Without car washes, the only way to clean your car's hard-to-reach areas would be to shower with it. Avoid instigating scandal with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get three car washes at one of The Car Wash's three area locations (a $30 value).
At The Car Wash, cars begin their rejuvenating journey through an automated flurry of brushes, spray hoses, and dryers with a gunk-loosening presoak, which tees up dirt for the ensuing wheel and side blasters to power-wash it away. The undercarriage cleaner carts away mud cakes to a local bakery, and the bug sprayer sweeps windshields free of built-up splatter. A combination high-pressure rinse and spot-free rinse splash off foam before the tornado blow-dry. A final wax coat buffers paint to a high shine, attracting envious stares and mirror-seeking narcissists.
