The Car Wash Encyclopedia: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know (But Were Afraid to Ask)


Summer’s here, and that means it’s time to give your ride the TLC it deserves. But when it comes to car washes, there’s a lot of information (and misinformation!) swirling around. Don’t worry, the Raceway Crew is here to clear the confusion with our Car Wash Encyclopedia!


Chapter 1: Car Wash 101 – The Essentials

  • Why wash your car? It’s not just about looking good (although that’s a bonus). Regular washes protect your car’s paint from dirt, grime, bird droppings, and other nasty stuff that can cause damage over time. Plus, a clean car just feels good, doesn’t it?
  • How often should you wash your car? There’s no magic number, but we recommend washing your car every 1-2 weeks, especially during the summer months when the sun and heat can accelerate damage. And if you’re an Unlimited Wash VIP member at Raceway, you can wash as often as you like without breaking the bank!


Chapter 2: The MythBusters

  • Myth #1: Dish soap is a car wash substitute. Nope! Dish soap strips away the wax that protects your car’s finish. Always use a pH-balanced car wash soap like the ones we use at Raceway.
  • Myth #2: More suds = cleaner car. Wrong again! Excess foam can be difficult to rinse, leaving behind residue that dulls your shine.
  • Myth #3: Automatic car washes scratch your car. This one’s outdated! Modern automatic washes like ours use soft-touch materials and advanced technology to safely and thoroughly clean your car.
  • Myth #4: Rain is nature’s car wash. Rainwater actually contains pollutants and minerals that leave spots and streaks.
  • Myth #5: Waxing is only for show cars. Wax is like sunscreen for your car’s paint! It protects against UV rays, oxidation, and environmental damage.


Chapter 3: The Raceway Advantage – More Than Just a Car Wash

We’re not your average car wash. Here’s why Raceway is the ultimate destination for car care:

  • Eco-Conscious Approach: We prioritize sustainability with water reclamation systems and eco-friendly products.

  • Extras That Elevate: Free vacuums with every wash, premium microfiber towels, and a friendly crew that’s always happy to help.

Chapter 4: Your Burning Car Wash Questions Answered

  • Should I wash my car in the sun? Nope! The sun can cause soap and water to dry quickly, leaving spots and streaks. Wash your car in the shade or early morning/late afternoon when it’s cooler.
  • How can I prevent water spots? Dry your car immediately after washing using a clean microfiber towel or chamois.
  • Do I need special cleaner for my wheels? Yes! Wheels and tires need a stronger cleaner to remove brake dust and road grime. Ask our crew about our wheel cleaning options.
  • What if my car has a ceramic coating? No problem! Just let our crew know, and we’ll adjust the wash process accordingly.
