Read my post carefully. I was talking about 'touchless' car washes that are not water efficient, not just any car washes. Also washing cars in your driveway is banned in Arizona IIRC.

Mpower,

You just responded to a post made by Deepak more than a year back!

And isn't the ban on washing on the driveway enforced through out the country? Or is it just Arizona??

Default Lazy humans? Use automation

When one lacks committed human resources, or one's human resources lack commitment, Automation is one's only resort.

The world's best automatic car washes cannot compete for results,
with a skilled human with soap, water and a set of cloths.

Spray-on air-dry polishes cannot compete with a hand-buffed Carnauba wax polish.

That is why prize-winning classic cars in concours condition never see the obscurity of a car wash automat. They are invariably hand-washed. But BEST buses are washed everyday in automated washing stalls since 1992.

Lightbulb Drive-thru Car Wash in India?

After this spell of rain Chennai saw a few days back, I had to spend more than 2 hours to clean the "design" it drew on my black beauty! Hence the question- Is there any Drive-thru Car Washes in India?

Oops! I did search, but guess not the right key-word...

I wash the car myself, with one round of water all over to chase off the dust. Then to soften the hard mud on the sides with hand and washing them off. And then a run through the entire length with a wet (literally dripping) cloth, and then drying it with a moist cloth.

I made the mistake of using the same cloth for the wet round and the wipe round, and ended up with some marks (and kicked myself HARD). But what takes time in the mud part- and that's why I was looking if there is a better way out if the car gets too dirty.

Washing cars on the driveway is banned in the state of Victoria, Australia, in view of water scarcity. We have to go to car-washing stations [both self-operated and automated], where recycled water is used for that purpose.
