The best equipment is key to a thorough wash job and a decent bucket (or 3!) combined with a grit guard dirt barrier is essential. We sell a variety of grit guards from brands such as Martin Cox, Detail Guardz, Chemical Guys, and Grit Guard.

Grit guards are designed to prevent dirt from getting caught up in your wash mitt and scratching paintwork. Grit guards are a kind of grill that is designed to sit a few inches above the bottom of your bucket in order to trap dirt and grit that falls off your wash mitt. This allows you to avoid scratching and marring the paintwork by rubbing grit particles back onto the surface. Wash like a pro and try out one of our bucket and grit guard combos!

We also sell a few washboards which maximise the safety of your wash. These are a vertical instalment of a grit guard and allow you to easily wash your hand down the side in order to remove dirt from the wash mitt. These are especially good if your hands are too large to properly maximise the use of a barrier at the bottom of the bucket.

The Chemical Guys Cyclone Dirt Trap is the filter that never stops. The cyclone Dirt Trap help eliminates wash swirls and scratches with Chemical Guys Cyclone Dirt-Trap Filtration Technology. The round wash screen separates abrasive dirt and silt from clean and soapy wash water through nearly 300 cyclonic dirt funnels. The cyclone funnels of the Dirt Trap separate dirt through centripetal force and push it through tiny holes underneath the wash screen. The dirt remains trapped underneath the funnels and cannot easily flow back up through the tips once the mitt is pulled out from the water. 

The Grit Guard Washboard works in conjunction with the Grit Guard Insert in your wash bucket to separate the grit from the mitt! Like its sister product, the Grit Guard has no flat surfaces for dirt or grit to be collected. The root cause of scratches and swirls are from particles such as dirt, grit and grime from your wash mitt. Using the Grit Guard Washboard with the Grit Guard Insert, you are ensuring a clean, scratch-free wash mitt every time you go back to the bucket for water.
