The two bucket method minimizes the risk of inflicting swirl marks in your paintwork by separating the dirty water (rinse bucket) from the clean water (wash bucket). Simply fill the rinse bucket up with water and the wash bucket will contain your water with shampoo. Dunk your wash mitt in the wash bucket and clean a section of the car. Bring the mitt back to the rinse bucket to clean it out before dunking in the wash bucket again for a fresh dose of clean wash water and repeat until the whole car is clean.
It's important to have a separate bucket for the wheels was this will become very dirty with brake dust which is extremely abrasive and would cause scratches to your paintwork.
Grit Guard Washboard
The Grit Guard Washboard is an innovative attachment for the existing Grit Guard contained within our Wash Bucket & Grit Guard combination. It's angled position allows you to scrub the Wash Mitt against it to dislodge grit and other harmful contaminants from the mitt, making the wash process even safer.
Grit Guard is not included with this item.
Wash Bucket & Grit Guard
The Detailers Pride Wash Bucket is a tough, heavy duty 20L car wash bucket which comes complete with a Grit Guard. The Grit Guard provides a barrier between the dirt and grime at the bottom of your bucket and your wash mitt. The design of the Grit Guard prevents dirt and grime from travelling back up and into the wash mitt.
The Grit Guard makes for a safer wash routine and greatly minimises the risk of inflicting swirl marks and scratches in your paintwork.
The Two Bucket Method
For the ultimate in safe washing of your vehicle many detailers and enthusiasts use the Two Bucket Method. How this works is by splitting up your clean 'wash' water and dirty 'rinse' water. Fill your wash bucket with shampoo and the rinse bucket with just water. Take your wash mitt to the wash bucket for fresh wash water and proceed to wash a panel. When the panel is washed take the mitt to the rinse bucket and rinse the wash mitt out in there, making sure to squeeze out excess water. Then return the wash mitt to the wash bucket for a fresh dose of clean wash water. Repeat this process until the whole vehicle is clean. Inspect the buckets after, you will see the benefit!
Microfibre Drying Towel
The Detailers Pride Microfibre Drying Towel features an innovative dual layer design which makes it highly absorbent, super soft yet small and manageable.
The outer layer which is a diamond design which is soft and draws the water away from the surface. The inner layer features a dense microfibre core which stores the soaked up water.
All of this in an incredibly thin towel which will easily wring out during use, unlike extra large plush drying towels.

The Detailers Pride Clay Bar is perfect for removing contaminants from the paintwork. Clay Bars remove contaminants like tree sap, overspray, tar, fallout and more to leave a smooth, decontaminated surface ready for polishing and waxing.
A decontaminated surface will be easier to polish and wax and the wax will have a better bond to the surface, increasing its durability.
Using The Clay Bar
We recommend cutting this bar up into 6 chunks, keep the remaining 5 chunks in the plastic wrapper and in the box for now. Knead the chunk of clay into a coin shape. Ensure the vehicle is clean before claying.
Proceed to spray clay lubricant onto the surface of the paintwork and the clay bar. Working in small sections at a time rub the clay bar up and down the paintwork, periodically reapplying more lubricant to the surface.
Once each section is complete wipe it down with a clean microfibre towel. The clay bar will become soiled over time so you need to re-kneed to ensure you have a clean side is in contact with the paintwork. Once a clean side cant be found on the clay bar grab a new piece from the box.
