How It Works

The Grit Guard Insert helps prevent swirls and scratches commonly caused when washing any vehicle. The Grit Guard holds dirt and debris at the bottom of any 3 - 5 gallon wash bucket. Over 95% of all swirl marks come from improper washing and drying, and one source of abrasive dirt comes from rubbing the washed-off dirt back onto the car. Using two wash buckets helps keep rinsed off dirt away from paintwork, and using the Grit Guard takes this practice to the next level. The Grit Guard Insert extracts heavy dirt and grit from the wash mitt, sponge, or towel, and helps hold it at the bottom of the bucket so it does not float back up into the wash medium. The raised radial surface features grates for dirt particles to fall through, and fins that divide the base into four quadrants. These fins break up the flow and keep the water still at the bottom of the bucket, which holds dirt down at the bottom. The Grit Guard extracts and holds abrasive dirt particles away from the wash mitt for a scratch-free cleaning experience on any vehicle. Use the Grit Guard in each wash bucket: the rinse bucket, the soap bucket, and the third wheel-cleaning bucket. The Grit Guard Insert is a game-changing paint-saving tool, but it has a number of other uses as well. Use the Grit Guard Insert to clean paint brushes by scrubbing the bristles across the grid when submerged in water or paint thinner. Use the Grit Guard when cleaning automobile parts or to drain oil filters. Stack 3 - 4 Grit Guards on top of one another to scrub buffing pads using a machine polisher. The bottom fins even make a great grid guide when laying tile! The Grit Guard Insert comes in multiple colors, perfect for color coding between paintwork and wheel uses, and for any other use to avoid cross contamination with abrasive dirt and debris. Use the Grit Guard Insert to help reduce the chances of scratching any automobile during any car wash. Colors available: black, red, blue, silver and yellow

Scratch-Free Car Wash System

Over 95% of swirls and scratches come from improper washing and drying techniques. Wiping, rubbing, and buffing abrasive dirt and debris back into paintwork causes millions of scratches in every direction. Warm radiant lights, like the sun, show these defects as unsightly swirl marks and spiderwebs. With the two-bucket method, the detailer rinses the abrasive dirt off the mitt in a clean water bucket before returning for fresh soap and back to the paintwork. This extra step washes most of the abrasive debris from the wash mitt, but some can still make it back to the soap bucket. Using a Grit Guard in the rinse bucket helps keep abrasive dirt and debris at the bottom of the bucket and away from the wash mitt. Adding a Grit Guard Insert to each bucket drastically reduces the chances of causing swirls and scratches during the wash process. The Grit Guard Insert comes in multiple colors to designate them for specific uses on sensitive paintwork, wheels and undercarriage parts, around the home, and more. Pair the Grit Guard Insert up with a premium microfiber chenille car wash mitt and super-slick Chemical Guys Car Wash Shampoo for proper lubrication and scratchless removal of dirt and debris.

Easy To Use

The Grit Guard Insert is a passive system that requires no energy and no maintenance. Simply fill the wash and rinse buckets with water and soap and place a Grit Guard Insert at the bottom. That 's it! Every dip of the soiled wash mitt rinses away trapped contaminants and debris into the rinse bucket. Gravity takes over and pulls the heavy dirt and contamination through the plastic grate and into the bottom of the bucket. The four vertical fins on the bottom of the Grit Guard raise it above the bottom of the bucket and create a low-pressure zone for dirt and debris to settle and collect. This area is shielded from turbulent water and helps keep dirt and debris at the bottom, and away from the wash mitt. The Grit Guard Insert saves money and time in other areas as well. Stack multiple Grit Guard Inserts on top of one another to wash, scrub, and rinse foam and microfiber buffing pads with a machine polisher inside a bucket. Save time when cleaning and conditioning buffing and polishing pads. The Grit Guard is low tech and low maintenance; simply rinse clean and let air dry before storing between uses.

Versatile Design For Many Uses

The Grit Guard Insert helps manage dirt and debris during a car wash, but the simple design makes it one of the most versatile tools in your detailing arsenal! Place a Grit Guard Insert in each wash bucket for a scratch-free washing experience on any vehicle. Stack Grit Guards in a bucket of water and pad cleaner to wash and condition foam and microfiber buffing pads. Lay out wash mitts, applicator pads, and washing brushes to air dry off the dirty ground atop a Grit Guard Insert. The durable chemical-resistant plastic construction even makes the Grit Guard great for cleaning filthy car parts, or for draining oil filters. The bottom fins cross at true 90°, so use the Grit Guard as a grid when laying floor tile or for arts and crafts. The various uses of the Grit Guard is limited only by your imagination and need! Choose the Grit Guard for versatile detailing protection when washing any vehicle.

How To Use:
  1. Fill each car wash bucket with water (a two-bucket wash requires 3 buckets: one for soap, one to rinse the mitt, and a separate bucket just for wheel cleaning tools.)
  2. Place a Grit Guard Insert at the bottom of each bucket. Wash the vehicle with the premium microfiber wash mitt and soap, then rinse the mitt in the plain water bucket and wring it out on the ground before returning for more soap.
  3. Scrub heavy dirt and debris off the mitt directly on the Grit Guard. Rinse off the Grit Guard with fresh water before allowing time to air dry and storing for the next wash.
