The menu board is arranged in order for a particular reason. Educating owner/operators and your customers on the correct order to wash their cars in the self serve bay helps get the best results and finish providing owners with return customers as a shiny car equals happy customers.

For best results use all functions in the order they appear on the menu.

Here are a few hints and tips:

  • Leave the tyre cleaner to soak while you apply the pre-soak.
  • Always apply the pre-soak from the bottom up
    • Applying from the top down can lead to run lines.
  • Next rinse the whole car, again from the bottom up with high pressure soap.
  • If you wash has hot high pressure soap you will see improved results
