Like babies, cars are cursed with the inability to tell their owners when they are soiled, which often results in peeling paint, rusty rims, and embarrassing rashes. Seek the intervention of a car whisperer with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a full interior and exterior detail at The Smart Car Wash in Woodbridge, Virginia (a $239.98 value).

A $15 upcharge will be required for vehicles containing a third row of seats.

The Smart Car Wash's intelligent auto scrubbers use eco-friendly technologies to clean vehicles without transposing too much grime onto the earth or into the atmosphere. Full-detail packages begin with the Platinum wash, during which a water-recycling system developed by the Navy collaborates with laser-guided devices to surgically remove detritus from wheeled bodies and conserve the fluid that makes bathing and fog possible. The treatment also pampers exteriors with a triple-foam polish, Lustrashield sealant, an undercarriage washing, and a tire treatment. A hand wax, rim polish, and tailpipe polish add extra sheen as brake dust is banished from the vehicle's lower regions. Technicians then turn inward for an interior renovation, vacuuming up small stowaways and shampooing away smells and minor stains from every fabric fiber before removing grime hidden beneath paneling. After a deionization and disinfection, as well as a clay-bar treatment and paint-restoration compound, if needed, shoo away unseen contaminants from autos, cars receive a parting shot of parting fragrance chosen by their owners or picked on their own using turn signals and an understanding of basic Morse code.

The Smart Car Wash collects more than 100,000 gallons of rainwater a year on its slanted roof, then stores it and purifies it to drinking-water quality. Each wash uses about 40 gallons of water, as opposed to 140 gallons for the average home driveway wash, and the building, which is made from 20% recycled material, gets its electricity from offsite wind turbines.

The Smart Car Wash

When The Smart Car Wash’s proprietors began their business, they did not simply want to clean cars, but also wanted to incorporate [green technology ( into their business out of respect for the environment. A LEED-certified facility, the wash is powered entirely by electricity from off-site wind turbines and all of its water is recycled in a water recycling plant. Additionally, techs use biodegradable chemicals to rid vehicles of dirt and grime and clear off suds with a spot-free rinse before adding [deluxe touches]( such as a triple foam polish and dash dressing. Along with performing washes seven days a week, the crew spruces up vehicles with [detailing services]( including carpet cleaning, interior deodorizing, and revitalizing auto bodies with waxing and synthetic paint sealant.
