It's fortunate that mufflers make enough ruckus to drown out the profanities a car's grill constantly spews. Soap up a vehicle's foul jowls and uncouth interior with today's deal: for $15, you get an executive wash at Soap Hand Car Wash on Richmond Avenue (up to a $40 value).
The bath hands at Soap will treat your chariot—be it car, mini-van, or monster truck—to an executive wash, which includes a thorough hand washing and drying, wheel cleaning, window shining, vacuuming, and tire dressing. The expert cleansperts use about one-sixth as much water as amateur at-home washes, and they pay special attention to a car's seats, console, dashboard, and door collection, wiping away lingering soap and water with feather-soft terry towels. Soap Hand Car Wash treats a ride to exceptionally gentle pampering with plush sponges and a careful dirt and grime exfoliation with lamb's-wool washing mitts.
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 seven days a week.

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]]
