Lankershim Car Wash's auto-detailing package puts a twinkle back into the grille-smile of even the dingiest jalopy, be it an SUV, compact, or van. Seven days a week, Lankershim's buggy bathers begin each two- to four-hour scrub-down by hand waxing and buffing your human hauler until mud stains, avian expulsions, and embedded meteors seem like a fleeting bad dream. Team Lankershim will then shampoo your steel steed’s shell and string it onto a touristy necklace. Wheels are likewise steamed from top to bottom, while interiors and tires are dressed until their luster and dignity is restored.

Here, technicians use soap and elbow grease to scrub signs of wear from vehicle exteriors, following up with a coat of wax that keeps the cars looking like new. A typical scrub down ends with the hanging of an air freshener from the rearview mirror, a parting gift akin to a breath mint after a dinner of soap.
