I don't live in OH but can categorically tell you the very best place to get a car wash (and the only place I would ever go) is my driveway . Anywhere else is asking for trouble... swirls, marring, scratches, harsh chemicals. I might be a car wash snob but I have very good reason to be so. It's almost like having a kid and then hiring an incompetent Nanny who can't speak english to raise them... I wouldn't do that either

if you want higher quality, expect to pay for it! $50-$75 car washes from top detailing pros who use the 2-bucket method, are very meticulous, etc dont do things for $20 washes done in 1-1.5 hours!

Eh, I don't trust most carwashes... Usually they will do more harm than good. If it's a good detailer, then they can perform a good maintenance wash on your car, but it will be a lot more expensive than some $10 drive through wash...

I was my car by myself Best way to make sure it's done right, and if it's messed up then all I can do is blame myself
