Like babies, cars are cursed with the inability to tell their owners when they are soiled, often resulting in peeling paint, rusty rims, and embarrassing rashes. Seek the intervention of a car-whisperer with today’s Groupon for Ducky’s Car Wash. Choose one of two options:
- $13 for a deluxe car wash (a $21.99 value)
- $125 for a complete auto detailing (up to a $260 value)
Ducky’s services cover two-door vehicles and four-door automobiles. Owners, renters, and thieves of mini-vans, SUVs, vans, and pickups who wish to ride on in shiny fashion can use a Groupon and pay the difference.
Ducky’s deluxe wash is a 30-minute cleansing that de-grimes buggies from top to tire. In addition to being washed, your chariot will have its underbelly hosed, paint cleaned and protected, wheels brightened, tires glossed, exterior rubber treated, and rust driven back into its burrows. An air freshener is added to banish smells of stale peanut butter and attract Pat Boone.
If you can’t remember the last time protons passed successfully through your wheelmobile’s windshield, it might be best to opt for the complete auto detailing. Drop off your ride and let it rove through a full-service wash before it idles delightedly during a scouring and scrubbing more detailed than William Howard Taft’s instructions for mending the White House garden hose. All oxidation, sap, tar, road oils, and squid ink will be removed, and the exterior chrome and paint will be polished to a high luster. Ducky’s polymer paint sealant will keep the prow gleaming so brightly it blinds the sun. Exterior and interior rubber, plastic, and vinyl will be dressed up and tires slicked back with protectant. Inside the cab, Ducky’s grime annihilators will shampoo carpeting, floor mats, and upholstery; scrub down the console, dash, visors, and door panels; condition leather seats and accents; clean and vacuum the junk in the trunk; wipe and clean door jambs; and polish windows to a crystalline clarity.

Ducky's Car Wash
Surprisingly enough, it's not how a car looks that will betray whether or not it needs to be waxed—it's how it sounds. If it squeaks when you run a clean, dry terry cloth over the hood, that's a sure sign it needs a fresh coat. This is the kind of expert advice the Ducky's Car Wash team has accrued across 20 years spent caring for vehicles all around San Francisco. And it's not just cars they care for, they also keep an eye out for the environment by reclaiming, filtering, and reusing around 80% of their water. And, they also collect all the runoff from the biodegradable cleaners and waxes they use into their own underground tanks for eco-friendly disposal.
Further more, those cleaners and waxes are measured precisely using computerized equipment, a process designed to minimize waste during Ducky's soft-cloth washes. Technicians also perform an extensive selection of detailing services, including conditioning leather seats, removing oxidation from exteriors, and shampooing carpets, floor mats, and back seat bear skin rugs.
