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

    • Got my Helix 5. Now just need to get my sled out of storage and figure out where to mount it.
    • Now that's funny.  I chose not to answer a ignorant question that an elitist like yourself could care less the answer to.  The only reason you want an answer to that question is to spend the next week trying to find some ignorant reason he/she is a bad choice. #rentfree
    • But you couldn't articulate who your favorite Trump picks for justices were, or why.
    • Many of the resorts / cabins where I stay on weekend fishing outings do not have a fish cleaning house. I also do not like the smell of dead fish from the cleaning process in my home. My wheel house is a fishing shack only, non-sleeper, which I take off the ice each night. It has both A/C and propane heat so I usually plug it into an AC outlet at night.   I decided to build a retractable / drop-down fish cleaning table 17” x 48” up and out of the way while on the ice and a warm place to clean fish. I use clear news print between the my fish cleaning board and the table to eliminate the need to wash the table every time I use it. Functionally works well, still needs some finish touches, paint, stain, rust treatment. I can also see many uses for this table while on the Ice. Fish Cleaning Table.mp4
    • Big win for the team today. Not many folks thought they would go into Carolina and leave 3-0. If this offense can get their sh$t together this may be a fun year. Defense is the real deal.
    • We got a few Sat morning saw lot of birds but not many would come in.
    • We saw a ton of woodies, most wouldn't come close enough. We ended up with 9 ducks...Limited out on Blackducks haha
