Washé Debuts New Features of Smartphone App that Cleans Cars Anywhere at SEMA

BOCA RATON, Fla. (October 19, 2016) – When the SEMA show opens its doors on November 1st, there will be cars galore, but at the top of every auto aficionado’s list is keeping those cars clean and shiny. Washé, the “app that cleans your car” will be debuting its upgraded features at Booth #51215 in the Performance Pavilion of the Las Vegas Convention Center (location #16 on the map below). Booth visitors can experience virtual Washé car washes during regular show hours.

Washé is already a huge hit in Florida and Los Angeles, where car owners keep their vehicles clean without the inconvenience of waiting in line for a car wash. The app brings the car wash to consumers at the tap of a touchscreen. Washé is the first on-demand mobile application that connects car owners with mobile car washers. The app has already gained momentum with thousands of users since launching earlier this year. Plans for continued coast-to-coast expansion are underway.


Bishop Innovations introduced its first automotive product at the 2015 SEMA show. HOZEEZ was developed by our father/daughter team of Bob and Jen after Jen got tired of having the hose get stuck under the tires while washing her car. Her aggravation inspired a solution that eliminates that problem. HOZEEZ is unlike any other. Designed by an Engineer who is also an enthusiast, HOZEEZ is simple, effective, and durable. HOZEEZ allows you to drag the hose around the car without it getting stuck. Knots or kinks in the hose slide right along our patent-pending design. No careful placement is needed – just drop it on the ground and kick it under the tire. The hose sliding around actually pulls HOZEEZ tighter under the tire, instead of dislodging it like previously tried (and mostly abandoned) products. Just toss it in your wash bucket for storage when you’re done. If you forget it’s on the ground and accidently drive over it, no problem!
