    Hand Car Wash near the Hotel

    Once I arrive, my MM's going to look like I drove it 900 miles and I want to get it cleaned up. Any hand car washes near the hotel? Or, if its not too much trouble, can you post up all the hand car washes in the area? Can't be more than 4 or 5.

    Great info - thanks.

    Even if all we can find is one of those things with the overhead wand that takes a bunch o'quarters, that'll do.

    Using Google earth I could not see where any of those listed are quarter style car washes. Is there a quarter style cash wash? What is that address? I will have alot of bugs that I will need to power off.

    Russ and I will have Croftgate products with us if you want to hand wash at the hotel.

    There is one just south of Phoenix Street on the west side of the street on Blue Star Highway about three or four blocks west of the hotel a block or two south of Phoenix street.

    The other is about a mile south of Phoenix street North west of BLuestar Highway on Lagrange Street. It is behind the Village Market Gas station. There may be others I don't know.

    Don't need to, a bucket, a gallon of water, two capfuls of Croftgate, and two microfiber towels, and your car will look great. Will be happy to demonstrate on my car if you're skeptical.

    BTW, I'm not a dealer for the product, I just love using it and will promote it whenever I can.
