As the weather warms up around the country, people may be more prone to step outside, soak up the sun and wash their own car. While some may think that washing one's own car is tedious or harmful to the environment, with the proper tools, washing your own car can be enjoyable - and there are a few ways to make the process greener.
A functioning hose is imperative when washing your car. You may also want to invest in spray nozzle attachments for your hose so that you can best control the stream of water.
Buckets are also handy to have around. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, if you turn off your hose between rinsings while hand-washing your car with a bucket of soapy water, you can save up to 150 gallons of water.
The Nature Conservancy suggests that individuals use environmentally friendly soaps instead of harsh detergents - after all, run off from washing your car is inevitable. The organization also recommends reusable microfiber towels instead of disposable products.
