MODESTO, Calif. — Prime Shine Car Wash continues its focus on saving water in the midst of the worst drought California has seen in three decades.
The carwash uses 75 percent less fresh water compared to home washes, according to a press release.
“Even through this drought, people do want to keep a clean car,” said company president Evan Porges. “But they want to make sure they’re doing it the right way, and a professional carwash is the way to do it.”

Porges says his company has focused on saving water since its founding more than 20 years ago, noted the release.
California Gov. Jerry Brown has urged residents to take their vehicles to carwashes that recycle water rather than to use a hose and bucket at home during the drought, stated the release.
Porges said in the release, “It’s the most efficient way to do it. The most environmentally sound way to do it.”
Prime Shine Car Wash is the only member of the International Carwash Association’s WaterSavers environmental certification program in the Northern San Joaquin Valley, according to the release.
