What You'll Get
Washing a car by hand is the most convenient path to cleanliness, eliminating the time, energy, and experimental gyrocopter needed to seed stormclouds with soap flakes. Enjoy an earthbound scrub with today’s Groupon to Rave Waves Washing & Detailing in Fox Lake. Choose between the following options:
• For $15, you get three hand car washes (up to a $75 value).
• For $65, you get an express detail (up to a $125 value) and clay-bar treatment (up to a $75 value; up to a $200 total value).
Rave Waves treats horseless chariots to the gentle hands-on detailing services they deserve after daily stompings by lead feet and brake-happy hooves. The 20-minute hand washes commence by unleashing a battalion of bubbles on rims and running boards, soaping side panels, and swatting cherry-pie filling off the hood. Rave Waves uses two wash buckets, one for the top of the vehicle and the other for its lower regions, to ensure that dirt and tire grime from below keep off the paint above. Once lathered and showered, autos roll over for belly rubs from a soft chamois cloth that hoards every drop of moisture as if it were still living with its cactus grandparents in Arizona. As a final touch, tires dress up in shiny new coats to flirt with the highway asphalt on the way home. While not covered under today's Groupon, an interior vacuuming and wipedown is available with each wash for an extra $10.
Three-hour express detail services delve further into car crannies, dusting dashboards and wiping noseprints off the windows before taking a vacuum to the jelly-daubed crumbs of backseat donut crime scenes. Clay bars slide over surfaces to snag tiny impurities, deep-cleaning exteriors to prepare them for a waxy finish. Collinite Paste Fleetwax 885 seals and shines exterior surfaces to protect against weather-related hazards such as cicada rain and speed-related windburn.
