    Re: Accidental discovery-maybe a new no mar wash system

    Yeah been 2 years 1 bucket 7-8 mitts. I’ll snow foam rinse then snow foam again and use soap in the bucket and the mitts

    I first saw the Accumalator style wash on a Ammo NYC video but learned more about it from Bill and Accumalator.

    Not sure who did it first but with these two from AG testimonials and Larry doing it I gotta geuss its gotta work.

    Got my gilmour foam gun about a month ago.

    At least you wouldn’t get robbed from the divorce, since you would be broke and I’m guessing the spouse isn’t passionate about mitts (given the initiation of the divorce).

    Heh heh...I`m always surprised when somebody`s spouse isn`t fully on-board with this stuff! Accumulatorette loves having like-new vehicles so much that she buys me Detailing products ("Need anything from Griot`s or CarPro this year?" will come up as we approach the Holidays ). I mean...gee, it`s not like anybody actually imperils the household finances with such stuff, right?

    Re: Accidental discovery-maybe a new no mar wash system

    I use "a" (not "the") two bucket method
    1st bucket has my soap solution and 11 of my best MF towels in it
    2nd bucket is empty
    I use about 1 towel per panel , once the towel comes out of the first soap solution bucket- it never goes back in that bucket- I wring it out on the grass and toss it in the second bucket when i wash each panel. When I am done, i always look in the bottom of the soap solution bucket and its clean / grit / dirt free.
    Then I take those wet ringed out towels into my washer and wash them with no added soap-- there is plenty in them anyway. Been washing new and re-painted vehicles like this for years and have literally ZERO swirls / love marring, my paint looks fantastic.

    Heh heh, but IMO it ougha be so *normal* that nobody gives it a second thought! We both have basically the same knowledge bases and understand each others interests even if we don`t necessarily share those interests (heh heh, she undoubtedly knows a lot more about Detailing, and a whole lotta other subjects, than she ever wanted to and I`m the same about some of her areas of expertise ).

    Re: Accidental discovery-maybe a new no mar wash system

    Drying extra mitts would be my issue. It`s hard work enough to wash 2 mitts, then get a hanger, clip them and then find a spot to hang it.
    Multiply that x 5X

    I would dry MF mitts in the dryer just like MF cloths. For sheepskin, turn them inside out and put them in the dryer. Always works for me.

    Re: Accidental discovery-maybe a new no mar wash system

    It`s been ages since I`ve tried turning a SS mitt inside out - as it`s not quite easy to do. Off to try again later but I doubt it`s going to flip over without a fight

    Re: Accidental discovery-maybe a new no mar wash system

    I wash at the slightest threat of dirt build up, like with exposure to rain, that all I need is the foam gun. No buckets, no mitts. But I totally understand being able to do this simply isn`t possible or practical for most.

    In a survey, most wash their wheels first. I`m with you and the minority that wash their wheels last.

    When the survey first appeared, I thought I was in the majority, boy was I wrong. Don`t remember the numbers, but it was quite significant.

    rsurfer -

    you`re not alone.
    If the PW is being used, wheels 1st.

    If just a normal hose, wheels last
    I remember that thread and I thought I was the odd man out

    I guess I`m not alone either
