There many various ways in cleaning up a specific object; one of which is the car. Maybe it takes time for us to clean a car, but probably you will say it's nice to see things clean.

If elected, he said, he would "serve no one religion, no one group, no one cause and no one interest.


Just keep trying. No matter what, time goes on.

Well, every time we buy cleaning products, we are all responsible for checking the content of those products. We're doing it not only for the sake of saving the environment, but also for maintaining good health for our family. I'm using a Mazda used car. My dealer in Indianapolis taught me such tips about the maintenance of this car, and proper cleaning. If you're a newbie car owner, I think you must ask someone about the proper maintenance and cleaning.


I would suggest that Rowan have several outfits of work clothing; he could store the dirty outfits in a tick-tight container and that way save up a few outfits to wash together. At least he would not be washing & drying work clothing every night.

Living in a much modernized and technology-base world, nothing is impossible. Fake and artificial things would look closely natural and real as people would wish to just like synthetic lawns that is now a days commonly used in sports field.

I'm a car enthusiast myself, and I take good care of my car. I frequently wash my car with just plain water, not using any chemical at all. This helps to protect the paint of my car and saves the environment. Really, all you need is just clean water to keep your car clean. Only clean with chemical probably once in 1-2months.

Based from what I read, maybe I could choose car washing at home since it is quite practical to do and you could save a lot of resources compare to green lawns. Besides, I got some knowledge in car washing.

Think green environment, then we should just wash our cars with water instead of using chemical car wash shampoo.

I would have to admit it's because the lawn care industry is much more bigger than the car wash industry.

I totally agree with you. Commercial car washers are trained to safeguard the environment. I know, DIY car washing is less expensive and you have a hands-on cleaning of your own car but the thing is, it is more costly (in our environment)

Hmm, that's a pretty reasonable debate. I prefer cleaning a car with just water, since some of the cleaning soaps in the market can harm your car. And it's sensible to clean your car and do lawn maintenance at the same time.

After reading this I think I'll will definited stick to washing my car commerically instead of at home. It some point in time all of this things need to be regulated. It's naive of us to think that any of these activities will not come back to haunt us in the future, our planet is not invincible.

There's nothing to worry about when cleaning cars at home, or outside the garage. Most car soaps are designed to have minimal effect on plants and grasses.
