Once you punch in your code, and the car in front of you is finished, the main door opens and you drive in.
The sprayers come on and these huge beams with the sprayer holes move side to side, under and over your car....with very high pressured water spraying the dirt right off.
This is the water being sprayed on the windshield. This process takes about two minutes.
Then once this is over, you drive very slowly out towards the exit where these huge dryers overhead blast hot air on the car to dry it. This dryer is a huge version of the ones you see in the bathrooms of hotels these days, for drying your hands. The picture below is of the dryers overhead.
The exit door opens and you come out, noticing right away how clean the windshield is.

Here is our car after the wash..notice how clean the tires are!! We got out of the car and said, 'WOW!' because it looked so good. It was such a mess before since we didn't clean the car for ages. (we kept hoping it would rain!) Then we went around and looked at the other side...OOPS..there was mud dripping down the entire right side of the car and the back of the read view mirrors were still filthy. So my husband took the car back, got a free car wash and came back home with a car that was now clean on BOTH sides. This seemed to be a one off...as the guy at the car wash said he would put in a complaint to the company that something was obviously faulty.
The kids wanted to go again, as if it was some ride in Disneyland...but for the time being....we will wait until the next time we feel like it and until then either wait for it to rain..or wash it ourselves!!
