Cleaning the car is a tedious chore that—much like seeing the love of your life devour an entire wedding cake—can actually dampen your ardor for it. Today’s Groupon lets drivers retain a loving relationship with their rides: for $18, you get a booklet of three Signature car washes at Mr. Magic Car Wash (a $36 value, including tax). Today's Groupon must be redeemed at the Mount Lebanon Boulevard location in exchange for the booklet by October 20, 2011, which may be used at all five Pittsburgh-area locations and never expires.
For more than 50 years, Mr. Magic’s adroit technicians have been restoring beauty to seasonally affected autos. Each Signature wash starts with a basic wash, which utilizes 100% fresh water and a special wash solution, then comes to a shimmering conclusion with a wheel-brightener application, a brake-dust removal, an underbody flush, and a slick application of Magic Wrap clear-coat protectant. Fast and thorough, the wash takes care of all the essential areas without resorting to cliché shortcuts, such as idling down the beach during high tide.
Mr. Magic Car Wash
A business has to have something special to survive for more than half a century. For Mr. Magic Car Wash, perhaps that thing is a signature blend of nine cleaning solutions that work together to cut through tough road grease and leave vehicles with a glimmering luster. Or perhaps it’s the business's attention to detail, manifested in its soft-cloth hand washes. Either way Mr. Magic has not only survived the passing decades and the end of the DeLorean, it has thrived and expanded, now boasting five Pittsburgh-area locations. Even when sending cars through the automated car-wash tunnel for a quick rinse, Mr. Magic keeps auto owners' interests in mind, spraying fiberglass surfaces with only fresh water and drying them to a spot-free shine with hot air. Extra services, such as underbody flushes and interior and exterior detailing, help enhance each wash, and coats of Magic Repel surface protectant deflect new smudges and wizard spells.
