Car Wash Publications
Links and other information.  Publications in alphabetical order.

If you are new to the car wash industry we recommend that you get a subscription to all six of these publications. (Yes, all six.) Apparently Professional Carwashing & Detailing has the largest circulation, with Auto Laundry News in a close second. Self-Serve Car Wash News seems to have a loyal following among self-serve owners.  WashTrends is for those who are interested in knowing the hottest trends in the industry.  All of these magazines include excellent ideas for operating car washes.  You can decide later which magazines are most important to you.
