The Cyclone Dirt Trap bucket insert sits at the bottom of your bucket while you wash filtering water non-stop. 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.
Keeps wash mitts clean
Every Dirt Trap bucket insert is molded with Cyclone Scrub Ridge rings around every dirt cyclone funnel. Rub the wash mitt directly on the Dirt Trap to scrub and agitate any embedded dirt and grime from the wash fibers, then funnel and trap it directly underneath the insert. The Cyclone Scrub Ridges are designed with the perfect grip and height to work with any chenille, microfiber, or natural lambswool car wash mitt, natural car wash sea sponge, or boars hair wash brush. The ridges are gentle on natural and manmade fibers, and will not tear apart or destroy any car wash mitt, sponge, or brush.
Knock dirt, dust, grease, and grime off the car wash mitt with the scrubbing ridge, then funnel it directly down underneath the bucket insert to trap it away from the cleaner water in the bucket. Adding the Dirt Trap to the two bucket method reduces the chances of installing any swirls or scratches during a normal wash dramatically. Keep wash mitts, wash water, and any painted automotive finish cleaner and scratch-free with the Chemical Guys Dirt Trap car wash bucket insert.
