11 litre bucket, complete with Scratch Shield, lid and 'Wash' or 'Rinse' sticker.
When your bike is particularly dirty, or if you are seeking to maintain a perfect scratch-free finish, we recommend using the "Two Bucket Method" of cleaning.
Used in combination with a Scratch Shield, placed in each bucket, this ensures that stones, grit and mud are less likely to be placed back on to the bike when relathering your wash mitt, causing scratches and inefficient cleaning.
So what is a Scratch Shield? Simply put, it is a hard plastic filter that sits at the bottom of each bucket, allowing dirt to settle beyond the reach of a mitt, and helping to prevent dirt being swirled up into the main wash mix once it has settled. The fins are adjustable for a snug fit and to allow you to re-use the Scratch Shield in different capacity buckets if required.
You can see how well a Twin Bucket Method works in combination with Scratch Shield buckets, by checking the colour of the rinse water after a wash; it should be mucky in comparison to the remaining wash mixture.
Please note, bucket lid is a dust/storage cover only and bucket cannot be sat or stood on.
