Splash 'Em Out's team of professionals man an arsenal of mammoth 20- to 60-pound front-load washers that can handle up to six loads of laundry at a time. When clothes are washed clean, they're moved into extra-large dryers with high, medium, or no heat settings capable of handling anything from heavy-duty towels to delicate undergarments. For customers who prefer performing the wash themselves, Splash 'Em Out's four locations keep customers' minds off the wait with entertainment including cable TV, video games, WiFi, and a children's play area. Stained clothes get special attention from Splash 'Em Out's staff, who can remove remnants of smoke, soot, or water stains from damaged clothing and thoroughly clean horse blankets without riding the horse through a car wash.
Curves houses a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and cope with arthritis. Instead of guests fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches each exerciser's abilities. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, machines use push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Every thigh- or torso-transformer is equipped with the CurvesSmart personal-coaching system, which uses programmed information on weight, endurance level, and fitness goals to automatically calibrate the perfect challenge for individual bodies. The CurvesSmart system also delivers a postworkout rundown on the strength built and progress achieved during each session. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine-maneuvering and to squirt overheated guests with a Super Soaker.
Seven days a week, the partner laundromats hum with the whirring of high-efficiency washers and dryers. Boasting more than 30 years of business, the Chevy Chase location fields a skilled staff that erases blights from duds with 46 single, double, and triple-load washers and 28 dryers, and enables patrons to convert bills into coins with convenient onsite change machines. The laundromat purveys soap, bleach, and fabric softeners. The staff augments this shopping-while-washing experience by entertaining waiting guests with video games, complimentary WiFi, and—remarkably—a standup tanning bed, inside of which, naturally, is a comedian. Alternatively, the Suds 'N Duds location boasts advanced credit-card-operated machinery that washes loads of up to 90 pounds at a time in as little as 40 minutes and treats freshly bathed garments to a complimentary dry. The laundromats also grant customers a free dry with every wash and offer reward points, which—when saved up—can be exchanged for money to use on washing machines and drying machines.
In addition to self-service laundry, both locations offer same-day drop-off services. Their professional staff sorts, washes, and dries clothing using premium detergent and softeners before folding them into neat piles or intricate seersucker airplanes.
Clients at Southern Rays take control of their skin shades by using customizable UV- and sunless-tanning systems. During a spray-tanning session, patrons sashay into the Mystic Tan HD booth. Nozzles then spritz bodies in an even cloak of UV-free tanning solution, which contains green-tea extract, açaí, and the sun's jealous tears. Pelts can receive their painting at varying intensities depending upon individual preferences, and bodies emerge from the private bronzing chambers within a matter of minutes.
Rather than continuously boasting about being in business for more than 25 years, ABC Cleaning rolls up its sleeves and clocks in every day with the goal of impressing customers with the high-quality services that have kept it in business for so long. One or more staffers arrive at clients’ homes, depending on the cleaning job at hand or the size of the stuffed woolly mammoth that needs to be shampooed. They then spend the allotted appointment time dusting, mopping, vacuuming, and sanitizing bathrooms and kitchen countertops into a sparkling sheen.
Fusion Tanning bronzes even the blanchiest of epidermises with its premium equipment and wide variety of pigmenting methods. Sunned-skin seekers may take the month to bask and bathe in the generous glow of Fusion's Basic beds, which use ultraviolet-rich U's and V's to provide beach-worthy color. Choices of beds include the SunVision Elite or the FTS 7000, a 360-degree, standup tanning bed that features an 18 mph fan, ensuring gilding sessions stay as sweat-free as a weightlifting championship on Mars. All locations have the SunVision Elite, and only select locations sport the FTS 7000.
