Wash-Works Car Wash's touchless-cleansing system purifies vehicles' exteriors in 180 seconds. During a car's three-minute vacation, powerful jets spray its exoskeletons with a triple-foam solution and wax to imbue a shine more luminous than the well-angled glare of a golden watch. A chassis bath meticulously tickles underbellies to remove built-up dirt, debris, and salt. After a rinsing, staffers release a pack of towels that cling to exteriors and soak up residual water with a thirst at once ferocious and gentle.
Spitzer Autoworld has been providing exemplary auto service for more than 100 years, having gotten its start selling and leasing Ford Model Ts. With today’s deal, soiled street wagons can ungrunge their outsides for the foreseeable future with a quintet of washes ($12 value each), during which their exteriors will be lovingly cleansed of accumulated grime and restored to factory-fresh spotlessness. Dirt-averse drivers can also opt for just one exterior clean but supplement it with the added perk of a standard oil change ($35 value) to re-lubricate crusty engines and inhibit corrosion, plus a 27-point auto inspection ($45 value) to ensure the car still has at least 27 parts.
The Polish Shop's techs cleanse cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans from the inside out with detailing services that adhere to a strict 25-point checklist. After transferring interiors' loose items and change into a protective bag, staffers spend three–four hours buffing light scratches, shampooing fabrics, degunking gas caps, and peeling away tar deposits. After freeing windows of built-up film and polishing mirrors to a reflective sheen, techs conclude with a final inspection, making sure that surfaces shine, insides sparkles, and bumper stickers feature correct punctuation.
The neon sign flashing OPEN outside of Ultimate Shine Auto Wash never shuts off. All day, every day, the full-service car wash welcomes cars into its arms for one of three washes. But it never actually touches them—lasers guide the 360-degree cleaning machine, adjusting its soapy almost-hug to conform to the shape of cars, trucks, and SUVs alike. Self-serve wash stations put the control in the hands of drivers, allowing them to spruce up vehicles with a foaming brush and discipline misbehaving hood ornaments with a high-pressure water wand.
