At Personal Touch Car Wash of Elwood, cars go from dirty to showroom shiny in less than five minutes. The team's automated wash tunnel has streamlined the process, combining scratch-free washes, waxes, and applications of water repellant in a single pass. As cars roll in, soft neoprene scrubbers sling soap all over, whirling and buffing away dirt and grime without scratching. Then, cars pass through a deluge of eerily beautiful golden foam?that's Simoniz Lava wax, which gets massaged into paint with a soft kneading curtain. Finally, Simoniz water repellant mists over windows and hoods before a 100-horsepower dryer blasts away water droplets and freeloading mopeds. But the team doesn't leave all the work to the machines. They also take up vacuums and cloths to clean carpets, upholstery, and instrument panels by hand.

For three decades, Commack Hand Car Wash and Detail Center has broadcast a single mission from its red-and-white awning: 100% Hand Car Wash. Cars roll into tunnels where technicians spray, suds, and wash exteriors, applying tire protectant or wax to maintain the squeakiness for weeks to come. On the inside, vacuums ferret out grime from every upholstered crevice, and dashboards breathe free of dust. Commack's treatment ensures that delicate auto bodies have no physical contact with machines, reducing flashbacks of when they had to sit on Mechagodzilla's knee at Christmas.
