Step 1: Presoak (Low Pressure)**
First select Presoak. Our car wash presoak is an alkaline product that works on tough road film, salt and winter road treatments. It loosens grime and makes the other car wash selections work more effectively. It’s great for cleaning wheels and tires, provided the wheel finish is tolerant of high ph chemicals.*
Step 2: High pressure soap**
Our high pressure foaming soap* helps blast away the dirt that is loosened by the presoak pass.It is not recommended to use high pressure on loose vehicle trim, aftermarket parts, decals and magnets.
Our high pressure soap is heated to boost cleaning power.
Hand-Washing Recommendations & Our Policy
The best way to avoid scratching your car’s paint is to avoid touching it with friction agents. Even soft microfiber towels can pick up small dirt particles, acting like sandpaper against the finish. We recommend acquiring a synthetic foam chamois for washing and a separate one for drying. This material can’t hold dirt and is less likely to cause scratches. Synthetic chamois are available at auto parts stores and retail stores. Our soap foams well and can be used on low pressure for hand washing. Tip: don’t squeeze the handle if you want low pressure soap and rinse the chamois well prior to using.
We don’t mind if you hand wash your car in our car wash bays as long as no other customers are waiting.
Step 3: Foaming Brush
Inspect the brush for debris before using. While we use the softest brushes available on the market, sometimes debris from other customers may be left behind in the bristles. We recommend rinsing the brush with high pressure rinse prior to use.
Turn the selection dial to foaming brush and verify thick foam with a shaving-cream consistency is coming out. Never use the brush on a dry car or without turning on the machine since scratches could result. Never dip the brush in foam left behind on the bay floor! It can pick up contaminants that will scratch the car’s paint.
Starting at the top and working your way down, gently scrub the vehicle, including wheels. Please don’t use the brush on greasy items or engines.
Note: We use an anti-freeze soap solution in winter, but there is a possibility that the brushes will freeze in subzero temperatures. We suggest checking the brush for frozen bristles before using when temperatures are below freezing.
Step 4: High pressure rinse**
Use high pressure rinse to spray the entire vehicle from top to bottom, making sure to rinse off all soap and polish residue. Our water is softened and is heated in the winter. If the water doesn’t feel warm right away, it may take a minute or two to reach the bay.
The wand can be used to spray underneath the vehicle and in wheel wells to flush salt and road treatments (spray undercarriage at your own risk after carefully following your car’s owners’ manual recommendations. We are not responsible for damage due to misuse of our wash equipment or chemicals.)
Step 5: Polish
Our gloss-enhancing polish is a special polymer surface protectant that provides excellent water beading and some water sheeting. While it doesn’t replace regular application of carnauba wax, we’re sure you’ll notice the sheen, gloss and smoothness as you’re drying the vehicle with a chamois. Applying polish each time you wash will help keep dirt and surface contaminants from penetrating the paint, making it easier to remove dirt the next time the vehicle is washed.
Important: clean thoroughly before applying polish for the best results, and ALWAYS rinse the polish off with high pressure rinse followed by spot free rinse.
Step 6: Spot free rinse (medium pressure)
Our spot free rinse is reverse-osmosis purified to remove minerals that cause spotting on your vehicle’s surface. The water is dispensed at a medium pressure. Start at the top of the vehicle and rinse all sides thoroughly. Make sure to flush the crevices, also. Regular rinse water tends to lay in hiding until you travel down the road, resulting in water streaks on your otherwise spot-free surface. Flushing crevices like the door cracks, mirrors, and other crevices with spot free rinse helps prevent streaking.
*Make sure to read your owner’s manual or other documentation regarding your car’s finish. Some flat finishes, enamels, or special coatings may not be compatible with high ph products. We are not responsible for damages caused to finishes that aren’t compatible.
**Every vehicle, no matter how new, will be difficult to get clean without proper maintenance of the paint. Applying a good carnauba wax at least once a year is recommended for best results, no matter what kind of car wash you select..
