How to Choose Which Express Wash to Buy

February 16, 2022

When you go to an Express car wash in Arizona or California, you’re faced with a lot of choices. Should you get a basic wash? Want to add wax, or maybe ceramic sealant?

That’s a lot to decide in the span of one or two minutes while buying a wash on the computer system. Here’s a guide to what you can expect from our different types of washes, so you know what kind to buy the next time you head to a Super Star Car Wash Express location.

Lite Wash:

If you’re looking for a quick, simple rinse with some foaming soap on your car and a blow dry, this is it. It’s nothing fancy, but it’ll get the job done for a quick touch-up to get some minor dirt off after a dust storm.

Basic Wash:

A basic wash goes beyond a lite wash, adding our Bug Remover to get rid of bugs stuck on your car, wheel cleaner and scrubbing and an underbody wash. You also get a bonus antibacterial dash wipe, plus a complimentary air freshener if you’re in California.

Carnauba Hot Wax Wash:

Includes everything in the premium wash, but adds Rain-X for your wheels to keep them looking better, along with Simoniz Polish & Shine and Simoniz Hot Wax Shine. The carnauba wax treatment gives your paint an extra layer of protection from the sun, all the while making your car look shinier. If you’re looking for some mild protection from the sun for your car, this is it.

Ceramic Sealant Plus Wash:

This is the ultimate Express wash we offer. On top of everything included in the Carnauba Hot Wax Wash, we add extra cleaning for your wheels, plus Simoniz Ceramic Sealant. The ceramic coating provides not only more shine to your paint, but provides better protection than wax by forming a chemical bond with your paint. This wash is for those who REALLY care about their cars, and want to give them only the best of the best.

Now that you know what our various Express washes offer, all that’s left is to head to your nearest Super Star location and get your car the cleaning it deserves. All of our Express locations offer complimentary vacuums and microfiber towels as well!
