Greetings Thrifty Friends,

Summer is finally here and people are washing their cars regularly again.

If you are one of the millions of drivers who wash their cars on a weekly basis, try washing it at home for pennies instead of springing the eight or nine bucks to go to a car wash. Not only will you save money, but you can reduce water waste and water pollution by using the simple tip below.

Keep pinchin' those pennies,

TODAY'S THRIFTY TIP: Wash your car on the grass.

You can get 64 oz. of car wash detergent for 5 or 6 dollars and it will last you all summer. It is not recommended to use dish soap or any other kind of household detergents because they can actually accelerate oxidation of your car's paint and eventually result in a dull finish. The opposite of what you want!

Wash your car on the grass. Not only will this give the grass a drink, the soil will help to break down impurities and prevent the water from entering storm water drains and winding up in local waterways. Some of the chemicals in car wash detergents are nutrients for algae; so this water getting into waterways can add to algae bloom and eutrophication problems.
