You know I to wonder the same thing. Why do they close at 9?? Winter seasons are messy and require more washind and yet they are closed earlier? Kind of stupid IMO.

Every laser wash in the valley is open 24 hours, figured it was the same in Anch. Washed my car early yesterday and my brakes ended up freezing on me, they didn't seem to like the combination of water and near zero temperatures.

Yeah, It's located next to Shuck's on Debarr and about 1 min. from where I live. Also, the $13 wash gives your car a coating of Rain-X that does the same job of the wax that was put on 2sec. before. But it is nice not having to drive cross town for a wash.

Ouch, and I thought the touchless on 5th was expensive at $12.00, the ER touchless is $10.00 and has WAY better dryers then the POS ones that the 5th ave touchless has.

I just buy the cheapest with underbody/ wheel spray. No matter what you pay for you will still have all the tar on your lower half.

Mudbusters Carwash in Wasilla is the best carwash in AK. Ever in wasilla try it. They warranty their washes if you get the $10 or $12 wash. Meaning if your car doesn't get clean, let the attendant know and they will let you clean it in the Self Serve bay for free. The Bug and Tar in the SS works great. You can watch the tar start running.
