Geocache Description:

This cache is part of the "Mr.Sparkle series". The final cache in the series is "There's Your Answer, Fish Bulb" (GC1BWD1).

Who is Mr. Sparkle?

In this series, we shall find out.

"For lucky best wash, use Mr. Sparkle."
  Mr. Sparkle was the subject of one episode of The Simpsons (In Marge We Trust, season 8, episode 22). While Homer and the kids were at the Springfield dump, they found a box of Japanese dishwashing detergent with a picture that looked a lot like Homer. So they contacted the company that made the detergent, and several weeks later they received a videotape of a Mr. Sparkle commercial. However, like many aspects of Japanese pop culture, the commercial did not make any sense to a western audience. To see the video for yourself, visit and search for "Mr. Sparkle".

Mr. Sparkle is Japanese, so we can sometimes find him at Japanese restuarants. We have identified a likely hangout for our target. We know that he is obsessed with cleanliness, so the laundry cleaner next door is sure to attract his attention. While you are gathering clues at this location, take a peek inside the restaurant to see if he is inside.

And remember... "For lucky best wash, use Mr. Sparkle."

NOTES: (1) The cache is located on private property, with permission of restaurant management. (2) There are no relevant clues located inside the restaurant.
