Cars are especially prone to rust in the winter, when the roads are covered in salt to encourage police horses to lick them clean. Steer your car clear of corrosives with this Groupon.
$20 for Three The Works Car Washes (Up to $54 Value)
In about 10 minutes, an automated express wash and undercarriage wash gently remove dirt and grime. A combination of rust inhibitor, Wheel Brite, and Simoniz DuraGlaze protects exteriors for up to 30 days, or about the time it takes to train a GPS system to call you "your Majesty."
Though ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers
At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
