The Best car wash pampers transporters with a shine-restoring exterior wash and detailed interior de-gunking. Car caretakers ensure that carriages are cleaned from their hard exoskeletons to soft underbellies to mate-attracting rims before interior vacuuming and dusting removes all remnants of Cheerios explosions and land barnacles. Dashboard, console, door, and cup-holder conditioning returns auto interiors to a fresh-picked state, while Rain-X protectant seals vehicle exteriors against moisture, preventing rust, improving windshield visibility, and shielding them from the environment's pummeling fists. A tire shine matches rotating rubber to trendy patent-leather streets, and human handlers give cars a final soft-cloth rubdown, making sure all the essential oils get absorbed into their thick skins. Best of all, Sparkling Image offers a seven day guarantee: bring your car (and receipt) back within seven days of your service and they will wash and clean it again for free. A $2 surcharge applies to trucks and SUVs.
