Washing and Drying Starter Kit

July 24th, 2008

Washing & Drying Starter Package
2x Sheepskin Wash Mitt
1x Lake Country Blue Grout Sponge
1x Chemical Guys Maxi Suds II
2x Microfiber Waffle Weave Drying Towels
1x Grit Guard

Fill two 5 gallon buckets with water, about two thirds full, and place the Grit Guard in the bottom of one bucket. In the other bucket pour in 1 – 2 ounces of the Chemical Guys Maxi Suds II and add more water to create a shampoo lather. Dunk the Sheepskin Wash Mitt in the water and shampoo mix and begin washing your vehicle from the top down. After washing 1 – 2 panels we recommend you dunk your mitt in the bucket with just water and lightly wipe the mitt against the Grit Guard. This will help loosen contaminants so they separate and diffuse into the water solution. Wring the mitt out and then put it back in the shampoo and water solution and repeat this process. Use the Lake Country Blue Grout Sponge on lower panels and areas prone to heavy contamination build up. This helps preserve the Sheepskin Wash Mitt so it’s more likely to be very clean and safe to use. Rinse the vehicle after completing several panels and thoroughly upon completion.While in a shaded area you should dry the vehicle immediately after washing to minimize the possibility of watermarks. Use one towel to absorb the large pools of water with a blot drying technique. This is the process where you pick the towel up and move it around the vehicle instead of dragging it. Halfway through drying you should use your second towel.

After the vehicle is dry we recommend completing the rest of your detail right after. Please look over our Polishing and Protection Packages for more products that can help you complete an outstanding detail.
