Detailers run soft chamois cloths across car surfaces, soaking up droplets left by Car Bright Detail’s hand wash. The auto-detailing experts know which services are best rendered by hand, and which with the aid of machines. Mechanical buffing and polishing, for example, gives exteriors a glossy finish without having to get out at every light to spray the car with water, but wax gets applied by hand to ensure complete and even coverage.
Fresh-pressed juice invigorates the body—this is the mantra of Savasana Juice Company. The staff presses fruits, veggies, and herbs to not only taste good, but to be healthy as well. The bright-green Kalelypso Kooler blends kale, cucumbers, and celery with apples, lemon, and ginger, whereas the deep-red BeetleJuice is made from beets, oranges, and carrots. Once the juices are pressed, they're poured into 32-ounce glass jars and then sealed, enough to substitute for one meal during a cleanse.
