Every once in a while a great new tool is created for the detailing industry. Most great tools are created for the polishing side of the industry and are very advanced. But after thinking about all of the great tools we have available there is still one very simple product that tops all of the others. The simple invention of the Grit Guard Insert has completely changed the way that we all wash automobiles.
Swirls have always been dreaded by detailers and car enthusiasts and the majority of swirls are caused by dirty wash medium. Before the grit guard was invented it was hard to keep the dirt from the automobile out of the wash medium you were using. This product has solved that problem in more than one way. The first way is that the grit guard insert now gives a grating surface to rub our wash meduim on to release trapped dirt. Secondly, the grit guard helps prevent the dirty water from stirring around in the bucket drawing dirt back to the top of the bucket. The fins on the bottom of the grit guard insert act as a barrier to block water from moving around in the bucket. Since the water can’t move, the dirt on the bottom of the bucket stays on the bottom instead of moving to the top to get into your wash medium again. Since the invention of the grit guard we can completely rinse our wash medium in between washing panels to prevent swirls.
To be most effective it is a good idea to use two grit guard inserts in your wash bucket and your rinse bucket.
Because of this great product you can wash your cars without worrying about swirls as much, even if you have a black car. As far as the detailing industry has come in the past few years, I would still rate this as one of the most innovative products presented to the industry.
