The Best Car Wash in town....

9 posts in this topic

Goes to ???

I know that I was impressed by Hamline Auto's carwash on Broadway and Hwy 280, but yesterday I got a carwash on 35e and Diffley in eagan, and it was Great....

But where can I get the best ultimate, preferrably touchless, carwash?

IMO touchless sucks unless its a newly painted or barely dirty vehicle. I always go to misters cant beat there wash and hand dry, or the fact that i have coupons for 50% of there $15 best wash.

Touchless is a maintenance wash. It is intended to use in between hand wash/waxes. If your not taking care of your paint than touchless will not work for you.

this is going to sound like a plug for holiday but it is not. The Oakdale Holiday has a pretty good touchless and I usually try to make it to this one. I have heard really good reviews about car wash at the new Holiday on 80th in cottage grove. The Shoreview Exxon has a pretty impressive tunnel wash also.

I am not a big van of velvet grit (brush) washes!

I used to go to a car wash on Robert St. I think it was Signal Car Wash. It was free on your birthday and they did a real nice job.

I go out of my way to go to any Holiday that has the soft cloth wash. The difference between that and a touchless is amazing. Plus some of them have an attendant that does a high pressure prewash and provides you with an interior wipe to clean the inside while the outside is getting washed. All for about 8 or 9 dollars.

I like the cheap Fleet Farm touchless carwash, $5 wash including underbody with gas purchase.

During the warmer months I'll run it thru the FF carwash, then head home and hand wash it.

No chance I'm hitting any carwash that isn't a touchless, my black truck shows the slightest of swirl marks, so I'm the only one who touches it.

I go to Bolers in St. Paul. $12 and it's pre-washed, ran through a wash, hand dried, windows cleaned, vacuumed, the works. Can't beat it.

I hit the Oakdale touchless a lot as well in the winter. Does a gppd job but touchles is what it is... will never be as clean as if it were hand mopped but still always looks a lot better coming out than it did going in. The touchless at the top of the hill here in Hooterville (Lonsdale) is a good one as well. Freds has discount tickets for it as well. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././jimbo

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
