To properly bucket wash a car you have one bucket that is filled with clean water and another bucket that is filled with soapy water. To properly bucket wash your car you first get your wash mitt wet in the clean water and then dunk it in your soap bucket. Once you wash one section of your car with your wash mitt you take it and put it in your clean water bucket, as you do this small dirt particles will fall into your bucket. This is where the grit guard comes in, it ensures that the dirt falls to the bottom of the bucket and as you continuously use the clean water the dirt particles won't come up and become lodged in your wash mitt in turn preventing you from scratching your cars surface. If you were to accidentally drop your wash mitt into the clean water bucket the grit guard won't let the mitt fall to the bottom and collect the dirt. You could even purchase two of these and have them in each bucket, this will ensure that you will never have dirt on your wash mitt and will always protect your cars finish when hand washing it. see less
Q: will it fit a 5 gallon paint bucket?
A: It will fit in a 5 gallon bucket
Q: How high off the bottom of the bucket does this guard raise up? Thanks!
A: It's 2 1/2 inches. But you need to make sure that it fits the bucket. Good Luck
Q: Are there any grit guards that are just under 10 inches?
A: Are you having trouble finding a bucket?
Q: Does it fit a 3.5 gal Menard's bucket?
A: If the bucket has the same bottom diameter as a 5 gallon you should be fine. When googled it says a typical 5 gallon is about 10.24 inches across the bottom and that can vary from bucket to bucket.
Q: Does this work with a Home Depot bucket
A: Hi there! Yes, this grit guard works with any standard 5 gallon bucket. Let us know if you need anything else.
