    C'mon down to FL and do it during hurricane season, you'll get a high pressure rinse, guaranteed spot free...of course, it might end up in the next county, but, that's what the eye is for(some people call the eye of a hurricane intermission, or half time)

    If spin dry is what you need visit tornado country.

    IT will be in the next county, but hey...it's free.

    I hear mother nature does a hail of a good job when it comes to a good wash an dry.

    Sirscrapntruckalot - Any chance there is an award for most bad puns in one thread?

    Slightly insane.

    I wonder, do you take the floor mats out and wash them, to get the piss from the Peelot off them?

    I'm probably totally insane about such things. I don't go in truckstop anymore, but I sometimes have no choice but to use a job Johnny. I ALWAYS scrub the floor mats after being in one of those.

    Yes, I wash my truck in the rain, thunderstorms, snow, sleet and sometimes hail. But, it's part of the job around here, and I'm paid to do it.

    Yes. I’ve got some spray bleach that I hit them with first...just to kill any critters keen to hold on and infect me with windowlickeritis. :)

    Rain WAS distilled water, but it formed around dust in the air in order to form a droplet.

    We run a 24/7/365 operation so the units get filthy,
    especially during winter.
    State EPA regs don't allow on site washing even with a mobile service.
    I hit a beacon wash when I'm near one regardless of weather.
    Never a line when stuffs falling from the sky.

    Wash the car on way to work, sometimes on the way home too, in rain and snow w a unlimited wash pass, and yes I do get looks as I exit during crap weather.

    Yes, but it isn't full of minerals, they were left behind. It's still going to be a practical spot free rinse.
