I took it to a manual wash...sprayed the bejesus out of it then went to an autowash, which I wont go back to, and it still stunk. I like the simple green soak idea

WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!


heehee.

you should go get your oil changed before you wash the undercarriage. that would be funny to watch how they deal with it.

btw, good job with the save. the kid spinning out is funny.

Spray some vinegar in the wheel wells make sure the paint around the area is soaking wet, i creamed a family of at least 4 skunks doesnt get any worse than that and my car doesnt like to sleep in the drive garage only, the smell went away after a few days, also heavy duty degreaser will remove bad smell, good luck

DONT USE VINEGAR.(not to be rude but I use vinegar to make steel rust on ornamental work) Vinegar will greatly accelrate rust especialy if the metal is hot

EDIT: but you are in Michigan it might not be any worse than the salt they laydown on the roads if you do use vinegar make sure your car is cool

safe on the paint? The PW has a attachment that you can put liquids in to spray too.
I wouldn't put it on paint. Wheel wells and underbody ...underneath I mean..should be ok though.

I spray my wheelwells and surrounding fenders every time I wash her with
simple green. never has bothered the paint or wax.
