Downtown Chicago BRUSHLESS car washes

Where are they?!!? I been living in my new place in the west loop for a while now, and have yet to come across any brushless automatic car washes! I am willing to make a little drive to get one.

Also are there any self washes close by?!

Thanks!

You mean touch less? Why not get it hand washed? If your looking for a great hand wash, there is a place on 30th and Kedzie. By far the best hand wash in the city. As far as touch less
in the West Loop good luck. I would think the property values are too high for someone to open a touch less wash in your area. The only one I can think of, but not the nicest area is on Madison, just east of Kostner on the south side of the street.

Yep touchless, brushless whatever! Nothing but pressurized water touching my ride!

Eh always have been leery about taking to hand wash places, I am pretty anal about what sponges, towels, soaps, waxes and hands touch my truck!

Thanks for the heads up about the one in Garfield park, I def will have that a shot!

I know of Simon's, my buddy took his Escalade there and I think he paid close to $35 for a full wash! Little pricey imo.

lol, I'm just as anal bro. 85% of the time I wash my own car or truck. But the hand car wash I mentioned, I'm pretty comfortable with.

Go buy two buckets, 2 grit guards and buy some ONR and wash away in the lot of your new complex.

All you need to do is fill up the buckets with water.

Try the Car Wash on Randolph by Alhambra Palace as they hand wash cars.... Does your Rig have Black Chrome wheels on it? I am in the Westloop everyday and always see a black one by my job... NO self car washes that I know around here....

Trust me I have been looking for a source of water in/near the parking garage! I live in a high rise so transporting 10 gallons of water is a whole project in itself! lol

Thanks for the heads up! I really just don't trust anyone with a sponge on my Jeep unless its me lol. No, but I see that guy too! as well as a modern blue. I have full CF venom hood and some DC special 5' corsa look tips and am usually hiding in the garage during the day!

Any touchless washes anywhere in the city?! Doesn't have to be in the loop. I don't mind driving, with winter coming up I just need to find a place close that has under carrige sprayers as well.

I hate dirt worst than scratches, so I have the year wash deal at fullers and
wash her 5 days week. Then every couple months they buff/wax and she's like new.
It's a friggen truck homee's. Worst thing that's happened twice is I left it in auto rain
sensing and the wiper got trashed. Dumfk . Thinking about wrapping it up like the albino/
storm trooper 2012's.
