At both of Ultimate Car Wash’s locations, grimy rides zip through the wash tunnel and appear on the other side looking fresh. Several wash options give customers a choice in their car's level of clean, and a crew of attendants is on duty to finish off each thorough scrubbing. A basic wash swiftly clears dirt from paint, and a more in-depth exterior wash uses high-pressure jets and a spot-free rinse to blast away deep-set grime and obliterate incriminating talon prints. Drivers can choose the rain-proof treatment for a roof-to-underbelly shower that ends with a helping of Rain-X wax, and the ultimate wash includes all the components of the rain-proof wash but adds Black Magic tire shine to the roster.
