Like babies, cars are cursed with the inability to tell their owners when they are soiled, which often results in peeling paint, rusty rims, and embarrassing rashes. Seek the intervention of a car whisperer with today's Groupon: for $35, you get three Platinum car washes at The Smart Car Wash in Woodbridge (up to a $71.97 value).
The Smart Car Wash's intelligent auto scrubbers use eco-friendly technologies keep vehicles clean in cold weather without transposing too much wintry grime onto the earth or into the atmosphere. During the 15-minute Platinum wash, a water-recycling system developed by the Navy collaborates with laser-guided devices to surgically remove detritus from wheeled bodies and to conserve the fluid that makes bathing and fog possible. The treatment also pampers exteriors with a triple-foam polish, LustraShield sealant, an undercarriage washing, and a tire treatment.
The Smart Car Wash collects more than 100,000 gallons of rainwater a year on its slanted roof, stores it, and purifies it to drinking-water quality in a building made from 20% recycled material and powered by offsite wind turbines. Each wash uses about 40 gallons of water, as opposed to 140 gallons for the average home-driveway wash or 1,400 gallons for the average drive through a public aquarium.
Though The Smart Car Wash sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Smart Car Wash
When The Smart Car Wash’s proprietors began their business, they did not simply want to clean cars, but also wanted to incorporate [green technology (http://www.thesmartcarwash.com/category/8348/enviroment.htm) into their business out of respect for the environment.

Additionally, techs use biodegradable chemicals to rid vehicles of dirt and grime and clear off suds with a spot-free rinse before adding [deluxe touches](http://www.thesmartcarwash.com/category/8323/car-wash-menu.htm) such as a triple foam polish and dash dressing. Along with performing washes seven days a week, the crew spruces up vehicles with [detailing services](http://www.thesmartcarwash.com/category/8324/detailing-services.htm) including carpet cleaning, interior deodorizing, and revitalizing auto bodies with waxing and synthetic paint sealant.
