Washing your vehicle isn’t just a soap-and-water exercise, as evidenced by the color-coded Dual-Bucket Washing System by Grit Guard. The red bucket is for rinsing dirt and grime from your brush or washcloth, while the blue bucket that contains only the clean wash solution. Both feature Grit Guard’s removable inserts that keep the washed-off crud at the bottom of the bucket, reducing the possibility of paint scratches or swirls. Each bucket sits in its own dolly with casters, comes with individual lids and can be linked using a connector plate. A seat cushion that’s included with the kit converts one bucket into a handy stool. The Dual-Bucket System sells for $120 from www.gritguard.com.
