    We have these shammies that are synthetic. They are awesome. You can put them back into their containers and they're guaranteed not to mildew. Been using the same ones for over 15 years.
    That is not bad at all; forget some of you have giant vehicles that are harder to wash.

    I just have trouble trusting most people touching my car. I don't even let people do my oil changes as had idiots even have mess that up.


    What is the name of this shammie? Been using the old school leather ones so I am interested in a upgrade.


    Yeah sorry for the thread jack! Hopefully it at least keeps ad at the top.

    To help you out I did see your car wash has excellent ratings on Yelp

    It's always a happy day when I find a car wash that my truck can fit through.

    Washing is the only time someone else touches any of my vehicles. Even Kim changes her own oil.

I've asked the facility to not do that and they say no problem, but it only lasts once and they're back to soaking everything. I would love to get my interior done, but perhaps I'm just anal. Or, maybe it's just because my speakers are really expensive.
    Funny you say this because I completely agree... Drove from DC to Charleston yesterday and after the winter in DC, the dog, and the drive, it was time to get the interior done. Found a nice looking car wash, had them do the interior detail. They ran longer than the estimated time they told me, which any other day wouldn't have mattered but I had an appt to get to. So, I went out and asked how much longer. The guy had just wrapped up the windows and told me he was preparing to apply the "protectant". Stopped him there and said he had done enough. I hate getting greasy overspray all over the place. Saved him the time and the trouble, saved me the hassle of recleaning it.




    OK, back to your regularly scheduled program.


    Do not put off living the life you dream of. Next year may never come. If we are always waiting for something to change...
    Retirement, the kids to leave home, the weather or the economy, that's not living. That's waiting!
    Waiting will only leaves us with unrealized dreams and empty wishes.

    for $40/mth ($1.33 a day) you could come everyday of the month and receive a full service inside cleaning and outside car wash that takes about 15 min on average. Our goal is to keep your car clean everyday. We have some customers that buy a new car and get it washed every single day with us until they sell it.

    I guarantee that we are the best full service car wash in the state.

    I rarely think of motorcycles without a little yearning. They are about moving, and humans, I think, yearn to move – it’s in our cells, in our desires. We quiet our babies with cyclic movement, and we quiet ourselves by going.

    I think I have the same one he's talking about Nate I'll snap a pic (and get a name if there still is one) the next time I think of it.

    In fact I bought it at the auto parts place off Tower next to K&D's house when I lived in that neck of the woods 3 years ago, mine is red and advertises that you can put it away wet or dry (I usually wring it a bit but it's always moist, I pull it out 2-3 weeks later and it still doesn't smell and is usually still a bit moist) and the container it comes in is nice in that they leave extra room and don't expect you to get it to tiny standards to put away.
