They don't, like anything, you have to maintain things to make them last.
One day during a group conversation with a old firefighter friend of mine, we were giving him a hard time about how clean the fire trucks were even in the winter, someone asked him, "why clean them up so much, they're just going to get dirty again?" his quick and witty reply was "Why wipe your a$$ when you take a sh$t, it's just going to get dirty again?... Except it sure keeps the sores away"
