Soft Touch has been a car wash for over 50 years. It was established in the 1960's as "Pop In Car Wash" when Doo Wop was the rage and the Beatles invaded America. Next were the 1970's, and while discos were on every Bay Ridge corner and the greasers hung out at Mitches on 86th, Pop In was already a neighborhood staple. Although many things have come and gone in Bay Ridge, Pop In-now Soft Touch Car Wash-is still here, washing cars cleaner, softer and shinier than ever!

Look at our Top Car Wash process called the PLATINUM PACKAGE - will show you what to look for when you come in for your next car wash:
When your car enters our facility, our trained personnel inspect the vehicle thoroughly. Their experience and trained eyes immediately locate areas that need special attention. Special cleaners are used for bird droppings & tree sap.
As you drive onto the conveyor a product is applied to the wheels and tires that will quickly break down the brake dust, road grime & dirt. When it comes to wheels, there's only one sure way to do it: top-of-the-line product. Your wheels will be sparkling!
During the preparation process, we vacuum the interior, wipe dashboard and the centre console and remove discarded trash from the floor and seats. We will vacuum the trunk upon request from the customer.
As the car begins to travel into the car wash tunnel, technicians power wash the exterior to remove the heavy dirt and grime. The use of soap softens the dirt from the car’s surface.
As your car passes the first set of foamers, additional pre-soak chemicals and soaps are applied to the exterior. A special cleaning foam is applied to the wheels which provides plenty of cleaning power and lubrication before the friction process begins.
The top brush cleans the hood, windshield, roof and trunk, while two lower detail brushes start cleaning the wheels, lower door panels and rear panels.
Since the bristles on all our equipment are of extra soft foam material it enhances the cleaning action. The use of that material along with proper soap and lubrication ensures scratch-free cleaning. That is why we call our process Soft Touch Car Wash.
Next is the undercarriage spray. The heavy dirt, salt and other debris are washed off from the under surface of the car by using blasts of high pressure water. The flex wrap brush automatically comes to the front of the car to clean the bumper and grill. It then follows the contour of the vehicle to clean the sides and the trunk and rear.
The triple foam wax and conditioners which are applied then help your car’s surface glitter and shine. The side brushes and the second top brush work the Triple Foam into the car’s surface.
There are two high pressure eliminator blasters that power the dirt and grime off the wheels, tires and sides of your car with more than 1200 psi of water pressure.
To rinse the soap, dirt and grime there are rain arches that simulate the power of a heavy downpour. The final rinse arch mixes wax in the fresh water to wash away all the impurities off the car’s surface.
The Platinum Package includes two very good exterior surface products, Velocity Clear Coat Protectant and RainX. These top of the line products adhere to the car surface on contact. They shine and protect your car from acid rain, dirt and grime. No wonder your car will stay cleaner longer.
Simoniz Tire Shine is applied by machine to ensure that the tires are covered entirely with a glossy finish.
Your car will pass 6 powerful blowers to dry it.
Our technicians towel dry the excess water drippings, clean the interior windows. One of our specialties is that the wheels are dried by hand.
