I used to wash my car by hand until I realized it was more environmentally sound to take it to a car wash, where the water can be properly treated and not run into the storm sewers.

As for the finish ... It's a car. A way to get from Point A to Point B. I'm more interested in how it runs than how it looks.

Definitely Men. I go to the car wash fairly often because my Dad taught us to keep our cars really clean, but I rarely see other ladies - maybe a few but the majority always are guys because they seem to be more detailed about keeping their cars clean and shiny. One thing is for sure, they take a lot more time to detail their cars.

It's an odd man who bases his self respect on how his vehicle gets washed.

I have a friend who does paintless dent repair at a local full-service car wash. I was up there yesterday helping him sell his services. Just from the few hours I spent up there, I would definitely say that more women than men bring their cars in. I would guess it to be 60-70% female customers.

Personally, I'm the only one who washes my cars.
