Unfortunately, because I live in Glendale, I can't help with the Westside, but what I discovered is that some of the gas stations like Chevron have the Drive-thru car washes attached to them. If you carry cash, then you can even pay for the wash without getting out of the car. I've discovered one in both Glendale and Burbank and yes they are sanity savers! But also beware that for little ones they are sometimes scary! My daughter would get hysterical when she'd see those huge brushes coming at her, spraying water and soap everywhere. Also, if you haven't discovered the drive-thru CVS pharmacy that's a huge time saver as well. I've had to sit in line at CVS for 15 minutes or longer sometimes but the fact that the kids are strapped into their carseats and entertained by the music, DVD, whatever is so much better than standing in line in the store and trying to watch the kids too.
