Water thrives when under pressure, much like spelling-bee finalists and fast-food drive-thru operators at the Indy 500. Unleash pressurized power with today's Groupon: for $28, you get two car-wash packages at Dave's Auto Spa in Richmond and their newly remodeled Midlothian location (a $59.98 total value). Each car-wash package includes the following:
- An ultimate Wash (a $24.99 value)
- A wheel shine and hand detail (a $5 value)
Wielding soft cloths, foaming cleansers, and pressure washers, the staff at Dave's Auto Spa purifies and polishes vehicles while recycling more than 90% of the water used. Technicians kick-start the ultimate wash by smothering exteriors with soap and rubbing underbellies with a rust-inhibitor, then thoroughly rinsing and hand drying surfaces to make steel steeds shine brighter than a bald head covered in gold leaf. Skilled hands coat exoskeletons in triple-foam polish and sealer wax and then treat tires to a Rain-X treatment, which protects them from grime on the road and infestations of pesky brake dust.
Vacuums wriggle their muzzles throughout interiors to snuff up dirt, debris, and fossilized potato chips, as car-cleaners wipe down dashboards, consoles, and windows. The 30-minute service also includes Dave's Auto Spa's wheel-shine and hand-detail treatments, which can help cars achieve a level of cleanliness normally only achieved by driving through a waterfall laced with bleach.
Dave's Auto Spa
Dave's Auto Spa spruces up vehicles with a mixture of friction and touch-free techniques. Foaming cleansers and soft mitts team up with steady streams of water, 95% of which is reclaimed from previous rinses, to free rides from all manner of grime. Technicians add extras such as foam polish, spray wax, wheel cleaners, and underbody washes during the four signature wash packages and treat paint to Rain-X and leather to conditioners during detail appointments. Drivers can join Dave's Auto Spa's Red Carpet Club for benefits such as free washes, senior and military discounts, and a guarantee that cars will only be photographed on their good sides.
