But I never got that installed in my stick house. I do have it in my motorhome tho. What I did was get a hose adapter for the kitchen sink faucet and ran a hose out the window to the hose I used outside.

Or, using the water heater, buy a splitter that connects to an outside hose bibb to give you two outlets from the single house outlet - but, reverse it and attach one side to here house outlet and screw the hose from the water heater to the other side and a hose to wash the car with to the portion normally connected to the house.
Thinking about this idea though - the 2 outlet portions of the splitter - will there be enough room next to the house once the splitter is connected to the house to attach the hose from the water heater - could be a tight fit.

Zupper Premium Member here I had some plumbing work done on my laundry room, which basically backs up to the garage. I asked the guy to put in lines for a faucet into the garage.
He used an anti-freeze faucet actually "Model 29" from the link that Nate postedeven though it is in the attached garage, so not so likely to freeze.
Better safe than sorry though. You wouldn't want to connect to the drain cock on the water link. The cold water enters the tank at the bottom. You need to take the hot water out of the tank at the top. The only proper solution to plumb a new hot water line in or connect to a laundry sink, etc.
I know, detergents have been recommended for car washing. On the basis of overwhelming evidence, I totally disagree.
That same formulation is going to remove the wax from the car's finish and also any protective.
