Went to Rausch Creek this weekend and had a blast, but now I canít find a place to wash the fun off my jeep.  Is there anywhere around where I can just power wash it myself?

Thanks,

Don

Woodbridge has one.  Its on the left past McDonalds when going South.  There was also one at Route 1 and Lockheed Blvd I used to use a long time ago when I lived up that way.  Maybe its still there?  I think its a Shell gas station.

It is the first one you come to on the left going down "the hill" into Woodbridge on route 1, after you cross the Occoquan Bridge.  Lots of construction at the moment for route widening.

There's a giant billboard in their entry area lot that kind of hovers over the top of the building too.  The wash building is just a big gray/blueish steel building with wash bays.

I am military.  I found the wash on base at Andrews, but it's closed until further notice.   Sad

There's a three bay self-serve on Belvoir, on Gorgas Road, just east of the Arby's.  I'll try to swing by there tomorrow to see if they have it turned back on during this warm spell.

Edit to add: There's also Sam's across the river in Oxen Hill. It's a good facility and has a lot of bays, but it can get crowded.

This one is in Fairfax County just south down the hill from Beacon Mall on route 1.

FYI, the self car wash at Ft. Belvoir is up and running. All 3 bays going, and a good line going at lunchtime today.

Edit for future reference: $2 per ~ 5 minutes. Tokens only, and the token machine is on the front of the building. Accepts 1s, 5s, and 10s.
