2-Bucket Method Wash
Today at Affordable Mobile Car Detailing & Paint Protection, we are going to discuss about the 2-bucket wash method and why it’s important. Many of car owners’ washes their with the wrong methods, especially using only one bucket. One bad wash can cause some major damages to the car’s paintwork.
The 2-bucket wash method is the safest way to wash your vehicle without causing any damages such as swirl marks, scratches, and general dullness. Without the 2-bucket wash method, whenever you wash your car you are constantly rubbing dirt on to the car’s paintwork (cross contamination from the same bucket)
Things you’ll need.
- Two Buckets
- Grit Guards (Optional but highly recommended)
- Shampoo and wash mitt
- High Quality Microfibre Drying Towel
Fill up 2 buckets with grit guards with water, and then pour a couple of caps of shampoo into one of the buckets.
Start by soaking your wash mitt into the shampoo bucket, start washing a panel in back and fourth motion.
Dip your wash mitt into your clean water bucket and scrub your wash mitt with the grit guards underneath.
Repeat the process until you have washed the entire car, and then rinse all the suds away and dry it with your high quality Microfibre Drying Towel. You can follow up with a spray wax or quick detailer as a drying aid to enhance your vehicle’s gloss!
