Car washes were packed on Friday as temp soared into the upper 40s.

VIP Express Car Wash manager Zach Gaines said this is his busiest time of the year and he has to double or triple staff to meet demand, "They know they are going to get that text message or phone call when they see it's above freezing."

Many car wash customers happy to get the dirt off of their vehicles, "It's nice to just be able to get out and enjoy the nice weather and still clean your car," said Bob Carter. 

"I gotta get this car cleaned, it's so awful. I can't even see through my windshield," said Amy Baratta. 

By the lunch hour Gaines said he already had over 250 cars come in and expects over 600 by the end of the day. 

Gaines warns drivers to wash their vehicles if they do have that brine mixture because it can cause rust on your vehicles.
