Robots are good for many things, including freaking out dogs and launching war on humankind, but they often lack the gentleness of a human touch. Rather than having bitter robots washing your car at a gas station, this deal gets your ride the luxurious, eco-friendly hand washing it deserves: for $10, you get an eco-friendly, quickie car wash from Tri Kleen (up to a $25 value), a mobile cleaning service that services vehicles in the metro Milwaukee area.
Michael Glass spawned Tri Kleen in April 2010 as an Earth-friendly, nearly waterless alternative to callous chemicals and drive-through spin-cycle mechadroids. The 30- to 60-minute, hands-on, three-step dirt-destruction is good for any vehicle or buggy, whether it's compact ($15), mid-size ($15), a small SUV or minivan ($20), or a large SUV, pick-up truck, or van ($25). A Tri-Kleen cleaner will mist an organic, biodegradable soap onto your vehicle and use a microfiber towel to swab away muck from rims, windows, tires, and exhaust pipes. The process nabs smushed bugs and tar scum that automatic washers neglect. After a ceremonial wipe-down, the vehicle receives a polymer protectant (plus especially shiny protectant for all four tires and rims) that leaves your car with a holy sparkle for two to four weeks.
Make sure to call or email to make an appointment, which is subject to availability. Excessively dirty vehicles will incur additional costs.
