Since DiBrito's East Side Car Wash, 2124 N. Farwell Ave., closed in 2006 I've been on a bit of a quest to find a good, convenient car wash close to Downtown.
Not just a drive-through gas station wash, of which there are several, but a good inside/out wash that really cleans out the car and gives you a bit of that new car feel and smell.
I've found Jimbo's Car Wash, 310 E. Capitol Dr., to be a good option. It's not too far from the office or home and the people are very nice. More here.
Yet, I still long for another option or two. You know, for those sunny winter (and summer) days when you just really want a clean car.
So, tell me which is your favorite Milwaukee area car wash? Are you a Scrub-A-Dub loyalist or do you just pull through the quick wash at your local gas station?
Use the Talkback feature and give us some more car wash options.

Metro Car Wash....right here in downtown Mke....1510 N Van Buren.
Full service and proffesional attitude.
Suburban Car Wash located at 10030 West Appleton Avenue
in Milwaukee is the BEST. 5-6 guys vacuum out the inside, wipe down your dash, clean the windows on the inside and hand dry the outside. Awesome service and very reasonable prices. I won't go to a Scrub-A-Dub ever again.
Speedee Car Wash on 13th and Layton on Milwaukee's South Side was the best self - service car wash in Milwaukee. It was heated in the winter and had awesome employees. Too bad the owner closed the place 11 years ago. I can't find a decent place to wash my cars these days. The owner does still run Olivas Garage which is right next store does good auto repair work.
The best Car Wash ever was Speedee Car Wash on 13th and Layton on Milwaukee's South Side. It was a 12 bay heated indoor self-service car wash. This place was awesome. Too bad the owner closed it 11 years ago. Can't find a decent place to wash my car these days. The owner also runs an automotive repair garage right next door and that place is awesome as well and still open.
