    is this allowed or you probably should get the car-wash owners permission first? not a everyday thing but just now and then.

    That is how I started out back in 1992, no one knew it wasn't my car I was cleaning. Never used the same one and only did it for a few months until I heard about QEW (original rinseless wash).

    yea.. it wont be a everyday thing or anything.. just maybe a few times a month.

    what about the really dirty cars that looks like it ran through the jungle?

    ONR is the new hotness. Leaves the paint slicker and with a higher gloss than QEW. Works better on glass too. :)

    do you mean peddling your business to the car wash customers or doing a customers car there? cause i've taken a few cars to a wash to do them. never approached anyone there to do it though.

    All over.
    I don't give a damn. Plus I don't have a choice anyway because of the stupid water ban here. I have to wash somewhere. I hate it though because their water is always filthy and I'm swirling my own paint now too. :(
