Dirty cars can pull up to any of Full Circle Autowash’s five locations for a full interior or exterior restoration. An automated wash tunnel doles out four car-wash packages, from a simple exterior wash and interior vacuum to the Platinum treatment, which includes sealer wax, interior-vinyl protection, and leather conditioning. Meanwhile, carnauba wax and clay bars give rides a deeper clean during interior and exterior detailing packages. In addition to sprucing up autos, the Full Circle team also arranges for windshield repairs, installs Solar Gard window film, and replaces old oil with fresh standard or high-mileage synthetic blends. While the team services cars, customers can head to the gift shop to get a snack or pick up a greeting card for their car.
Fast washes, friendly service, and eco-friendly initiatives converge at Cobblestone Auto Spa. Instead of letting sudsy water seep back into the environment, Cobblestone Auto Spa drains it into a sewage system that strips it of any toxins before it's re-released. Precise computer controllers allow the spa's mechanical washing system to cleanse rides with less water and electricity, and Cobblestone's precise staffers man onsite detailing, express-lube, and windshield-repair centers. Multiple locations further convenience customers when paired with unlimited wash plans, which bedeck windshields with a radio-frequency identification sticker that automatically activates the car wash and any chosen upgrades such as wax protection or an underbelly tickle.
Formerly, Rip Curl Washes, at Ocean Blue Car Wash, gentle cleaning fabrics from Neoglide and MicroClean graze the sides of a car's metal exterior. These fabrics hold no water, dirt, or grit, and are used with biodegradable and nontoxic cleaning products. Cars can roll in for three-minute, ride-through express washes or stick around for the longer full-service sessions. Ocean Blue Car Wash offers full detailing and headlight restoration, and recycles 90 percent of the 12 gallons of water it uses during washes. While waiting, guests put their feet up inside, nibbling on complimentary popcorn, watching TV, or using the Internet to research the great Sponge Wars of the 1920s.
Each Francis and Sons Car Wash facility features skilled staffers who cleanse vehicles with biodegradable solutions and perform vehicle maintenance like caruba waxes and vinyl conditioning. Washes, which range from basic rinses to complete interior and exterior makeovers, enlist spacious wash tunnels and soft cloths to scour paint, and hands wrapped in towels and feet gripping blow-dryers to dispel moisture. The multifarious auto stop provides detailing, repair, and oil-change services at the hands of certified auto technicians who also tint windows and butterfly-kiss rearview mirrors for good luck.
When slowly inching toward the enormous porthole of Clean Freak Car Wash's façade, drivers may think they’re about to enter an oversized washing machine. Once at the entrance, a member of the Clean Freak staff ushers them into a glowing blue tunnel. Inside, a conveyor belt propels vehicles through multiple stations such as a foam wash and spot-free rinse. For an additional fee, the staff shines tires, throws in an air freshener, and wraps the car in a giant robe.
