Green Car Wash, sort of

Washed the van today in the environmentally sound way - I parked it on the lawn and used a non-toxic cleaner. By parking the car on the lawn and using a trigger nozzle, you can save gallons of water. It sends the water you DO use into the ground and surrounding trees and shrubs instead of down the city sewer, and if the soap is safe it won't hurt anything green. It's not quite as shiny as the spot-free rinse at the coin wash but it's clean all the same. I had to chuckle thinking how much I DIDN'T look like the woman in Cool Hand Luke. Feels good to do something right.

What a great idea - on the lawn and non-toxic.

Thank you, you have inspired me.
