Going to a car wash is safer than using white-out on windshield smudges or parallel parking between two waterfalls. Opt for a less risky wash with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a $40 car-wash card at Gator Wash in West Jordan.
Gator Wash's automated wash tunnel launders cars with high-pressure rinses and glossy treatments in one of three separate packages. The Baby Gator wash ($5) begins with a two-step pre-soak to loosen hardened dirt, grease, and trucker slang clogged inside CB radios before six high-pressure rinses reveal the shiny shell and wheel brighteners groom the rubber. An undercarriage rust inhibitor armors the undersides against oxidation during the Mama Gator wash ($8), and super sealant waxes cradle the clean veneer in a glossy, protective embrace. The Papa Gator wash ($10) piles on triple-foam polish and clear-coat protectants, glazing the shell with a reflective finish. After each wash, customers can brandish a free vacuum and scout their interior for loose debris, crumbs, or grass shed by dashboard hula dancers.
It takes 5–10 minutes to navigate through Gator Wash’s automated car-wash tunnel, depending on the type of tiered car wash chosen. Drivers choose from the Papa Gator, Mama Gator, and Baby Gator washes, all of which are built on a foundation of presoaking, high-pressure rinsing, heated drying, and strong, reptilian family values. Climbing up the tier, the car washes incorporate more intricate steps, such as triple-foam polishes and sealant waxes. As an added bonus, the facility offers complimentary vacuums for post-wash use.
