For 15 years, Pearl Car Wash has pampered vehicular surfaces with an array of doting services performed by expert auto aestheticians. Entrust four-wheel friends to the indulgent care of a gold wash to buff up fiberglass panels and erase mud-drawn effigies of Mr. Rogers. This thorough treatment begins with a full-service hand wash, an underbody tickle session, and a stylish tire-and-exterior dressing. Then, car-care professionals step inside each auto to vacuum the carpets of pebbles and stray G.I. Joe limbs, scrub the dash and console, and desmudge the windows. Finally, every car is coated in a flattering rainbow wax and clear-coat protection.
