After WipeOut clear-coat shine adds a layer of sparkle, a spot-free rinse and power dry finish the exterior cleansing, and an air freshener and a free vacuuming ensure the insides stay fresh and especially sniffable. To guard against unexpected dust storms or pudding showers, the Ultimate wash includes a four-day guarantee to keep autos at the peak of their beauty.
