  • Southland Auto Wash 11/30/2011
    In 1950, a man named Ernest Ellis started a car wash in Grand Rapids. There were no motorized brushes or automated sprays back then; instead, cars would drive through the building as staffers positioned along the route used steam guns, wash tanks, and hand mitts to wipe away dirt and Dewey for President fliers from automotive exteriors. After a name change, a panoply of new locations, and many upgrades to what was often the most cutting-edge wash technology in the country, today's Southland Auto Wash maintains its high-tech approach to cleaning with automated wash tunnels, in-depth detailing, and luxurious extras including its own signature tire protectant. This passion for meticulous care, along with the wash's extensive water-conservation projects, earned the sudsatorium a nod as Grand Rapids Magazine's Best Car Wash for more than 14 years straight.

  • Joymar Car Wash
    With a quarter century of experience under its soap-sudded belt, Joymar's automatic car washes guide cars toward a cleaner way of living with an array of treatments. The Super Wash begins with a high-powered wash aimed at cleaning salt and grime from the undercarriage, known for bearing the tenderest cuts of car meat. The body is then treated with a protective conditioner that's triple the strength of the wash's regular wax. The application of rust inhibitor prevents unsightly oxidation, while a fortified clear coat sealer conceals the car in a cocoon of shine and wards off environmental elements that dull paint finish. Finally, 10 touchless, hot-air blowers collectively burst with 750 cubic feet of air per second, in order to dry nearly every drop of water, sans fingerprints and smudges. During colder months, a 960,000 BTU flame heater is used to banish drops of water from the kingdom of the car before they can stage an icy coup d'etat.
