To get those particles out of your sponge or mitt, you need the Dirt Guard Insert. The raised radial surface fits in the bottom of any 5 gallon bucket and extracts grit from your wash mitt or sponge when you drag it across the Dirt Guard Insert. The dirt settles at the bottom of the bucket so your car wash water stays clean. The Dirt Guard Insert has a radial grid surface that scrapes dirt out of your mitt or sponge. Four quadrants at the base of the Dirt Guard Insert calm the wash water and hold the grid above the bottom of the bucket. Dirt falls to the bottom and stays there. You’ll be amazed at how much dirt accumulates in the bottom of your wash bucket!
The Dirt Guard Insert is a real paint-saver. But it has a number of other uses, too. Use it to clean paint brushes by running the bristles across the grid in a bucket of water or paint thinner. Clean automotive parts or drain your oil filter. You can even use the four quadrants as a grid when laying tile.
