Again another post about summer activities…
I am sure car buffs like to wash and polish their cars in the summer. But keep in mind a few pointers to minimize the environmental impact.
1. If you can, wash your car in a car wash even if it is not an automatic wash. (Those car wash bays allow you to wash your own car and have fun in the water)
2. Use a nozzle that shuts off the water when you are not spraying water.
3. Finally, empty your soap bucket into a sink or toilet so that the water gets to a treatment center. If you just toss it in the gutter it will go into a storm sewer and eventually drain to your local waterway, adding phosphates to the water which increases BOD (biological oxygen demand)
