Pre-Machine Wash by Hand
A noticeably glossier finish
What makes us stand apart from the other guys is our dedication to detail. We offer hand wash, hand wax, and hand drying services for any vehicle type (luxury cars, motorcycles, trucks, & more) that stops in at any of our locations (Hales Corners, Grafton, West Bend, or Wauwatosa), ensuring every nook and cranny is spotless.
1. Soft Touch Wash
Every vehicle that enters our wash is gently hand scrubbed first to get any stuck-on dirt, bugs, or road tar out. Vehicles enter our soft-touch car wash machine pre-washed to keep sharp particles and dirt from sticking to the soft pads or machinery, ensuring your car's safety each time.
2. Triple Foam Conditioner
We apply our triple foam conditioner to polish the exterior of your vehicle. Shine polish enhances your vehicle’s painted surface to make it noticeably glossier and more attractive. This adds no additional time to your wash, but is well worth the wait!
3. Towel Dry
Our team dries every side of your car with microfiber towels by hand.
Hand Wax Services
We offer two different vehicle wax services based on your preference. They can be added to your express drive-in service at affordable additional charges.
Frequently Asked Questions on Hand Car Washes
Is hand wash better than car wash?
A hand wash can be better than a traditional car wash if you have the time and access to car wash essentials. Since many people are always on the move and need their car washed, why not take advantage of the unique dual wash from FSCW? All Full Service Car Wash locations hand wash the dirty areas of cars before they enter the automatic wash, removing the main dirt and further preventing any scratching.
Does hand washing your car hurt paint?
Having your car hand-washed does not hurt the paint. This is as long as proper washing techniques are followed, including using a clean wash mitt and rinsing thoroughly. All FSCW staff are trained in the proper hand washing techniques and will help your car get extra clean without causing damage to the paint.
Why are hand car washes better?
Hand car washes are a better method of washing your car since they provide the most thorough clean, are safe on paint, and allow added attention to detail where certain dirty spots can receive the extra attention they need. FSCW uses a wash combination featuring a pre-wash hand wash and soft touch automatic wash so you get the best of both worlds.
Is a touchless car wash better than hand washing?
No, hand washing is a better method of washing a car than using a touchless car wash. Touchless washes use a combination of stronger wash chemicals and high-pressure rinsing instead of brushes to clean away dirt, potentially harming your car’s paint over time and producing a less effective result than physical washing. Hand washing involves gentle scrubbing of your car’s exterior by hand, allowing added attention to detail. Combine hand washing with the gentle automatic car wash at FSCW and you have the fastest and most effective way to get your car clean while on the go.
