Cleaning a car, like cleaning a conscience, requires impeccable discipline and the courage to admit that it was wrong to park inside a zoo’s bird terrarium. Leave this existential dilemma to the professionals with today’s Groupon to Auto Star Car Wash in Silver Spring. Choose from the following options:
- For $15, you get two super washes (a $29.98 value).
- For $49, you get a mini detail for a sedan (a $99 value).
- For $59, you get a mini detail for an SUV (a $125 value).
For more than a quarter-century, Auto Star Car Wash’s staff has transformed sullied rides into factory-fresh vehicles with services for both the interiors and exteriors. During each 10-minute super wash, the car is treated to a thorough cleansing of its exoskeleton and, similar to a diaper-changing procedure for the Tin Man, a rust-inhibitor is squirted onto the machine’s sensitive underbody. A car-wash clear coat protects painted surfaces, and rims get renewed luster in a wheel-brightening treatment. The mini detail one-ups the full-service car wash with a waxing performed by hand in which techs carefully rub in a reflective shine. Vacuums then embark on a search-and-suck mission inside cabins as staffers massage interior fabrics with shampoo, coat surfaces with Armor All, and make sure none of the radio’s preset stations is dialed into soundtracks of babies screaming.
AutoStar Car Wash
AutoStar Car Wash takes care of all your vehicle’s aesthetic needs with a range of washing, detailing, and accessory services. A full-service wash tunnel blasts away dirt, muck, and bugs during five wash packages, from the express to the ultimate, which includes an interior vacuuming and dashboard wipe down.
Rides can take advantage of more extensive cleaning with an express or full detail package, including hand waxing, clay-bar treatments, and paint sealant to lock in luster. Aside from restoring vehicular cleanliness, the AutoStar team removes hazy spots from headlights and patches up scratched surfaces. Expertly applied window films save interior upholstery from UV rays that can cause fading, and custom painted pinstripes ready cars for impromptu drag races or appearances in court.
