Mendocino Avenue Car Wash & Detail Center
For more than 21 years, Mendocino Avenue Car Wash & Detail Center has been fortifying vehicles against exterior damage. Soft-cloth machines wash away rain stains and dirt before technicians wipe down exteriors by hand or leave the work to the automated rotations of a hand buffer, either way, ending up with a new car smell air-freshener. Open 7 days a week, Mendocino, offers full detail packages including coats of carnuba wax, upholstery deep cleaning, and interior vinyl and leather conditioning. While their rides get gussied, drivers can peruse the gift shop's tiny figurines, model cars, dolls, and stuffed animals, as well as magnetic-therapy bracelets that will help you snag a date with a cute young paper clip.
