Any self-serve bay carwashes in DC area?

I've only seen a couple of full service handwash establishments, and they are always overcrowded. Do self-serve carwashes exist in the general DC area? thx

I think there might be one on Rt 1 in Woodbridge but I haven't been down there in a long time.

There's one off I-395 in Arlington. It's at the Glebe Road exit, gas station just South of 395, next to Slavin & Sons. I'm pretty sure it uses recyled, salty water, though.

Thanks guys. It doesn't matter really how close it is, long as it's not too far away. I had not driven my car since the first snow when I took it out last Sunday night for a drive. It sat for 3 weeks or so, but started right up and idled sweet. Went up Connecticut hit the 495 to 66 west and kept on truckin' to Front Royal then turned around and came back. That's my regular 300D workout route.
Doesn't the filtration system at carwashes get rid of the salt? It would seem an awful liability in this day and age of litigation to be pumping salt water of all things thru the car wash wands. Hmm maybe I'll taste it first.
