Mythbusters: 5 Car Wash Myths Debunked by the Raceway Crew.

As the summer sun beats down, there’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of a sparkling clean car. But with so much advice (and misinformation) floating around about car washing, it can be hard to know what to believe. The Raceway crew is here to set the record straight and debunk five common car wash myths.

Myth #1: Dish Soap is Just as Good as Car Wash Soap

While dish soap might work wonders on your pots and pans, it’s definitely not the best choice for your car’s paint. Dish soap is formulated to cut through grease and grime, which can strip away the protective wax coating on your car. Car wash soap, on the other hand, is specifically designed to gently clean while preserving the wax. 

Raceway’s Recommendation: Stick to a pH-balanced car wash soap like the one we use in our express washes. It’ll leave your car looking shiny and new without harming the finish.

Myth #2: The More Foam, the Better the Clean

We all love a good foam party, but when it comes to car washes, more foam doesn’t necessarily mean a better clean. Excessive foam can actually make it harder to rinse away dirt and debris, potentially leaving a residue behind.

Raceway’s Recommendation: Our express washes use just the right amount of foam to loosen dirt and grime without overwhelming your car’s finish. Plus, our high-powered rinse ensures everything washes away, leaving nothing but shine.

Myth #3: You Only Need to Wash Your Car When It Looks Dirty

Out of sight, out of mind, right? Wrong! Even if your car doesn’t look visibly dirty, it’s still accumulating dust, pollen, bird droppings, and other contaminants that can damage the paint over time.

Raceway’s Recommendation: Regular washes, even when your car seems relatively clean, are key to protecting its finish. Our Unlimited Wash VIP Membership makes it easy and affordable to keep your car looking its best year-round.

Myth #4: Hand Washing is Always Better Than an Automatic Wash

While a meticulous hand wash might seem like the gold standard, it’s not always the most practical or efficient option. Automatic washes, like those at Raceway, use advanced technology and specialized cleaning solutions to provide a thorough and consistent clean in a fraction of the time.

Raceway’s Recommendation: If you’re short on time or simply prefer a hassle-free experience, our express washes are the way to go. You’ll get a superior clean without the sweat and elbow grease.

Myth #5: Rain Can Wash Your Car for You

Rain might feel refreshing, but it’s not a substitute for a proper car wash. Rainwater often contains pollutants that can leave spots and streaks on your car’s surface.

Raceway’s Recommendation: Don’t rely on Mother Nature to keep your car clean. Swing by Raceway after a rainstorm to rinse away any residue and keep your car looking its best.
