$25 for Three Big Kahuna Car Washes ($89.97 Value)
Each 25- to 30-minute Big Kahuna car wash begins with a soft-cloth car wash that includes an underbody wash, exterior sealer wax, and application of three types of foam polish and two types of clear-coat protectant. Technicians towel dry exteriors before vacuuming the interior, cleaning interior and exterior windows, and dusting the dash and console. Next, they apply cream conditioner to the dash, doors, and console, as well as a Blue Coral atomized wax treatment to exteriors. Each wash concludes with a choice of Ozium air freshener scent and an application of tire shine. See the website for a complete list of services.
Ocean Blue Car Wash
Formerly, Rip Curl Washes, at Ocean Blue Car Wash, gentle cleaning fabrics from Neoglide and MicroClean graze the sides of a car's metal exterior. These fabrics hold no water, dirt, or grit, and are used with biodegradable and nontoxic cleaning products. Cars can roll in for three-minute, ride-through express washes or stick around for the longer full-service sessions. Ocean Blue Car Wash offers full detailing and headlight restoration, and recycles 90 percent of the 12 gallons of water it uses during washes. While waiting, guests put their feet up inside, nibbling on complimentary popcorn, watching TV, or using the Internet to research the great Sponge Wars of the 1920s.
