Question Environmentally Friendly Car Wash?

Does such a thing exist?

I've just moved to a new house on the weekend, and I have nowhere to wash my car, other then the driveway. The driveway runs down hill straight onto the road.

I'm no greeny, but I want to do things right when I can, and I know all those soap suds going down the drain aint good for all the fishy and bird things that live in our ocean's / creeks.

So, is there such a thing as a no harm car wash?

I like keeping my car spotless, and usually do a wash atleast once a week, sometimes more.

cheers . . . .

Re: Environmentally Friendly Car Wash?

I thought car lovers etc, were considered water and environmentally approved, as the recycle the water.

I am sure do a search a search on "drought" on here or "water restrictions" and you will find a kit that you can put together yourself.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Enjo (or alternative micro-fibre) glove and water. Never use detergent again.

I was sceptical but they work great.

Damn Enjo song!

I would if I could
The problem is, i've got no where in the front yard to put the car, other then the driveway.

No water restrictions here (that I know about), and I think with this rain were having this week, can't see one any time soon.
