We use sponges.

We change water once it becomes dirty, which is about every hour or so. The dirt and murky water is drained and new water and soap mixture is put in.

Pricing:


Today's the last day for half-off, starting tomorrow those prices on the board will apply.

I dropped by for a wash yesterday morning but unfortunately was greeted with a new staff member that was being trained on how to wash a car by the boss. The new guy washed over half my car with the same initial soap and sponge without dipping the sponge into water to get more moisture. I had to ask him twice to get more water into the sponge. Pushing sudds around with a dirty sponge wasn't my idea of washing my black car. By the time he made it down one side of the car, the sponge was dry. He just kept flipping the sponge over and over again. Unfortunately for me, I now have swirls and scratches on my car.
Also, as much as I enjoyed seeing a cute Japanese girl wiping my car down, using a regular almost dry cloth trying to rub out road tar and sap wasn't how I wanted my car treated.
I told the boss about it when he invites me in to pay. But he wasn't too interested in hearing what I said.
Next time, I wor reconsider coming to this car wash. I do admit though, everyone was courteous, but just inexperienced.

^ which is precisely why i wouldn't bring my EK to a new car wash (no offense to akinari-kun). inexperienced car washers should really take extra training before touching dark coloured cars; especially black ones. the enticement of a 1/2 price deal is not worth having swirled paint!

with that said, i wouldn't mind coming by today with my EF if the line's not too long

Yikes.. I have a black car...
You guys dont like to use Microfiber mitt? they wash out easier then a sponge...
you should have 2 seperate containers.. one for soap and another for dipping the dirty sponge into to get most of the dirt out before it goes into the nice soapy water, this way you can save on soap and dont have to refill it as often..

just my $0.02

Don't worry, criticize as much as you'd like, I'm just someone working at a car wash. It's not like I run/own the place, won't feel offended as long as I know I'm doing the right things. With that being said, even if I do disagree on how to wash in a specific way, I still gotta follow the regulations set by the manager.

I myself would never want someone else wash or even touch my car, so if anyone is picky about swirls or scratches, take it to a detailing place instead, since it's pretty much guaranteed that your exterior will have some swirls afterwards.

However if any of you wanna bring your own wash utensils and have me wash your babies, I wouldn't mind doing so

QFT. Honestly, this is just another one of your Richmond hand wash places. If you go here, you will have minor scratches. This is not a detailing shop. This is a mass hand wash shop. They want quantity. Not quality.
