Which bucket should I place my Grit Guard Insert in?
Both! You should have a Grit Guard Insert in each bucket, to double the protection against scratches and swirl marks. Be sure and agitate your wash mitt or brush on the Grit Guard Insert every time you go to the bucket.
If you only have one Grit Guard, it’s best to place it in the rinse bucket. Once again, be sure and rub the wash mitt on the Grit Guard, every time you dip into the rinse bucket. When the mitt is in the water, the fibers are free and relaxed, but in order to extract the trapped particles from the wash mitt, the mitt needs to be agitated. By rubbing the wash mitt on the surface of the Grit Guard, dirt, grit and other contaminants are extracted from the wash mitt, keeping your paint scratch free.
Then you would go to the bucket with the soap, keeping that bucket clean from dirt and grit.
How much water is under the Grit Guard?
