It's fortunate that mufflers make enough ruckus to drown out the profanities a car's grill constantly spews. Today's Groupon cleans a vehicle's foul jowls and uncouth interior for $15 with an executive wash for vehicles of any size (a $30–$40 value) at Soap Hand Car Wash. Soap's efficient water-softening technology hydrates a car and leaves a clean gleam without breaking the environment's heart or harming ironic bumper stickies.
The bath hands at Soap Hand Car Wash treat a ride to exceptionally gentle pampering with plush sponges and a careful dirt and grime exfoliation with lamb's-wool washing mitts. Soap claims that its hand car washes use one-sixth as much water as at-home washes, showing the true power of restrained and resourceful scrubbing. The executive wash delivers a thorough hand washing and drying, wheel cleaning, window shining, vacuuming, and tire dressing. The expert cleansmen pay special attention to a car's seats, console, dashboard, and door collection, and the process is completed by wiping away soap and water with feather-soft terry towels.
Patient car owners get to watch the professional servicing while enjoying free WiFi, complimentary coffee, cable television, or Soap's kids' area, where car owners' whippersnappers can run wild. Afterward, a clean ride becomes a confident ride that takes to the road's rock-hard surface with undeniable joie de vivre and more minty freshness than a pine forest full of teeth-brushing hybrids. Soap is open until 5:30 p.m. every day of the week.
- These guys pay special attention to the small details inside and outside the car, and are on top of their game! I can trust these guys with my car and I will definitely be back for more services on a weekly basis. – redsox2230, Citysearch
- It had been entirely too long since I'd given my car attention and I was very pleased with how clean they got the interior (convertibles get SO dirty during top-down season!), and every other inch of the car is sparkling clean. – mindy c., Ylpe
[[m:####Soap Hand Car Wash
The crew at Soap Hand Car Wash employs deep-nap mitts and a three-bucket technique that uses less than 10 gallons of water per wash. From Bucket 1 they pull amber-colored lamb's wool mitts and scrub wheels, tires, bumpers, undersides, and other gritty areas. Then they strap on white synthetic-wool mitts from Bucket 2 to clean the paint. Bucket 3 holds clean water, which the detailers use to rinse out the white mitts before dunking them in fresh soap and cleaning the paint a second time. Their special yellow sponges (made by Pinnacle) remove bugs without messing up the finish, and their terry towels (white for windows and painted surfaces; blue for everything else) leave all cars—including Maseratis, BMWs, Bentleys, and antique Mercedes-Benzes—dry and swirl-free.
Soap’s detailers build wonders on that three-bucket foundation. Dressings spiff up leather, tires, and wheels. Shampoo cleanses carpets. Orbital buffers add shine, and vacuums scoop up interior crumbs before they rot and conspire to poison the Garfield window cling. Wax upgrades are available, including handcrafted premium carnauba Lusso Oro wax and Pinnacle Souverän show-car wax.
While they wait, drivers can sip complimentary coffee or access free WiFi in the waiting room, which is equipped with flat-screen TVs. A kids' area entertains youngsters as they dream up ways to retain the lot price of their Matchbox cars.:m]]
