A large bucket 5 gallon bucket (22.7L) and lid with a Original Grit Guard to prevent grit coming in contact with mitt or cloth.

How does a grit guard work? When dirt is is rubbed off your wash mitt into the bucket it naturally begins to fall to the bottom. When the mitt is once again placed in the bucket, the water is then disturbed causing the dirt to once again flow around the bucket which can then land on the mitt. The grit guard traps dirt by stopping the water from flowing beneath it.

We say: "We recommend always using the 2 bucket method; a rinse bucket and another for wash. Simply put plain water in the 'rinse bucket' and soapy water in the 'wash' bucket. When you have wiped your soapy mitt around a few panels of the car, rinse your mitt into the rinse bucket as this will remove all the dirt you have picked up of your car from your wash mitt. This then allows a clean mitt to then go into your soapy water."

The Original Grit Guard - The First On The Market

Protect your paint from swirls caused by contaminated wash water.

Most paint swirls are caused by improper detailing techniques. For example, when you wash your vehicle, dirt and sand get trapped in the sponge or mitt. The first time you re-wet your mitt in the bucket, some of the abrasive particles will come off the mitt into the water. Subsequent dips in the bucket will re-contaminate your sponge. These contaminants will then rub against your paint and produce swirls.

To get those particles out of your sponge or mitt, you need the Grit Guard Insert. The raised radial surface fits in the bottom of any 5 gallon bucket and extracts grit from your wash mitt or sponge when you drag it across the Grit Guard. The dirt settles at the bottom of the bucket so your wash water stays clean. The Grit Guard has a radial grid surface that scrapes dirt out of your mitt or sponge. Four quadrants at the base of the Grit Guard calm the wash water and hold the grid above the bottom of the bucket. Dirt falls to the bottom and stays there. Youll be amazed at how much dirt accumulates in the bottom of your wash bucket!

The Grit Guard takes the grit out of your mitt for safer, swirl-free washing. This inexpensive item can save you countless hours and pounds spent removing swirls. Two Grit Guards are better than one! For optimum paint protection, stack two Grit Guards in one bucket. The stacked grids stand 5 above the bottom of the bucket and stabilize more water. The grit settles to the bottom of the bucket and remains there because the grids prevent the water from being stirred up in the bottom. The addition of a second Grit Guard also provides more clearance between the clean water at the top and the dirty water at the bottom to lessen the likelihood that a stray grain of sand will find its way to the top.

Grit Guard products will give you a safer, more comfortable and convenient car wash!
