Prime Shine greets ragged road-huggers with a precursory prewash before leading them into an all-cloth cleaning stable where experienced technicians tenderly groom horseless buggies. A nonacidic wash works to dispense with gunk and grime from all auto parts, from besmirched bumpers to unclean underbellies. Next, motor wagons are sprayed with a cleansing, perfumed polish, then coated in an invisible shield of silicone to seal in a glossy luster. Rain-X protectant bonds to every inch of exterior to make cars impervious to water, bugs, and bug-shaped water balloons. Finally, after a 120-horsepower blow dry, mechanical beasts are ready to shake manes and roar away. The Protex car wash takes only about three minutes from start to finish, and customers can use self-service vacuums to put any finishing touches on rejuvenated rides.

The business has also expanded into the residential and commercial window sectors, thanks to a reputation for prompt service and doing the job right the first time.
Though the name implies speed, the staff of Quicki Kleen Car Wash is still thorough—all four of their wash and dry services are done by hand with additional touches that include waxing or interior vacuuming.
