Are there any car wash places left in Fayetteville that have handheld pressure wands?

If you have a pressure washer, I highly recommend getting a foam cannon. You can grab them off Amazon for around $15. Get some pH neutral soap from Chemical Guys or Adams. Works great.

Also, for maintenance cleaning (no grit, etc.) I use CarPro Ech2o mixed with CarPro Reload (mix is 1:10-1:15 of both with water). Simply spray and wipe a section, then go back over with a dry towel. The Reload puts a sealant on top that works really well.

Very much appreciated, but I don't have a pressure washer and I'd like to try a wand-type carwash to try to clean an outdoor rug (not my car).

I bought one of those foam cannons and it makes a lot of foam but I can't see how the hell it makes washing a car any easier or better. Still have to use a sponge unless your car isn't really dirty to begin with. I do like the chemical bros soap. Amazon will have that stuff on sale quite often so don't buy it near the stupid MSRP.

There is one at the corner of 16/Crossover called Portside Carwash. It’s ok but there is nothing else remotely decent anywhere near the area. Self-washes have all disappeared. Fucking ridiculous.

Think the one down in West Fork still works.

Since it is ph neutral it can sit and not be rinsed immediately. I typically spray foam, then use a different mitt for each section to wash, then rinse, then dry. Probably saves me 30 mins from traditional wash, rinse, repeat. I also use Optimum No Rinse from time to time as well if it's just a little dirty.

So why haVE they disappeared in Fayetteville?  Are good ol' hand held washers not funky enough?

They still seem to be everywhere everywhere else.

Automatic washes can be found easily but not hand/wand washes. If the funky people get their wishes we’ll be washing cars with piss drainage.

Thanks!  That's about as far from my house as it's possible to be within Fayetteville.  It'll have to do, though.  This rug really ties the space together.

For outsiders: the '50s-themed wand-type wash on Joyce has been replaced with an unbelievably nice auto garage.  The one on Township is now an empty lot with a temporary-looking shrub seller.  The one on College is of course now a Starbucks and a cookie shop.

The one in Elkins used to be the best anywhere.   Hot water and tons of pressure. 

Washed most of my great uncle down the drain there when he got run over by the brush hog.

You talking behind the old Elk Horn or at the intersection of 16 and 74?  Back in high school I used that 74 wash a ton.  I could put $1.50 in that thing and wash mine and my buddies truck after a trip out to White Rock.  Was also a good place to wash off my boots on days I had worked in the chicken houses.  Then stop off at Smith's barber shop in the shed next door for one of the two haircuts he could do, buzzcut or a slightly less uniform buzzcut for $4.00.

74/16.  Elk horn wasn’t even a think when I left.  The 74 one lasted forever and was great.  Loved it. 

Smitty’s buzz cut depending on how much he had been drinking.   Got all my childhood haircuts there. 

The old laundromat was always fun too.  It is a donut shop now, right?

O Nights of Ni

I had the same exact thought while typing it.

Roger: Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies.  There is a pestilence upon this land.  Nothing is sacred.  Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress at this period in history.
King Arthur: Did you say shrubberies?
Roger: Yes, shrubberies are my trade.  I am a shrubber.  My name is Roger the Shrubber.  I arrange, design, and sell shrubberies.
[pause]
Sir Bedevere: Ni!
King Arthur: [stops him] No!

Elk Horn made a pretty good burger when they opened.   I left in 97 or so about a year after it opened.   Casey's, Harps and Sonic killed the Elk Horn like they almost killed the the old shell station next to Pizza Junction before they expanded.   

As for haircuts, you wanted to see Smith late in the day when his hands were steady.   Had a buddy that swore one day Smith ran out of booze and took a swig of the barbicide.  I vaguely remember on old barber out at Durham in the East side of the Durham store, but I was so young when I went there I'm not sure if it was Smith or not. 

 The old laundromat went from laundry, to a pawn shop, to a video store, then daylight donuts twice.

The Pretty’s did Elk Horn didn’t they?  I went to school with Travis. 

Smitty, when he wasn’t steady, could make you bleed something awful.  When he could bring out the straight razor for the back of your neck...you wanted him to go to that little side room and Medicare a little bit.

Been the donut place a few times on the way to fishing at like 5am.   Mmmm, bear claw.

Ditto. In fact didn’t the old store used to have one of those striped barber pole signs?
