Dollars and Cents
Are you really saving money by washing your car or truck on your own? What is your time opportunity cost. Basically is it worth your time or you could make more by doing something else? When you wash your auto at home, you have to pay for the hose, brushes, soap, sponges, and microfiber cloth and wax. Your water bill may increase slightly, depending on how much water you use to rinse your car. The automated car wash does not make mistakes and they do not get tired and they never forget a step and you are never wet or tired when you leave.
Washing your car in the driveway with the hose is damaging to the environment. All the grease, detergent, oils, and chemicals that run off your car end up in the local water supply causing pollution. Most commercial car washes use 60 percent less water for the entire process than a homeowner uses just to rinse the car. Among the many impacts of motor vehicles on our environment, car washing has been noted by water quality experts as a serious contributor to water pollution.
