It's A Wash is the car wash in Beach City owned and run by Greg Universe.[1] It was first seen in "Laser Light Cannon".


It's A Wash is a car wash owned by Greg, Steven's father. This is presumably where Greg lives in his van as it is almost always seen there. How and when he acquired it has of yet not been revealed.


It's A Wash makes regular, but brief appearances in the show, much like Big Donut:

"Laser Light Cannon"

It's A Wash was first seen/revealed in this episode, when Steven asks Greg if he knows the whereabouts of Rose's titular Laser Light Cannon.

"Cat Fingers"

It is seen again when Steven is taking a full cat form. They decide to rinse the cats off using the wash.

"Rose's Room"

A recreated version of the car wash appears in the titular Rose's Room (along with the rest of Beach City).

"Steven and the Stevens"

The car wash makes an appearance as Steven is going to look for his father in order to rehearse for Beach-A-Palooza. Due to Steven's distraction, as well as a miscommunication between Greg and Yellowtail, it is partially demolished and set ablaze.

"House Guest"

The Crystal Gems visit the car wash in where Pearl repairs Greg's Van, and then visit it again later as he is reunited with his beloved vehicle.

"Watermelon Steven"

The episode begins at the car wash. Greg and Steven are eating watermelons and the seeds began growing into Watermelon Stevens the next day.

"Winter Forecast"

The car wash is featured as Steven and Connie trick Greg into dressing up to spend more time together. The time lapse showing his different outfits is long enough for them to build a snowman.

"Shirt Club"

Greg offers guitar lessons and has Steven hand out flyers. At the car wash, he sits with his guitar ready to teach any newcomers.

"We Need to Talk"

The episode opens with Greg showing Connie and Steven his vinyl collection, and later on he tells them the story of how he learned about Gem Fusion in his van outside the car wash.
