Brown Bear Car Wash celebrates 60th anniversary with free ‘Beary Clean’ car washes on Aug. 24

Brown Bear Car Wash celebrates its 60th anniversary on Thursday, Aug. 24, by offering free “Beary Clean” car washes at 24 tunnel wash locations from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Brown Bear Tunnel Car Wash is at 1202 W. Meeker St., Kent.

Last year’s one-day event added sparkle and shine to 29,673 cars and trucks throughout the Puget Sound area, which surpassed the previous one-day record of 26,437 set in 2015.

During their 60 years celebration, on Aug. 24 only, two lucky customers will be selected to receive free car washes for a year: an annual membership to Brown Bear’s Unlimited Wash Club. Enter to win by taking a photo of your newly-washed vehicle and posting it on Twitter (@brownbear) or Instagram (@brownbearcarwash) with the hashtag #FreeCarWashDay.

For the past 10 years, family-owned Brown Bear has provided more than 280,000 free washes as it celebrated its August “birthday” with customers and honored veterans and current service members on Veterans Day.

“This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the community that has supported us for 60 years,” Odermat said. “It’s a fun and busy day as we celebrate with our customers while benefitting the environment.”

Widely recognized for its environmentally-friendly practices, Brown Bear uses gentle, biodegradable cleaning detergents at all its locations.
