It is important to routinely groom your car—otherwise, it will grow an unsightly beard that will tickle your cheeks when you kiss it good night. Shave off soot and give your ride a much-needed lathering with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of car washes at Chevron at Hunters Crossing, on NW 43rd Street.
Chevron not only gasses up grownup go-karts, but also buffs out and shines up fuel-injected four wheelers with the Ryko FoamBrite car-wash system. Customers can bring in their mucky motorcar for a deluxe wash ($5) that includes the FoamBrite wash and foam bath, giving the auto a lively spray down that disintegrates dirt and grime and erases the clever limericks left in dusty verse on the rear windshield. Next, a spot-free rinse and drive-thru dry eradicate blemishes and leave customers' cars glistening, like a freshly lacquered sunbeam. With the premium wash ($7), road huggers receive the same treatment, plus an underbelly scrub and poly sealant. The Works wash ($9) adds a prewash and triple-foam shampoo to the foamy fusion, bringing out the true richness and luster of the auto's epidermis. Additionally, wheels are rubbed to a glossy sheen before road warriors are released to prowl the asphalt jungle.
