    Car Wash 7th Mar 18 at 12:45 PM
    A friend has just told me that during March the Fire Brigade will wash your car for a donation to the Fire Fighters Charity. Not all fire stations unfortunately but if there's one near you and your car needs washing - especially after the weather last week .....I know mine could do with a hose down, and I won't have to get wet doing it

    I found a link to the map of where they are:

    https://www.firefighterscharity.org.uk/national-car-wash-league/car-wash-locations/

    Sadly my local one is greyed out and says "Postponed" The blue ones give a date.
    People only get upset
    when their expectations are not met.

    Picture on that site shows them using sponges. Who washes their car with sponges, especially if it's still new!

    My local jet wash is 1 for 90 seconds and it's open 24 hrs. Usually costs me 3 in total for pre-wash, soapy wash, and rinse options.
