Go to your local Indian restaurant or takeaway and ask them for an empty ghee bucket. They will give it you for free. Give it a wash with liquid detergent it will last ages.

I use lots of meguiars stuff but a £7 bucket, no thanks. Their tyre gel and ultimate finish polish are great though

You mean will a piece of round plastic sit at the bottom. Yes it will. I personally never use the last 20% of the bucket on body work, only on the tyres/wheels if I can't be bothered refilling

That’s better, no need for grit guard, use clean water, change regularly and clean your car regularly. A pre-jet with your Karcher will take off any larger grit.

Wouldn't use a sponge. Would use a mitt. Would use a grit guard. You don't want little pebbles rubbing on your cars paintwork. This bucket is huge. Is it worth saving a couple of quid of an inferior quality one where you can't fit a grid guard and have to make more trips inside filling it up? I suppose everyone as different standards and on cheaper car of you're not detailing it doesn't really matter

Don’t know what you drive but mines not really a cheap car. But I’ve managed to get through my who life and lots of cars without scratching a single one while washing and I did used to very big into customising cars, repairing damaged cars and was a bit of a car fanatic back in the max power days. I did quite a bit with cars, I still do the odd mop on my car but not got the time to be as serious as I used to be.

I bet you've scratched that them. It's guaranteed if you're not using a grit guard. So after every wash you examined the car with a magnifying glass to check if you've scratched it. I thought I would was a bit well coco

Absolutely no chance I have scratched a car while washing. I do have a meguiars mitt but still use a sponge. If a car has imperfections in the paint that require a magnifying glass to see then it’s not a concern. If by chance I had a scratched car, as long as there is no paint broken I can machine polish it out no problem.

We're talking fine scratches here. Most noticable on black cars where you can see swirls that spoil the finish.

It all depends on the colour, quality of the paint and of course how much of perfectionist you are.

For the sake of a few quid and an extra 10mins I always clean using two bucket method and a mit...

Wash, rinse, dry. Heavy swirls need machine polish.

The whole point of grit guards and large buckets are to prevent paint swirls. These are very different from deep keyed like scratches.
If you use one bucket of water and no grit guard, you will get swirls. If you don’t care, then that’s fine. If you do, then 2 large buckets and a grit guard are what you need.
Anyone arguing the toss in between, why do the pros, waste their time with guards and 2 buckets? Especially if they have to do it day in day out.

Most retail outlets only sell 10l buckets that won’t fit a guard, that makes this a bit more of a deal. I personally went with 2 Plasterer buckets from Screwfix. Far better made and have proper metal handles, secured by metal hasps.

I can’t they cost more at the moment £7.99. The cheaper version is £6.99 but I prefer the better build when lifting 30kg of water.

Just wash you car, it’ll be fine. If you end up with swirls, get it polished. I’d love to see a list of these show finished cars you all drive. So, please tell, what do you all drive and what colour, and solid or met?
