Springtime is the most popular car cleaning season. Car lovers everywhere look for ways to make their ride look shiny and clean for those summer cruises. The most difficult part is removing all of the salt stains and residue from the winter. For those of us who have busy lives, Wheels.ca has compiled a list of the best detailers who can do that hard work for you. Here are 10 of the Top Car Detailers in the GTA (in no particular order):
Detailing meets innovation with 123 Wash Me. Similar to Uber, this new phone app allows anyone who downloads it to request a detail and book it in less than 60 seconds. The closest detailer nearby will come right to your doorstep and detail your car. It also automatically charges the cost to your credit card, so there is no cash exchange, just like Uber. 123 Wash Me is a simple and inventive app that gathered some of the top detailers in the GTA together to offer you a standard detail at your doorstep. They have a mobile truck that travels with them to your house which has all of the proper detailing equipment. Unfortunately the truck does not have the capacity to handle extensive details, but for those of you who need to have a good car cleaning at a competitive rate, this new app is for you!
- App launches in May 2016. In the meantime, details can be booked at: 123washme.com

For tough stains they use scientifically advanced chemicals and temperature controlled processes that are safe for fabrics like leather. L.A. Auto owner and operator, Ahmad, showed us his method to remove salt stains and hardened salt – perfect for right after the winter! “We use Calcium Sodium Chloride remover for those tough salt stains. We spray it on the affected area, and leave it for a specific period of time before agitating the salt and fully cleaning it with the steam extractor,” Ahmad said as he demonstrated.
