Like hair, a car's interior requires occasional shampooing to expunge dirt and stray hamburger wrappers. Beautify buggies with today's Groupon: for $27, you get an exterior wash and wax for a car at Lave Auto Royale in Gatineau (a $55 value). An SUV, truck, or minivan can be cleaned for an additional $10.
At Lave Auto Royale, vehicle virtuosos make over cars' exoskeletons with a meticulous series of washes, waxes, and wipe-downs. Car-cleaners use their skilled hands to soap and scrub exteriors before wiping them dry with absorbent chamois cloths or somersaulting chinchillas. Fresh cloths also run amuck throughout vehicles' door jambs, picking up dirt and grime along the way. The 60-minute service features a rim shine, a tire shine, and a hearty coat of hand-applied wax, which can imbue painted surfaces with a lustre comparable to the sun's lip-gloss. Groupon customers can also enjoy the unsolicited bonus of a 15% discount on other services from Lave Auto Royale.

Lave Auto Royale's attentive technicians only admit two cars per hour in order to give each auto their undivided attention. Armed with high-quality products, they wash and wax cars by hand, adding when necessary a clay-bar treatment, which is a nonabrasive method of removing stubborn debris such as tree sap and recalcitrant mules from cars' exteriors. Additionally, staff members have years of experience providing a host of special services, ranging from window tinting to the installation of bug deflectors, spoilers, decals, and racing stripes.
