Have you seen this guy?

I've come across a hand car wash place on Instagram, called arkley hand car wash. Based in Enfield. Watching some of the videos he has up and I've never seen such a ridiculous way of using a pressure washer, it's not really achieving anything. I'm no pro but it seems like he's a bit of an idiot. Got tonnes of lovely cars coming in too but just a bizarre way of cleaning.

Would like to know what you all think and if I'm wrong or not.

Other than wasting a hell of a lot of water, it is a bit stupid and he's a bit of a tool!

I wonder how often he accidentally whacks customers' cars and hopes they don't notice. Prat.

Look we are all doing what we can for "exposure". But the right way is quality first, advertise the quality after. It seems the most popular way is advertise first, worry about quality later.
I respect the hustle, and unlike some DO believe there is a place for humour in our industry, but that is just noisy desperation with nothing backing it up

Glad I'm not the only one then. Should see some of the other videos. Some interesting techniques for sure!

I'm sorry guys but you have this all so wrong.

What you don't understand is that the motion of the twin sprays creates a self cleaning vortex, which when combined with the rhythm of the wrists, causes a cyclonic action; the entrainment of additional air within the flows of water results in a touchless and scratchless wash. The car ends up much cleaner, without the need for harsh chemicals.

Then the design of the tunnel he is working under forces the cold air (generated by the cold water flow) downwards and this draws in warmer air from the top sides of the tunnel, which pulls the water left (on the now clean car) downwards under gravity as the water is denser than the warm air. No need for drying, so a touchless drying to boot.


Before anyone gets fresh ideas about this, this post is now time stamped and therefore the IPR for this technique (henceforth to be known as the "wiggle wrist tunnel technique") now rests with me. Any attempts to copy this will result in swift litigation from my retained lawyer.

I would loose the plot if anyone went near my car waving two pressure washers around like Edward Scissorhands trimming a hedge.

I think you are too late to the party fatdazza. I believe the guy has already registered the trademark “Touchless Wash Airdry Technique “ or T.W.A.T. For short.
