Xpress Shine Car Wash’s automated tunnel is designed to re-create the gentle touch of human hands—if human hands were able to wash an entire car in three minutes. As vehicles start along the 125-foot conveyor, a biodegradable, high-lubricity foam begins to break up dirt and grime. The eco-friendly system then deploys recycled, low-pressure water and strategically placed cloth ribbons made from spa robes in place of brushing, blasting, or harsh chemicals. Optional surface protectants and a powerful air-dryer array finish the process, after which drivers can use free high-powered vacuums to get the inside as clean as the outside.
