Car Washing Tips at Home

Car Going Through CarwashIt's easy to help the environment when you wash your car. Using a commercial car wash is best, because the soapy, dirty water comes to the wastewater treatment plant.

If you wash your car at home, just remember these two simple tips:

  • Always dump and rinse your wash bucket into the sink (never the storm drain).
  • Use a spray nozzle on your hose that shuts the water off while you're scrubbing.
