About Cyclone Dirt Trap

The Cyclone Dirt Trap bucket insert sits at the bottom of your bucket while you wash filtering water non-stop. It’s the filter that never stops. The cyclone Dirt Trap help eliminates wash swirls and scratches with Cyclone Dirt-Trap Filtration Technology. The round wash screen separates abrasive dirt and silt from clean and soapy wash water with scores of cyclonic dirt funnels. Separating dirt from clean and soapy water keeps abrasive debris off the wash mitt, and therefore off the paintwork for a scratch-less car wash. Traditional wash baffles use large vertical screens or disposable mesh filters in an attempt to separate dirt from water, which always ends up cloudy with loose contamination and abrasive filth. These designs are defeated by the mere act of dunking the mitt into the bucket, which pushes and pulls water and dirt straight through the vertical openings of the poorly-designed screens. The cyclone funnels of the Dirt Trap separate dirt through centripetal force and push it through tiny holes underneath the wash screen. The dirt remains trapped underneath the funnels and cannot easily flow back up through the tips once the mitt is pulled out from the water. The one way Cyclone Filtration system is a passive filter that never needs replacing and does not rely on moving parts, no disposable filters, and requires no maintenance or energy to set up, use, or store.chemical-guys-dirttrap-cyclone-dirt-trap-car-wash-bucket-insert-02 Continue reading Chemical Guys New Cyclone Dirt Traps are here !!!

Protecting Your Interior With Silk Shine Dressing – Before & After

Posted on Leave a comment

Silk Shine dressing is one of Chemical Guys secret weapons, not only can it be used on all exterior plastics, trim and even tyres. It can be used inside your vehicle as well. Here we have the inside door of my own Audi. Before starting we cleaned the door card with Chemical Guys – Nonsense Colorless & Odorless All Surface Cleaner. On the left it shows the door card once cleaned, but still feeling a bit dull. And on the right it has been treated with Chemical Guys Silk Shine Dressing. This has not only brought the rich dark look back to the interior leather and plastic, it will also continue to protect it from any harmfull UV’s that could dull these materials even further

Step 1 – Wheels

I generally start by cleaning the wheels as most wheel cleaners work best when the wheel is dry, but this is not always the case. Spray a light coating of the cleaner on the wheels and let it soak and work away for about 5 – 10 mins. I use this time to setup the rest of the gear I need to wash the car, hoses, water blaster etc….Once the wheel cleaner has fully soaked in I use a wheel brush to agitate the brake dust, this step is to make sure all the brake dust has been affected and loosened by the wheel cleaner. Before washing off the cleaner use another wheel or tyre brush to give the tyre a quick scrub. The last step is to wash the cleaner off. Water blasters are ideal for wheel cleaning as they can cut through built up brake dust left on the wheel.

Recommended CarPro Product – CarPro – Iron X – Iron Filings and Contaminants Cleaner – 500ml

Important Tip – The main reason I start with the wheels is that brake dust is basically tiny bits of metal, and if they get on any sponge, wash mitts etc, they will scratch the paint and leave swirls.
Step 2 – Snow Foam (Pre Wash)

The pre wash is an extra step to some people but vital to others, The goal of the Pre Wash is to reduce the amount of contact you have with your vehicle’s paint. The less scrubbing or washing you do the less chance there is that you will rub dirt into your vehicle’s paint, which in turn creates swirls and scratches. The Foam will loosen the dirt and then flow off when you spray it down. This step is one of the most important steps if you want to reduce the amount of damage that could be caused to your paint when you wash it down later.
