Yes, you read it right, you can start decluttering your car detailing kit to let go of the tools you won’t need anymore.
In this blog, you’ll find out about 3 car detailing tools that are no longer necessary in your car detailing kit.
- Grit-guard buckets
- Wash mitts

Come to think about it, not using these tools can be economical for you.
You won’t have to buy so many tools and you won’t have to spend for its replacements when it starts to wear out.
If you’re ready to find out what these tools are, then let’s go!
1. Grit-Guarded Buckets
Car detailing always starts with a thorough car wash. Many pro detailers used to follow the 2-bucket system where one bucket used is filled with water and another one for the cleaning solution.
What they used to do is after wiping off a car’s surface with cleaning solution-soaked towels or mitts, they’ll rinse it first with water before dunking it back to the bucket with the cleaning solution.
They do this to avoid wiping the dirt and grime back in the car.
This was the old way of doing things. In fact, this will require you a lot of time because you have to go back and forth between buckets until the whole car is washed.
However, when using a car cleaning gun, you can get rid of the extra bucket. You’ll only need one.
The sole purpose left for the bucket is to rinse the dirt-filled inner-part of the nozzle after cleaning a surface.
Yes, no more need for too many buckets. One would suffice.
Emphasis on the "s". You can work with only one bucket, not buckets.
2. Wash Mitts
Well of course, when you used to work with the old-fashioned 2-bucket system, you’ll use wash mitts to spread the cleaning solution on car surfaces.
But by using a car cleaning gun, there won’t be any need for this tool too.
Even though a car cleaning gun is best known for removing stubborn dirt in nooks and crannies, it does well on surfaces with fewer crevices too.
Wash mitts are one of the tools that need constant replacement.
It either gets contaminated with hard to remove oily dirt so you can’t reuse it on other surfaces. Or while wiping it inadvertently gets ripped on sharp edges. And of course, the usual wear and tear.
Using a car cleaning gun will help you save money from spending on wash mitts again and again.

And to tell you the truth, stubborn grime that’s been in the car for years can be removed just by a simple brush-off. You can end up brushing your heart out with your backs hurting trying to clean off hard-to-reach areas.
Think of under the car seats, under the glove box, the angle connecting the windshield and the dashboard, the pedals, and around it.
