Ducky’s Car Wash has a soft-cloth wash system that uses recycled water which is filtered by a reclamation system to guarantee clean water.

Despite the continuing drought in much of California, car washes are thriving on the west coast. In fact officials in San Mateo County are offering incentives to people who opt to have their cars washed professionally instead of at home. The Daily Journal reports that residents we’re being given $5 off their wash after a new initiative by the local government.

According to a press release from the county’s health system, having your vehicle washed professionally can save dozens of gallons of water, the equivalent of four showers or 10 loads of dishes. Most car washes use less than 20 gallons per vehicle, the release said. The agency is also hoping to avoid pollution of the local bay by offering the discount.

“Water is so vital to San Mateo County; it is indispensable in our daily lives and we have the good fortune to be surrounded by beautiful water on both sides. We all play a role in saving and protecting water now and for future generations, and we’re pleased to partner with 10 local car washes that are committed to reducing water use and preventing pollution,” San Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley wrote in a statement.
