    two bucket method?

    hey guys, im looking to give my car a good wash/wax today. i just the got the mothers powrball 4paint and i want to try this badboy out! but the question is, i have heard something about the 2 bucket wash method? how does this work? the only thing i can think of is that you would wring out the sponge/washpad in one bucket, then just use the other for the soap. im not exactly sure so does anyone use this method? thanks.

    Bingo. Not that complicated. The goal is to keep the bucket with the soap as clean as possible. When your done washing your car, the water in the soap bucket should be brown.

    When I read your thread title I thought I was in for more of this.

    I use the mr. clean auto dry for the soap. I don't use the filter or the ****ty mr. clean soap but being able to spray the soap on the car prevents dirty bucket syndrome.

    alright thanks for the help guys, i used the 2 bucket method today, seemed to work fine. i waxed with the mother powerball 4paint for the first time today. i wasnt impressed with the results, but its probably because this is my first time using it. the car came out very glazy. it might be because i only had 2 different microfiber towels to use while wiping off the wax. they seemed to get a little saturated with liquid wax.

    I use the two bucket method everytime. You can also use a gritguard, that is another option and serves the same purpose- prevent swirls and micromarring.

    Two buckets here - one is for wheels and really low bits.
