The advent of the car wash hastened the obsolescence of the chariot, whose drivers responded poorly to giant scrubbers and hot-wax treatments. Clean up your modern ride to work with today’s Groupon: for $28, you get two Ultimate washes with a wheel shine and hand detail at Dave’s Auto Spa (a $59.98 value).
Dave’s Auto Spa grooms horseless carriages with the speedy efficiency of automated washers and the meticulous finesse of human hand finishing, recycling more than 75% of the water used in the process. Visiting vehicles undergoing an Ultimate wash (a $24.99 value/wash) are scrubbed to a pristine sheen, buffed with triple-foam polish, and zapped by germ-irradiating thoughts about Mercurochrome. Spic-and-span specialists then thoroughly vacuum interiors and wipe down dashboards and consoles sullied by sneezes and footprint smudges. An underbody wash with rust inhibitor cleanses an auto’s unmentionables, a coat of sealer wax shields surfaces from moisture and ultraviolet rays, and Rain-X is applied to wheels and tires. After the full-body cleansing and gentle hand drying, spent spinners enjoy a revitalizing wheel shine and hand detail ($5 each) before motorists drive off to plunge their freshly cleaned cars into the nearest cloud of dust.
