Sensha-Ya Hand Car Wash
Sensha-Ya Hand Car Wash may be a young business, but its staff already have the car-washing process down to a science. Vehicles of any size are ushered into a covered station, where technicians begin the cleansing process by hosing down tires and drenching exteriors in a presoak. From the floor, jet sprayers blast water along the undercarriage of the car, removing mud and grime.
Technicians soon jump in with delicate wool pads to hand-wash the exterior, while air guns uncover hidden dirt to vacuum away. They finish each wash with a leather chamois drying and an application of Japanese-imported polish and wax. To tackle tougher grime, such as road tar and tree sap, the team reaches for clay bars.
And while Sensha-ya's team takes car of any size vehicle—from sedans and station wagons to SUVs and parade floats shaped like H2 Hummers—drivers are encouraged to head into the waiting area where a cozy couch and complimentary coffee awaits.
