-Max that is used solely for the purpose of childminding and i am finding that it is getting really dirty inside - mud from forest, sand from beach etc and to be honest i cant find the time to clean it reguarly (never liked cleaning cars!!) so was thinking about getting someone in to clean it each month - have been offered a service of cleaning inside and out for £25 per month if i take a 12 month contract with the company.

Can this be put against my tax?

Am i being lazy?

I think if you can prove that the vehicle is solely being used for minding that you can put the costs through the books. If in doubt just give the tax office a call they are normally very helpful

Don't see why you cant do it.

I never have time to clean my car and its going to be a H&S issue soon:blush:

If you can afford it then why not?? I don't know how much this costs normally but I hate cleaning my car :)
