The technicians from Papishampoo Mobile Detailing save you the trip by scrubbing your car clean outside of your home or office, removing stains and streaks on the exteriors and interiors of sedans, vans, and SUVs. Their car washes include full-body washing, interior wipe downs, and tire dressing. Their details, meanwhile, are much more extensive?the exterior gets a full coat of clay bar, Premium Glaze polish, and carnauba wax, while the insides receive leather and vinyl conditioning, carpet and mat shampoos, and an air freshener. But they also focus on the finer details, such as consoles, door jambs, and even air vents, resulting in a car that's so spotless it looks as it did when it first learned to read stop signs.

In 1981, lifelong Greenwich residents Mark Curtis and Chris Fisher traded in their business suits for sudsy sponges when they purchased Greenwich Car Wash. 13 years later, they renamed their business Splash to coincide with an innovative idea developed by the duo: wash the cars by hand while also using a conveyor to keep them moving rather than trying to coax them forward with candy. That approach was a huge hit, and soon, Splash began spinning off into additional locations.
Today, more than 15 Splash locations are peppered across the East Coast. What started as a humble two-man operation has grown into a franchise that employs more than 500 people and washes more than a million cars per year. At each location, cars receive the ultimate in pampering thanks to a list of services that includes hand washes, express washes, detailings, and oil changes. Despite such impressive growth, though, Splash remains true to its community-driven roots, working with more than 400 charitable organizations on an annual basis.
