    Its 2 x Buckets , one with suds and the other with clean water,

    So after you dip your micro fibre sponge in the hot suds, and wipeover the car, you then dip your micro fibre sponge into the clean water to remove all the dirt, etc ......

    Yep, no point in washing the car with a dirty mitt. Use the second bucket to rinse it off between dunking in your nice clean, soapy water.

    And watch out for the wonder wheels - is it not an acidic cleaner? And what is your method for drying?

    There is a whole world of looking after your paint which, as some on here would know, can induce OCD! With the foaming, drying, claying, DA'ing, LSP, sealants etc etc.

    Need to get mine done soon, am covered in swirls

    TBH I cant remember the last time I used the 2bm. How many of us here actually only wash our car once a month? Or drive through a field to get home from work? Im as OCD Anal as they come, I just don't see the point unless ive got mud splatters up the sides etc.

    True, but it does encourage repeated good practice.
