    Default Underbody wash??

    Hey folks, first time question poster on this site. Last night it rained and I was forced to drive the car home. It's the first big rain since the roads were last salted and I'm worried about the gunk and grime causing corrosion over time. I live an apartment and don't have a pressure washer or anything so I want to go to a carwash with an underbody rinse but the only one in my town has the rollers and there is no touchless. What should I do?

    I never felt like the under-body wash nozzles worked very well. anyway. I'd probably just take it to car wash with some 2 x 6 blocks, drive up on them and spray the best I could under there Just a thought.

    General rule to follow: Do no use anything more powerful than a garden hose to clean your vehicle. You do NOT want to force H2O into areas that it should not be.
