Clean Cars of Washington's staff whittles dirt-encrusted cars back down to their clean, fresh-from-the-factory state during 15–35-minute bath appointments. Technicians first wipe muck and mire from the frame's surface, scrubbing every inch until the vehicle looks as radiant as a just-married binary star. Next, they venture down to the tires to peel away layers of highway dust before dispatching vacuums to roam like K9 dogs through the interior, sniffing out crumbs, and leaving surfaces free of unwanted detritus. In an effort to dry off, exterior panels and trim snuggle up into the cleaners' soft chamois rags, which glide eloquently across the car leaving trails of shiny, postbath goose bumps in its wake.
