    Many people wanna know the best way to wash their Car without creating Swirls & Scratches.

    This is the Only way I teach people how to wash a car and this is a VERY important key step to keep the swirls, scratches, and defects at a minimum when Washing.

    The Method is Called "The Two-Bucket Method". It involves using 2 Buckets. 1 Bucket with Soap and another Bucket with Clean Water.

    This is the Exact method I use, Including using Waffle Weave MF Towels. :headbang:

    Going to start this soon. I dont wash this car @ home anymore, because it brings to much attention since i live in the hood. I could get away with it with the stock looking 97 GT. I live right on a end street with tons of people walking from buses to there apartment houses... not good.

    Hopefully, the car wash people will allow this. A lot of the places say, "no buckets"

    Twista, are you afraid to wash your car at home cause it might get stolen?

    this is going to sound retarted, but i do this exact method, but i swear i can not get a good amount of soap onto my car. I use chemical guys so im not sure if its my water, (cold, warm, hot) or my wash mit? Do i just need a higher quality wash mit? does the water need to be warm etc. seems like when i was my car with this method i can not get alot of soap onto the car...sounds stupid i know
