Best Place for Hand Wash in DC / NoVA?

Any recs for a hand-wash/detailing shop in DC/NoVA? Detailz in Georgetown is great but charges $49 to hand-wash larger sedans. David's Car Wash in Arlington reportedly has gone downhill. KP Touch in Ballston seems good but I'm always skeptical that being in an underground parking garage makes it hard to see/perform good work.

LOLL literally one of the absolute worst detail videos I have ever seen. How that guy got his hands on a Bentley is beside me. Best part is him spraying down the jambs and getting water all over the interior. "our chemical is water activated" lolol

Bumpin this to the top. I wanna get my ride washed too.. I'd do it myself, but I haven't washed it in over 3-4 months so really want to get it cleaned by a pro before I begin washing again.

I heard they charge outrageous prices around DuPont Circle, and the 14th Street corridor is a mere shell of what it used to be back in the day...LOL
