If you wash your car at home or at a charity car wash, be sure you understand some of the pitfalls.
- Be sure an environmentally safe washing solution is used that is specifically made for washing cars, i.e. not a dish detergent.
- Realize that the washing material being used, be it a mitt, sponge or towel, should be rinsed thoroughly so as to get out any grit that could possible scratch the finish of you car.
- Understand that all the water and soap used for outside washing goes directly into the sewer system.
- USA Today did a study that shows the average car wash at home uses 120 gallons of water. At Johnny’s we use under 25.
