Tips You should actually vacuum your car first before washing. Otherwise if you try to vacuum a wet car, the vacuum hose will get wet from the car’s gutters and door channels. A real quick and easy way to mess up the inside of your car is with dirty water. Use the power wash cycle to hit inside your wheel bays and up underneath your vehicle. Most cars will also tolerate an engine wash. Avoid the higher pressure spray in the engine bay. You may not get to baby your car during high traffic times. So, feel free to avoid congestion in the first place and come back at another time. Bring your own quarters or good dollar bills. Machines may not read your highly used bills. If the machine does not say how many minutes you get for your money, then start small. Put in the first set of quarters and see how far you get. Time that first round so you know how fast you have to go for the second round of quarters. Bring wheel cleaner and spray down your wheels to loosen brake dust before entering the bay. While running the initial high-pressure soap stage, blast the remaining brake dust loose. In making change, do not accidentally drop in the US dollar coins. Unless the machine says it takes dollar coins, you will only get a quarter’s worth of change back. Some car washes also have rug shampoo services. Consider this if you have a stain or spilled foods inside. Self-service car washes don’t do as good of a job of cleaning the surface of your car as can be achieved by washing your car by hand, unless you take your time and use both the pre-soak AND the foam brush cycles. To prove it run your finger over your car “post-wash.” Be considerate, however, as most self-service car washes don’t permit people to hand wash while others are waiting. Some car washes require a minimum initial deposit (e.g. $0.75) but warn you when you are nearing the end of your time and allow you to add single quarters to get incrementally more time. This is handy when you are almost done and don’t need all the time you would get from another initial deposit. Despite the spot-free rinse, sometimes spots will be left on the car if the car is not dried properly. Bring a clean microfiber towel (or just a retired bath towel) to remove leftover water droplets which may otherwise leave spots on your car.

Bill owns a company that manufactures and installs car wash systems. Magic Wand Car Wash Systems just in case you want to buy one. Bill’s company installed a car wash system in Frederick, Md. for a gentleman. Now understand that these are a complete system including the money changer and money taking machines. The problem started when the new owner complained to Bill that he was losing significant amounts of money form his coin machines each week. He went as far as to accuse Bill’s employees of having a key to the boxes and ripping him off. Bill just couldn’t believe that his people would do that. So they setup a trap for the thief. Well they caught the thief in the act! Scroll down to see the thief. The bird had to go down in the machine and back up to get to the money! That’s three quarters he has in his mouth! Another amazing thing Bill told us is that it was not one bird there were several working together. Once they identified the thief, they found over $4000 in quarters on the roof of the car wash and more under a nearby tree.

Warnings Pay attention to closing signs. Lights may go out and it’s hard to wash in the dark. Some electric equipment may also be shut off. If you have carpeted floor mats don’t use the pressure washer on them. They will take a large amount of time to dry. Be aware of rust/paint damage, as high pressure can lift paint, magnetic signs and bumper stickers from your car. Washing during the Winter requires quite a bit of constitution, especially if it is bitter-cold outside. The water you’re spraying on the car will begin to freeze almost immediately after hitting the car, creating a thick crust of ice that may need to be scraped off after washing is complete. If you’re wearing gloves to protect your hands from the cold be sure to keep your gloves dry, and if you’re handling the wand bare-handed beware freezing water on your exposed skin (it will hurt, especially once you start warming your hands up after the wash.) Check which way any wind is blowing and try to avoid standing downwind from the spray. Be careful and stand back when spraying your car with the high-pressure washer. Try to avoid applying direct pressure (if you accidentally spray your own foot, you’ll understand). It’s best keep a reasonable distance from your car. Surprisingly, tires are also vulnerable as the focused, oscillating pressure can damage the cords/belts in the sidewalls, causing all sorts of problems. So take care around your wheels. Some car washes have many extra options such as tire or engine cleaners. Use these with care and only as directed; they may be harmful to the paint on your car. The brush wand may have tiny rocks in it from the previous user. Before taking it to your car let the water run through it and jiggle/knock/scrub/bump the wand over a grate or into a bucket to clear it. Don’t pound it on the ground since that might lodge the rocks deeper into the bristles. Pay attention to scrawled notes that tell you a machine is out of order. Also pay attention to whether or not the service light of a machine is on or off. Otherwise, you may lose your coins.
