There really is something to be said about having a clean car, especially during the sunny, drier months. And according to our readers, El Dorado Hills’ Suds Car Wash and Detail is the best place to go. The five-year-old car wash and clothing boutique boasts the latest in car detailing technology and it’s conveniently located in the Town Center behind Chevron. It’s owned by El Dorado County residents Jeff and Ashley Lowe, who both pride themselves on putting their customers first. The pair, both of whom are car lovers, moved to the area from the East Bay and decided to open shop when they realized there wasn’t a car wash in El Dorado Hills. “We really liked the car washes they had in the Bay Area,” Ashley said. “So we wanted to bring that model up here and so far it’s worked out really well.” They love repeat customers. “It’s great to see new faces and familiar faces come in again,” she added. “And we seem to have loyal regulars who keep us busy in the off months.” While Jeff is often overseeing the car wash, Ashley likes to make the rounds at her on-site clothing shop known as Cadence Corner Boutique. “It’s definitely fun to see people walk out with a great outfit,” she said. “And to hear them say, I can’t believe I got this at a car wash.” Customer Sue Anderson said the facility has mastered quality control and enjoys the convenience of its location. “We used to go to Folsom to do everything,” she said. “But having this and the bank so close makes it a lot easier.” Tara Morgan of Shingle Springs was a first-timer at Suds recently, and said she seemed pleased by the attention her car was getting. “They’ve been working on it for a while,” she said. “So I think that’s a good thing.” Suds is currently offering its Ultimate Hand Wash package for $39.95, which entails a full exterior wash, interior vacuuming and tire dressing. The thorough wash takes 45 minutes to complete. For more information or to receive a quote on detailing services, call the friendly staff at (916) 673-6300.
