BROOKLYN - Car washes in the borough are thriving as residents begin to clean off the salt and residue from last week's blizzard.

At Joshua's Car Wash, there were lines of vehicles waiting to get a wash, wax and interior cleaning.  

Many waiting on the line say they have been busy all week with work, and this was the first time they had to get the chore done.  

The car wash staff says it's definitely a good idea to get out and clean your car. Not only can the salt and snow damage the paint, but it can also get on your clothes.
