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. Keep the passion alive with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a Protex car wash at Prime Shine (a $10 value). This Groupon is valid at all 13 locations, and you can buy up to three of today's deal.
Prime Shine greets ragged road-huggers with a precursory prewash before leading them into an all-cloth cleaning stable where experienced technicians tenderly groom horseless buggies. A nonacidic wash works to dispense with gunk and grime from all auto parts, from besmirched bumpers to unclean underbellies. Next, motor wagons are sprayed with a cleansing, perfumed polish, then coated in an invisible shield of silicone to seal in a glossy luster. Rain-X protectant bonds to vehicles, windows and all, to improve visibility and make cars impervious to water, bugs, and bug-shaped water balloons. Finally, after a 120-horsepower blow dry, mechanical beasts are ready to shake manes and roar away. The Protex car wash takes about three minutes from start to finish, and customers can use the self-service vacuums to put any finishing touches on rejuvenated rides.
