I am the only one who washes my car. With one exception, I had it detailed once in Dallas. Awesome shop, but expensive. I have more time than money.

I just use the pressure wand to clean all of the sand and crap out of the brush before I use it.

May work well on the underside of a boat, but that brush will put swirls in the clear coat on your car.

One thing I don't like about those stupid car wash places is that you have to move the car out of the stall after you wash it. That's enough distance to get the tires filled with crud again and possibly kick stuff back on the lower body paint.

I'm glad I have a driveway to wash my car on. I can take my sweet old time and I can super detail the wheels/tires and wheel wells.

The wife loves to help wash the Camaro. If its a nice warm sunny day I get a wonderful treat , the itty bitty bikini on while she helps me wash it.
