Some of the best hand car wash places are in the worst areas.

its a fallacy to think that a "hand wash" place is any better for your car than a non "hand wash" place. hand carwashing by one of those places will put as many fine scratches on your car finish as running through one with rotating brushes. The rags/mitts that they use over and over again to wash your car have many many dirt particles imbedded in them which will feel like sandpaper to your car's finish.

The only real proper way to wash a car is to do it yourself using two buckets and plenty of microfiber towels/mitts. one bucket with a lubricating soap and one to rinse the dirt off the washing towel/mitt. The rinse bucket should have a grate like separation near the bottom to allow the dirt particles to float down to the bottom of the bucket without the newly rinsed mitt to pick them back up .

"Touchless" car washes are bad also. The car is left with a film of stuck-on grime that doesn't come off with just water pressure and the strong chemicals strip wax and may hurt the paint.
Otherwise, just go to the regular cloth car wash, get a car in a color that masks scratches and don't worry about fine scratches. If you need to keep your car 100% pristine and scratch free, you will need to do it yourself very carefully and probably also leave it parked at home with a car cover on it and a velvet rope around it.

I'm a regular at Fabulous Freddy's too. It's a bunch of kids working the car wash but they do a great job AND have a great attitude. Also, if you pay for your carwash before you pump your gas, you'll get a code on your reciept for 20 cents off a gallon...just be sure to keep your reciept for the car wash afterwards.

Fabulous Freddy's for the win.

I'm similarly uneasy about the fact that even though it's a hand wash, they do use reclaimed water and used mits. It's still far superior to a machine wash. They are attentive and do a pretty decent job. When they aren't as thorough as I like, they are quick to fix what's been missed. Don't go there when you're pressed for time. Good for all but the most discriminating (gvc8) among us.
