In our opinion, bucket filters (commonly referred to as grit guards) are not essential for safe washing; for the last ten years we've worked without them, instead relying on clear wash buckets and good technique to make our routine washes safe. However, we acknowledge that they can be useful if you like to store brushes and mitts in your buckets as your work (as the filter keeps them safely suspended above the dirt and grime that accumulates in the bottom), and that they do no harm as long as you use them sensibly and continue to work carefully. Thus, if you want the extra reassurance they offer, look no further than the Scratch Shield Bucket Filter, which fits both our Clear Wash Bucket and the Swissvax Smart Bucket perfectly.
The Scratch Shield Bucket Filter fits buckets with a diameter of 238 mm or more (measured 65 mm above the base) and is designed to help reduce the chances of inflicting marring and fine scratches during the wash process. It does this in two ways. Firstly, it provides a textured grid against which you can gently rub your wash mitt whenever you go to rinse it out or soak up fresh suds. This action encourages particles of dirt and grime to be released, and thus helps to keep your mitt cleaner as you work. Secondly, it traps said particles of dirt and grime in the bottom of the bucket, and helps to prevent them from being stirred up and transferred back onto your wash mitt and then your car.
Assemble in line with the supplied instructions, making sure you install the numbered legs in a clockwise order. For detailed information about the two bucket wash method and the benefits it offers in terms of establishing a safe and effective wash routine, please take the time to read our illustrated guide entitled "How to wash and dry your car safely".
