Wash Cars Well

Washing your Car WSP

Washing your car on a driveway sends soap, scum, and oily grit into your street’s storm drains. These storm drains then flow into lakes, rivers, and ponds where.

The stuff we use to wash our cars and the stuff we wash OFF our cars is not good for fish and other aquatic wildlife. 

So how do you avoid this whole mess? Easy. The best option is to take your car to a commercial car wash where the water gets treated and recycled. If you want to do it at home, then wash your car on grass or gravel instead of the street.  

Two more tips for washing cars at home. 

  • Use soap sparingly. Use a hose nozzle with a trigger to save water. 
  • Pour your bucket of soapy water down the sink when you’re done, not in the street
