Coachella Valley students are washing cars for a school trip — without water!
Middle schoolers from John Glenn Middle School hope to be in front of Lamppost Pizza on Highway 111 in La Quinta every weekend to raise money for a school science trip to Costa Rica.
California is in a drought, so they are doing the carwash without using any water. Each car is sprayed with a special, eco-friendly chemical that lifts dirt with two wipes of a micro-fiber cloth.
“California is in the most severe drought we’ve been in in forever, so I thought how in the world can I do that? So I did some research with waterless car wash products,” says teacher Becky Kloster. “The kids are doing a real good job, working hard, washing all these cars today and tomorrow, and it will be an ongoing carwash.”
Each car wash is $7.50. The materials used are donated by the Chemical Guys.
Each child needs to raise $2,700 to go on the trip in June 2015.
