paint swirls are caused by improper detailing techniques. For example, when you
wash your vehicle, dirt and sand get trapped in the mitt. The first time you
re-wet your mitt in the bucket, some of the abrasive particles will come
off the mitt into the water. Subsequent dips in the bucket will
re-contaminate your mitt. These contaminants will then rub against your paint
while you wash, and produce swirls.
To get those particles out of
your sponge or mitt, you need the Grit Guard insert. The raised radial
surface fits in the bottom of any 5 gallon bucket and extracts grit from your
wash mitt or sponge when you drag it across the Grit Guard. The dirt settles at
the bottom of the bucket so your wash water stays clean. The Grit Guard has a radial
grid surface that scrapes dirt out of your mitt or sponge. Four quadrants at
the base of the Grit Guard calm the wash water and hold the grid above the
bottom of the bucket. Dirt falls to the bottom and stays there. Youll be
amazed at how much dirt accumulates in the bottom of your wash bucket!
The Grit Guard takes the grit out of your mitt
for safer, swirl-free washing. This inexpensive item can save you countless
hours and pounds spent removing swirls. Two Grit Guards are better than
one! For optimum paint protection, stack two Grit Guards in one bucket. The
stacked grids stand 5 above the bottom of the bucket and stabilize more water.
The grit settles to the bottom of the bucket and remains there because the
grids prevent the water from being stirred up in the bottom. The addition of a
second Grit Guard also provides more clearance between the clean water at the
top and the dirty water at the bottom to lessen the likelihood that a stray
grain of sand will find its way to the top.
