Hey everyone, it’s me, Soapy Joe.

Cruising through the car wash here takes about 2 minutes and 40 seconds from when you enter the tunnel of magic. That’s a tiny portion of your day, but I know it can feel like an eternity when you’ve got places to go and people to see. Here’s how I like to make the time fly:

You’ll make someone’s day. They don’t have to know that it took being locked in your car with soap and floppy squeegees all around for you to call them.

Jam Out

I mean more than sing along. Be a star. Everyone loves some car wash karaoke!
