Here's Why You Need 2 Buckets
YOU'VE PROBABLY HEARD DETAILERS TALK ABOUT THE TWO BUCKET METHOD. LET US EXPLAIN WHY YOU SHOULD DITCH YOUR OLD, DIRTY BUCKET AND SWITCH TO TWO NEW ONES WITH GRIT GAURDS.
Since the dawn of time, the well known 'two bucket method' was used by professionals and enthusiasts to keep paintwork as swirl-free as possible. Let us explain how to use the method correctly, so you can get the most of washing with two buckets.
WHAT'S THE TWO BUCKET METHOD?
So, two buckets. Putting it simply, fill them both up with water and add your grit guards. Add your shampoo to one bucket (we'll call this the 'WASH' bucket) and leave one with just water (this is called your 'RINSE' bucket).
Using two buckets is essential for keeping your paintwork as swirl-free as possible. The idea is to stop the dirt and grime that you've just removed with your wash mitt being transferred back to the car as you're washing.
Using the two bucket method has to be one of the most effective and safest ways to contact wash your car. As you pick up all your shampoo suds with your wash mitt from your WASH bucket, begin to wash your car (we like going top to bottom as the higher points of the car tend to be the cleanest), then rinse out your wash mitt and clean it off in your RINSE bucket. This way, you'll effectively have a clean wash mitt to dip into your WASH bucket every time. A high quality noodle wash mitt like our Wotsmitt Wash Mitt, will trap the dirt particles within its fibres, and releasing them when you rinse.
That being said, there's no substitute for a proper pre-wash too, using our Alaska Bubblegum Snow Foam and Zest Citrus Degreaser, before your contact wash. These two products are designed to remove the thick dirt and grime so that you don't risk dragging them across your paintwork with your wash mitt.
