When you wash your car on pavement, the rinse water runoff — along with all the chemicals it contains — can go to storm drains that empty directly into rivers and streams. This pollution has been proven to negatively impact aquatic life and ecosystems. At Shine ‘N Drive Car Wash , water is routed for treatment prior to its return to the environment. Our wash also uses only 40 gallons (151.5 liters) or less of fresh water per car wash — less than the typical home washing machine. Do your part for clean water. Wash your car at Shine ‘N Drive Car Wash®.
