Robots are good for many things, including freaking out dogs and launching war on mankind, but they often lack the gentleness of a human touch. Rather than having bitter robots wash your car at a gas station, today's Groupon gets your ride the luxurious hand washing it deserves. For $39, you get a platinum package (an $85 value) at H2O Hand Car Wash and Detail. Select from H2O's three area-locations:
- South Lamar Boulevard
- Brodie Lane
- West Slaughter Lane
H2O washes each vehicle by hand with wool mitts before lovingly drying it with chamois cloths. The platinum package thoroughly de-cruds your gas-chariot's exterior in this manner, and includes a wheel cleaning and tire dressing. H2O's technicians will go through the interior with a high-power vacuum, sucking any caked mud, taco wrappers, or alien queens out your car's airlock and into outer space. They'll also clean and dust the dashboard, door, console, and steering column, as well as return your windows to a spotless, see-through sheen.
Though it no longer has a gladiator pit, H2O Hand Car Wash and Detail keeps waiting customers entertained with free Wi-Fi and cable TV, as well as a kids' area, vending machines, and video games. Cars are usually in and out in about 30 minutes, so you'll have just enough time to top your high score at Tetris or get your foot stuck in the vending machine before your glittering, glowing ride is ready for its one-car victory parade through town.
Genie Car Wash and H2O Hand Car Wash
H2O Car Wash and Detail's staff keeps cars in showroom condition with an emphasis on attentiveness and high-quality products. Meticulous hand washes are the team members' hallmark, and they perform each scrub down with soft, wool mitts instead of relying on machines or enormous carnival dunk tanks. The technicians rid interior and exterior dirt with a suite of washing and detailing services that leaves finishes glowing and interior fabrics looking freshly laundered. While the team does its work, motorists stay entertained in a lounge furnished with free WiFi and cable TV, and a kids' play area complete with video games works even better than hiring the GPS navigator to babysit.
