WICHITA, Kan. — Saturday was particularly busy for area washes, as owners wanted to get all the chemicals and snow removed from their vehicles, according to the Wichita Eagle.

Joe’s Carwash had 20 extra employees working, 10 part-time and 10 temporary, to handle the rush. The owner of the wash, Duane Steven, said the business had somewhere around 800 vehicles by 1:30 p.m.

Steven added that the wash business should continue to see increased sales for nearly a week.
