Best Car Wash Bucket Kit – Chemical Guys Car Care

By Grover Koelpin 21 comments

Welcome back to Detail Garage! Today we’re going to introduce you to The Best Car Wash Bucket Kit from Chemical Guys. This kit is great for the enthusiast who wants to upgrade from washing with a nasty old pail and old towels, you should only wash with high grade products to get the best results on any car. This kit comes with everything you need for a full wash and dry on any car without getting any swirls or scratches. It will enhance gloss, and make the car look great. To start, you get a high quality bucket. This is a Heavy Duty Detailing Bucket: it holds 4.25 gallons of water, made with thick heavy-duty plastic, and it’ll stand up to years of detailing use and abuse. The next item you get in the kit is the Bucket Lid. This lid snaps on to any bucket, so you can turn any bucket into a seat, step stool, or even a storage container to keep detailing supplies organized, or microfiber towels clean and scratch-free. Next up you get a high quality Chenille Microfiber Wash Mitt. This mitt holds tons of water and suds, and it’s extra soft, so it’ll help pick up any dirt and debris without scratching paint while you clean your vehicle. You also get a Grit Guard in the kit. This screen fits at the bottom of the bucket and helps hold any dirt washed off the car at the bottom. That way you don’t swirl it back up and rub the car with it again and scratch the paint. You also get three different wash soaps: Citrus Wash & Gloss, Mr. Pink, and Diablo Wheel Gel. You can use Citrus Wash & Gloss and Mr. Pink to clean any exterior surface. I would use Citrus Wash & Gloss for heavier duty cleaning, like dirt, mud, and bugs stuck to the paint. The citrus wash agents have some extra cut. Mr. Pink is great for all around cleaning and both enhance a lustrous wet shine on any vehicle. Diablo Wheel Gel is great for cleaning brake dust or road grime off wheels and suspension parts. It comes full strength, so make sure you dilute it at least 3:1 to be able to spray it from any spray bottle. It’s important to use the right products to dry your vehicle. Over 95% of swirls and scratches come from washing and drying your car improperly. So we include 2 extra soft microfiber towels. These are Miracle Dryer Towels, they’re extra large, extra plush, and they have a silk lining so you won’t scratch your paint as you dry your car. We also include a bottle of After Wash. This drying agent releases water from the surface and lubricates to reduce friction and scratches as you wipe. Now you’ve seen how easy it is to wash and dry any vehicle using The Best Car Wash Bucket Kit from Chemical Guys. This is great for anyone who wants to upgrade from all the tools and methods that are not great for your car.

Chemical Guy you should think about making a wash pole for short people or something where you can add/attach the wash mitt.

What happened to the screw-on bucket lid with the O-Ring? That product seemed higher quality.

Really wish this video would demonstrate how to properly wash your car with what is provided in the kit and nothing in addition to it. That would be more beneficial to having a better understanding and how use this kit and what is provided in it and nothing in addition that isn't included.
