The two bucket method is an easy and safe way to wash your vehicle without causing damage. To use the two bucket method, you need: two buckets, two grit guards, a wash mitt, and your favorite soap. One bucket is designated as the “wash bucket” and the other as the “rinse bucket”. First, you place a grit guard at the bottom of each bucket. A grit guard is a circular piece of plastic that creates a barrier between the dirt on your wash mitt and the clean water at the surface. The grit guard creates four quadrants at the bottom of the bucket in which dirt that settles to the bottom cannot resurface. This keeps the mitt clean and free of dirt, which could otherwise scratch your car when you are wiping a panel. Next, fill both buckets with water and add soap to the wash bucket. Place your mitt in the soap bucket to saturate it with soap and water and wipe a panel of your car. Once the panel is wiped, dip the mitt in the rinse bucket and rub it on the grit guard. This will release all of the dirt the mitt picked up on the panel and allow it to settle to the bottom of the bucket, cleaning the mitt to be used on another panel. Now, place the mitt into the wash bucket to reapply it with soap, rub it on the grit guard to further remove any dirt and debris, and continue washing the next panel. Repeat these steps after ever panel.
