How to Run a Successful Car Wash.


Your layout is important and inevitably determines how many cars you can wash.


There are certain supplies you will need such as:

Sponges (2)
Buckets (3)
Garden Hoses
Window Cleaner
Coffee Can Collection Box
Clip Boards (2)
Whistle with Strings (2)
Stop Watch
Squeegees (3)
Chamois (2)

When people think about car wash, they think of fun, water fights, etc. A few water fights are ok  but remember you are there to make money. If you take away all the fun you won’t get hard work out of anyone. If you run your car wash like a drill sergeant you will:
Break momentum
Find workers taking breaks
Wash less cars
Have no volunteers next year
Be hated for ruining a perfect Saturday

For every jobs, you must assign tasks that must be done for each person. Since we recommend that your car wash be from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm you should divide your washers and sign holders in half. If you’ve done well at marketing, you will have so many cars to wash that you will never finish. Use that high energy in a positive way so your worker makes more money.

You need to supervise the drying area. This activity is very important.

Fr promotion, you should be make big and visible poster board, bright colors. The letters should be wide. Use very few words. The words should be able to be read from twenty to thirty yards away while driving in a car moving at twenty-five to thirty-five miles an hour. You should have CAR WASH in big letters and a positive word such as:

Low Price

You will need between eight and ten signs strategically placed around the intersection and a couple down the streets with the highest traffic that lead directly to your car wash fundraiser site, perhaps one-half mile or so away. Make three to four signs half size and use those as hand sign held up by kids on the street corners.

Public Address System

The single most important item in the operations is to keep the cars moving. If your dryers start backing up, move them further from the wash area and allocate additional dryers, one at a time, until the problem stops. If people in the cars are hanging around after their wash, tell them to park off to the side or out of the way of the car wash proceedings.


Distributing flyers is important. If your car wash gets slow, send members of your group to each grocery store nearby and to each fast food restaurant to pass out flyers.


You should have the person in charge count the money with another person so in case anybody thinks there might be missing monies,  the exact amount can be verified.  Also keep the stack of tickets received from the customers attending your car wash

You will also need another supervisor so no customers attempt to accuse your crew of having items missing from their car.
