Small businesses have typically had little to do with big data. That’s primarily because most owners have thought coping with it was too difficult, too expensive and just plain intimidating—notions that have generally sidelined the use of such information for anyone outside of the large corporations’ ballpark. Without it, smaller players have historically relied more heavily on something their larger counterparts could only dream of—a personal relationship with their customers. Today, however, big data isn’t just for the big guys.

For years, car washes have been a fundraising staple for high school sports teams, marching bands and youth groups. But in Arlington, Va., charity car washes and car wash fundraisers are now banned there, after the city's Department of Environmental Services issued new rules for stormwater and water runoff.

After recently getting a new car and noticing how dirty it gets during my long commutes to work — and getting a car wash and seeing how nice my car looked after — I began thinking about washing cars and the associated environmental impacts. This time around, I decided to look online and see what kind of car-friendly and environmentally friendly soap I should use. But what I found really surprised me. In order to limit how much water you use and other environmental impacts from washing your car, the best option isn't to wash it at home, it’s to take it to a commercial car wash.
