From their three locations, the auto mavens at Platinum Car Wash & Oil employ advanced water-reclamation systems and power-conscious equipment during cleaning and maintenance services. The facility's full-service car-wash tunnels spray paint jobs with Simoniz soaps, waxes, and foams before staff members dab rides with microfiber towels. They continue hands-on touch during signature or 20-minute express detailing sessions that unfold as auto owners explore the waiting area's magazines, complimentary WiFi, or leather couch cushions.
Opposed to using recycled or reprocessed oils, the crew spurs pistons with Mobil oil and complimentary top-offs between services. They also help boost car with lube services, such as transmission drains, tire rotations, and VPS fuel-rail services that dislodge harmful debris and misplaced CDs from fuel- and air-intake systems.

Monroe Car Wash & Detail Center owner John Lilly doesn’t just preach honesty; he practices it. When customer Harold Heiney left his wallet at the car wash, he got a call from Lilly the very next morning. Upon picking up the billfold, a very grateful Heiney found its contents neatly enveloped and rubber banded, lying beside the soggy wallet.
Needless to say, Heiney became a vocal supporter of the car wash, and not just for its Simoniz-trained and certified detail technicians or 100-foot long, computer-controlled wash system. Also the model of integrity, they suds up each auto even if it’s forgotten to bring its rubber ducky, then banishes moisture with a 70 hp, touch-free air dryer before a technician towel dries the exterior by hand. In addition to protecting the environment with biodegradable products, Monroe goes green by recycling all its water—in fact, each wash requires 3 gallons of fresh water. Besides wash packages, customers can take advantage of express detail services or executive full service detail packages.

Shining autos since 1963, the team of associates at Russell Speeder's Car Wash attacks dirt and road debris with a timeless trio of soft-cloth scrubbers, meticulous cleaning, and specially calibrated solvents. After emerging from a shower of cascading water, cars fling open their doors and welcome three technicians ready to refurbish doors, seats, cup-holders, front rubber floor mats, air vents, backseat wine presses, and dashboards in less than 10 minutes using a German-engineered cleaning tool. Scrubbed window glass disappears from view, revealing beautified seats and refurbished mats. Once associates have finished their work, car owners can pry themselves from the comforts of a waiting room outfitted with a flat-screen television and an ironic-bumper-sticker decoder.
