Getting your vehicle cleaned at the car wash uses less water than hosing it down at home and less gas than driving it into a river. Combat grime efficiently with today's Groupon: for $18, you get three First Class car washes at Moon Flight Car and Dog Wash in Moon Township (a $36 value).
Moon Flight Car and Dog Wash's automated wash tunnels wrestle dirt from car exteriors during five-minute gentle-touch or no-touch washes performed 24 hours a day. During each First Class wash, an initial shock of soap erases smears and impromptu cursive lessons as a high-pressure cleansing and spot-free rinse administer the first round of decontamination. Cars progress through the dryer, which seals a layer of clear-coat protectant against the shell before a row of rising geysers flushes out grease and road grime from the undercarriage. A second lather of soap, along with triple foam and hub-scrub wheel cleaner, clings to the car, absorbing dirt before a high-pressure wash blasts away bubbles. Before driving away, cars snuggle into a coat of premium vehicle protectant, which protects the glowing paint from being burnt by the sun or goosed by the moon.
A drive-through window at Moon Flight Car and Dog Wash also doles out cups of Kiva Han coffee, pastries, and cigarettes during the following hours of operation. Alongside the car wash, a self-serve 24-hour dog wash preps pooches for the indoors with shampoo, conditioner, hair dryers, and lessons in Victorian table-setting etiquette.
Moon Flight Car Wash and Coffee
Though Moon Flight Car Wash and Coffee might seem like an unusual assemblage of businesses, its mission is clear: to offer clients fast, efficient services that don’t require them to leave their vehicles. Customers can cruise through an automated car wash, pick out their favorite drinks and treats from a drive-thru café menu, and finally have that car-horn honk-off they’ve always been meaning to do. For night owls, Moon Flight's self-serve washes are open 24 hours a day, and the coffee shop serves Kiva Han Coffee and Enrico Biscotti starting in the early hours of the morning.
Pets also can receive a cleaning in one of Moon Flight’s self-service dog-wash rooms, which are stocked with two shampoo formulas, skunk-odor remover, conditioner, and a blow dryer. Left smelling fresher than a rose auditioning for the lead role in a bouquet, well-behaved dogs can trot over to the drive-thru window to receive a free treat.
