Without using proper techniques, tools and process, the car cleaning and car washing can inflict swirl marks and here is the link to our guide which explains the proper car washing technique using bucket – Two bucket method.
Two bucket washing method require the following Tools:
1. Car wash shampoo, don’t use dish soap or any detergents, these are having heaving chemicals in it and will be hard on rubber and paint, and it can remove your car’s wax coat (or any other LSPs)
2. Wash mitt made of sheepskin or microfiber, both are designed to pick up and hold dirt and are gentle to the paint.
3. Two buckets with grit guard (at least, in one of them).
4. A microfiber drying cloth, preferably a waffle weave towel like GreenZ Waffle weave towel.
Fill the first bucket with clean water and the second bucket with water mixed with a pH neutral car wash shampoo. Dunk your mitt into the soapy car wash solution first to wash your car with lubricating suds with no pressure and then rinse the mitt vigorously into the second bucket with clear water thoroughly. Using two buckets equipped with Grit Guards virtually eliminates the risk of transferring dirt back onto your paint! Always use straight-line motion while cleaning with wash mitt to avoid swirls. Enjoy your car washing game!
