at the recent Franchising Expo in Sydney.
Sue believes that they have found a great business opportunity for women.
“Owning my own business is a complete lifestyle change. I was office-bound for

Ecowash Mobile, we have a great flexibility. Plus, it is such an innovative
idea. We love introducing the new concept to customers and see their reactions.

The Ecowash Mobile approach uses an exclusive product range that includes a
2-in-1 wash and polish biodegradable compound. The compound is sprayed onto the
car exterior, encapsulates surface dirt that is then removed with a soft cloth.
The polish does not only leave a protective coating that lasts four to six
weeks, but the whole process is guaranteed not to scratch.
The complete range of products enables a full detail inside and out including
leather treatment, bumper renovation and scratch removal. To ensure long lasting
protection of your car, Ecowash Mobile has also just introduced new protection
options for paint, fabric and carpet or leather.
A variety of services are on offer, from a basic waterless wash and polish right
through to a full detail called an Extreme Ecowash, to suit individual car
owners, through to car dealers, smash repairers and corporate fleets.
