Most of the scratches on peoples car's are from washing and drying it!   If you do nothing else, make sure you wash your car with 2 buckets and dirt traps and dry it with a super soft drying towel.  These kits are made up to give you the basics you need to wash your car like without scratching like a pro, and give you the option to choose the soap that's right for your car, different sizes of the soap, and drying towels.  We'll run through the choices soon but first lets quickly recap the basic of how to properly 2 bucket wash a car:


Every loving car owner should own the following:

  • A super slick wash soap
  • A soft microfiber wash mitt
  • Two sturdy buckets
  • Two Dirt Traps
  • A super absorbent microfiber drying towel



Start off filling both your buckets with water: one for rinsing and one for washing. Press a Dirt Trap wash screen to the bottom of each bucket, which will trap abrasive dirt and debris under the screen. Then, add 1 - 3 oz of your favorite Chemical Guys car wash soap to one of the buckets. The first wash bucket is for the soap solution and mitt, and the second bucket is plain water used to rinse the wash mitt clean.


Rinse the car to remove any loose dirt and debris and to start breaking down stuck-on filth and grime. Then, pick up soapy suds with the microfiber wash mitt and gently clean off the abrasive dirt and grime from the vehicle paintwork. Work in straight lines, never in circular motions. Simple gravity causes abrasive dirt and debris to flow down, so work from top to bottom to avoid re-dirtying the areas you just cleaned.


After one or two panels, it’s time to clean the dirt off the wash mitt. Dunk the dirty wash mitt in the second fresh water bucket to purge dirt and grime from the wash mitt. Scrub the wash mitt against the Dirt Trap to push the dirt through the cyclone funnels and trap it underneath the insert. Wring the mitt out on the ground to purge any loose dirt particles from the mitt before returning to the soap bucket for another pass on the vehicle. Rinse the car with fresh water after cleaning the entirety of it and then dry the car with a large microfiber drying towel.
