Everybody realises the importance of looking after our planet and saving water.
One of the key principles for eco-friendly car washing is washing with a bucket not a hosepipe and doing it on the lawn, not on the roadside. When washing with a hosepipe, all the nasty's get taken with the water into the drainage system and may find its way into rivers and streams!
