REDWOOD CITY (CBS SF) — A Redwood City car wash is taking water conservation during California’s drought, cleaning cars with just one cup of water.
“We do use a cup of water. When you say waterless, people start thinking, ‘Hey, where’s the lubrication?’ So, there is water, but only a cup,” Eco Green Auto Clean owner Anton VanHappen said.READ MORE: 2 Injured, 1 With Serious Burns, In East Palo Alto House Fire
The car wash is located in the high-tech haven of Silicon Valley, but uses low-tech solutions to save water, like spray bottles instead of hoses. The bottles also contain secret plant extracts and a chemical designed to lift dirt.
“It’s kind of a car-spa,” said VanHappen.READ MORE: COVID Vaccines: Marin County Set To Expand Eligibility; Seniors Say Finding Appointments Still A Challenge
