Baywash Bikini Car Wash in Winter Park, Florida, USA is the unique shop open seven days a week that offers a variety of bikini-clad cleaning services.
Owner Steve McMahon, 47, opened up the wash five years ago.
Steve said: “It started as a fundraiser for my daughter’s school and it just evolved from there.
“Now we have a lot of high-end cars coming through - we’ve done Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Bentleys - we get a lot of nice cars here."
Steve trains each employee proper leather maintenance, how to dry windows with minimal streaking, wax coating and proper detailing methods.
Services range from a $10 quick wash, which includes a hand wash and dry, to a $60 detailing wax package.
Employee Jacki Orlando, 24, has worked at the car wash for three years.
Jacki said: “I enjoy working at Baywash - it is hard work as far as labor, but it’s a lot of fun at the end of the day.
“I’ve referred friends of mine that have worked here over time - all of us girls get along great.
“Some people can potentially view Baywash as sexist - but I don’t view it that way.
“My boyfriend and family are fine with the fact that I work here - it’s just my job.”
But not everyone thinks of it as good-clean fun.
Steve said: “When we opened up we offered free services for law enforcement because we appreciated their service.
“One day a female officer took a picture of sheriffs getting their cars washed - they quickly got an email from the captain saying, ‘no more Baywash.'”
But regardless of some negative criticism most customers are satisfied with the work.
Customer TJ Reed said: “They do an awesome job at Baywash - and you also get some great eye candy as well.
“If a young lady has to wear a bikini in 90-degree weather to make it through college or pay their bills - I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.”
And business is booming at the car wash - which will be opening in multiple locations in the future.
Steve said: “I have a couple locations getting ready to open up in Altima and one in Miami.”
