I love cars. I love clean cars even more. Having spent 45 minutes in line at a local car wash last night, I can tell you there is no greater waste of my time than waiting for my car to be cleaned. Cherry.com, please make your way to Denver soon.

Cherry.com is a website / mobile app that allows users to check in, and have their car washed whenever and wherever they might be. On the surface - This is an AWESOME idea. Simply check in on your mobile device (yes I'm assuming you have one), and the 'washer' closest to you will reply with an estimated time of arrival.

Cost? Really no different that what you'd find at a high end car wash - $29, which includes tip.

Hurdles? Feeling comfortable enough to leave your car unlocked for a total stranger. Yikes.

I'm THAT guy who watches how the car is driven on the wash track, I follow the car as it's pulled through the wash, and I pay attention to who and how the car is dried. I'm a bit of a car freak - I know. But I'd have a hard time not standing next to the washer as he does his work. At that point, I what am I gaining?
