I worked at a car wash in high school, one of the best part time jobs ever. Awesome boss (Thanks Paul), and I learned the art of properly washing a car in a self service bay...There is a method to it and a why you do what, and when.

Sunday morning I took the girlfriend's car for a clean up, and boy does that baby shine! Apparently I still got it, or something...Pre-soak, foam brush, wax spray a couple times over, shine up the wheels, and don't forget the spot free rinse.

If you are in a hurry or just don't wanna do it yourself....I thought I'd look into the best of best when it comes to car washes in the area. Like the marquee used to read at the car wash when I was a teen, "a clean car is a happy car." There were other saying on our marquee, I think I got in trouble for those.

According to Yelp, Here are the five best car washes in Rockford:

  • Mister Car Wash - 3708 E State St Rockford, IL 61104
  • Windsor Hand Wash & Detail - 518 Windsor Rd Loves Park, IL 61111
  • Wash Factory - 1104 River Ln Loves Park, IL, IL 61111
  • Supersuds Car Care Center - 999 S Perryville Rd Rockford, IL 61108
  • Extreme Clean Car Wash - 5051 State St Rockford, IL 61108

So put that tree on the mirror so your car doesn't smell, and soap it up. Great local businesses, great places to know the road bugs and dust off.
