The car wash business has seen a lot of news — both strange and sad — in the last few days. Here’s the latest from around the web:

    1. In Huntsville, Ala., an early morning blaze Tuesday struck the Super Sonic Express Car Wash on North Memorial Parkway. Here’s the strange thing: Local news reports conflict about whether the car wash was completely destroyed or just mildly damaged and quickly extinguished. Assuming the latter AL.com report is the correct one, fire fighters say they haven’t determined the cause, and the owner hasn’t said whether the car wash was open for business today.
    2. There’s a new car wash at Michigan State University. “In line with MSU’s sustainable practices … approximately 70 percent of the water used in the car wash is reclaimed,” the university says. Just one catch — it’s only for university vehicles.
    3. It’s Day Two of The Car Wash Show in Chicago. For those of you there and for those of you following along at home, see our previous posts on the industry’s biggest annual conference.
    4. Meanwhile, in the West Bank, a Palestinian car wash owner tried a third time to build a car wash business without Israeli permission — and for a third time it got demolished, according to the local news wire.
    5. And finally, here’s something you don’t see in Miami. A car wash employee in Scranton, Pa., came to work on Saturday and discovered that one of the hoses had been running all night. Click here to see the video. Pickaxe, anyone?
