North Shore Auto Spa's experienced staff cleanses vehicles of all makes and models from the inside out with five thorough detail packages and six styles of car wash. While drivers await their freshened rides, they retire to an indoor waiting area that flows with complimentary coffee and cappuccino. Younger passengers can pass the time with a host of available games or by practicing thumb-wrestling submissions on their nondominant hand.
Grand Prix Car Wash transforms the dirtiest of sedans, SUVs, and convertibles into pristine and well-waxed chariots. Their speedy automated soft-cloth wash banishes the lingering traces of rain, road dirt, or rock salt, and can be complemented with à la carte detailing services such as Scotchgarding or clay-bar treatment. Many of Grand Prix's car-wash packages also carry 24-hour or five-day guarantees, allowing drivers to return for an exterior car wash and hand-dry if they should get caught in a storm or city-wide food fight after their visit.
Bottles of Meguiar's, Rain-X, Black Magic, and Nu Finish line the work bays at Car Pretty, where experienced detailers revamp rides with detailing and hand-wash services. Despite their impressive product arsenal, their supplies come second to their technique; using clay bars, detailers meticulously remove tiny scratches and imperfections from paint, taking care to evict all bird stains and hood-ornament birds' nests. They also take advantage of specially designed Tornador equipment that dislodges embedded dirt from all interior surfaces. While the detailers unleash their cleansing fury on sullied surfaces, guests can lounge in the shop's waiting room.
Kathes Car Wash cleanses cars and trucks with a touch-free cleaning system. The washing mechanism uses gentle soaps and water that reach into every nook and cranny to flush out dirt and grease and leave the vehicle free of marks and scratches. To that end, the team performs a wide range of services, such as cleaning and polishing exterior chrome and trim and applying Armor All to tires and bumpers. It even shampoos carpets, mats, seats, doors, and poodles.
The tidy technicians at Norm's revamp sullied automobiles using alkaline-free shampoos and lubricating oils and conditioners to lock in vehicular luster. During each full-service car wash, digits don gentle microfiber chenille hand-washing mitts to bathe and dry auto exteriors, using rubber-tipped sprayers and air guns to target every nook, cranny, and cruddy Dukakis-Bentsen bumper sticker. Glass gleams after attendants cleanse windows inside and out, and vacuums scour interiors, suctioning upholstery, floors, and mats to slurp up dirt and debris. Trunks may also be vacuumed, and tires may be dressed in the latest wheel-based fashions upon request.
