The Ultimate Wash starts with a quick high-pressure pre-spray that loosens dust's death grip on your road-ship's hull, followed by a thorough wheel cleaning and an underbody blast that scrubs the car's seldom-seen tummy. While you're playing an intense game of racquetball inside your car, Classy Chassis will buff the car's exterior and reveal its natural shine with a tri-color polish process. As a final nicety before the rinse and dry, the car wash will apply a 30-day sealant with rain repel—the next best thing to attaching an RV-sized umbrella to the roof.
The automotive remix at the Puyallup dealership begins as the car-cleaning experts harness the soothing power of steam to thoroughly flush your hard-worked engine, carpets, seats, and headliner clean of dirt, dust, and doughnut crumbs. While a specially trained machine buffs the car's exterior, the clean team will swipe and wipe your auto's interior surfaces, including vinyl and leather. During this time, door jambs are degunked, the trunk is cleansed (including a steam cleaning of soiled carpets, if needed), and tires are scrubbed until they are the brightest shade of black. The total-body workout winds down with a waxing of your auto's exterior and a sepia-toned snapshot of the beautified buggy for scrapbooking posterity.

Though an authorized Honda dealership and service center, Jay Lee’s Honda of Sumner is staffed by certified professionals who specialize in selling, maintaining, and cleaning cars of any make and model. With a silver detail package ($89.95), driving machines from every car subculture are cleansed of layers of gas mileage-dampening ectoplasm and restored to their state of original purification as careful cleaners minutely attend to each vehicle's exoskeleton—washing, drying, and waxing it by hand. Windows are wiped down inside and out, tires are scrubbed and dressed, and the carpets and seats are vacuumed down with the impeccable attention of an elephant cracking peanuts. Tires, meanwhile, are cleaned and dressed in adorable sailor suits. Motorists who prefer a ceremonial car bath that involves fewer semi-precious metals and more valuable gems can opt for the diamond car wash ($29.95) instead, which includes a hand wash and dry, an interior vacuum, a window cleaning, and a Blue Coral express wax, plus Rain-X for the windshield and Black Magic car care product for turning the tires into licorice candy.
