Why Automatic Car Washes Are the WORST

It happened to all of us at one point or another…

And it’s affected us for the rest of our lives, leaving an imprint of trauma to follow us everywhere we go. There’s no escape from it as adults. We walk around with the shadow of it, knowing that we may never fully heal from the experience. What horrors could I be describing?

The horrors of the Automatic Carwash.

It came looming and out of nowhere. Its hungry arches sharp and frightening, waiting to swallow us whole like the entrance to some demonic Haunted House attraction at a carnival in hell.

And it gets worse from there. Automatic Carwashes are still the worst, now that we’re adults. But for slightly less irrational reasons than we had when we were kids.

They’re not safe for a number of reasons, most of which are completely rational. So let’s walk through our Hall of Horrors which document why Automatic Car washes are just no good for your car.

First of all, they scratch. Just like a rabid monster in the depths of darkness, Automatic Carwashes have claws. The old, touch-bristles these carwashes use to clean your car are rarely cleaned themselves. Because of this, these bristles have old guck stuck onto them, the residue of which is scratched into the sides of your innocent car. Even when they are cleaned, these bristles are sharp and do your car more damage then they do favours.

And if these claws of death are not enough to make you go running in the other direction, let’s talk poison. That’s right, these beasts are full of poison (which they shoot towards their unsuspecting victims like from the fangs of a rattlesnake). Of course, we’re only talking about the harsh chemicals that these carwashes use to break the bond between the dirt and your car’s paintjob. The chemicals these automatic car washes use are rarely environmentally sound, often utilizing harsh acids that will undoubtedly strip away any protective coating on your vehicle.

If claws and poison haven’t frightened you then high-pressure water systems probably won’t either. But they’re definitely not good for your car. Automatic carwashes use high-pressure water sprays to clean away at the chemicals they’ve slathered your vehicle in. And they can be definitely damaging. The problem presented by high pressure water systems is that they enforce water into areas where water really shouldn’t be going, occasionally damaging your car and its electrical components.

What comes next may shock even the bravest of souls, so we urge you to continue reading at your own risk. We’re getting into the darkest, most frightening part of the automatic car wash. Trigger warnings may apply:

We all know the worst part of the automatic carwash is always saved for last. And it’s a terrifying finale of epic of proportions.

The automatic dryer.

Waiting by the exit of carwash like a spider hanging from above. Waiting. Watching. Until you think you’re finally safe. Hanging from above the exit, like a cruel joke, to descend upon you and vacuum your vehicle dry.

These dryers are harmful, not just to my fragile psyche but to your cars exterior as well. The drying methods of most automatic carwashes are ineffective and can overheat your vehicles exterior. The most effective way to dry your car is by hand. In fact, the most effective way to wash a car is by hand – something Wash Me Now does better than any other business out there.
