Automatic Car Washes Closures After Boom In Hand-Wash Services Saw this piece on Sky News this morning, quite interesting. I wouldn't use either an automatic car wash, OR one of those hand wash places as a) you don't know what products they are using and b) I don't want my paintwork scratched to bu**ery! From this piece, 70% of people disagree... I'm sure more people used to wash their own cars when I was younger. What ever happened to the Sunday morning ritual in the suburbs?!
