How to use your 2023 Holiday Therapy Bucket

What's in it?

Unique this year is our Holiday Therapy Bucket, which contains everything you need to safely wash and dry your vehicle; a perfect christmas gift. We also have a teaser for an upcoming formula update for Nanolicious Wash too.

The Holiday Therapy Bucket includes:

  • Speedolicious Wash - An exceptionally fast and high slip wash.
  • Shagamittastic Wash Mitt - Its funky fibres give a blissful safe wash.
  • Big Green Sucker - Super absorbent, plush and non-scratching drying towel.
  • Boss Gloss - A fast detailing spray and drying aid for The Big Green Sucker.

Lightning fast washing with Speedolicious

We'd recommend giving the car a pre-clean first, either with our Snow Blow Cannon and Snow Job/Mega Snow Job, or simply rinse down thoroughly with the pressure washer or the Jet setting on your hose end, to remove the heavier dirt and grime which reduces the risk of scratching your paint when you start washing.

Grab your Wash bucket and fill it 3/4 full of water. We'd also recommend grabbing a Rinse bucket available separately if you wish, and put a Great Barrier Thingy into the bottom. We strongly recommend 2 buckets - one for clean rinse water, and one for your wash water. The idea here is to dip your Shagamittastic Wash Mitt into the wash water, wash a section of the car, then bring your Shagamittastic Wash Mitt back to the clean rinse water and wring it out in there, before going back into the wash water and washing the next section, to stop dirt and contamination going into your wash water as much as possible.

Fill up one capful of Speedolicious Wash and pour it into the bucket, giving the cap a good thrash around in the bucket. Agitate the bucket with your pressure washer or the Jet setting on your hose to mix the wash and produce a nice head of suds.

Dip your Shagamittastic Wash Mitt into the wash suds and let the suds soak into it for a couple seconds (squeezing it gently can help it absorb the wash suds), then starting at the roof of the car, gently wash in a back and forth motion, then side to side so that you don't miss any spots. We prefer not to go in circles when washing - not because it will create swirl marks, but because when you do small circles, there's always a bit that you miss. When you wash up and down, then back and forth, you are guaranteeing that you don't miss any spots.

After washing the first section, dip your mitt into the clean rinse water and thrash it about and/or squeeze the suds out so that any dirt or grime leaves the wash tool, then dunk it back into the wash suds and do the next section of the vehicle, leaving the lower dirtier sections till last.

Once you've washed the whole car, rinse the suds off thoroughly (NOTE: if you're washing in the sun, rinse the suds off periodically - don't let them dry on the paint). 

Once you're done, empty the buckets and give them a good rinse out. You don't want to be storing any wash water for use later!

Safe and soft drying

The Big Green Sucker is our dedicated, super plush drying towel, and is used with Boss Gloss to enhance the drying experience.

Spray 6-8 sprays of Boss Gloss into each side of The Big Green Sucker and start drying your vehicle from the top, working your way down the car, drying any glass that may be in the sun first, to avoid getting water spots on the glass. There's no need to add any more Boss Gloss to the cloth, and you won't need to wring the cloth out either. If you find the cloth becomes waterlogged, it could be that you need to flood the panels a bit more, to remove more water before drying the car. We usually find we can dry 2-3 average sized cars with a single Big Green Sucker, without needing to wring it out.

We also recommend drying the wheels and tyres before adding any tyre shine - give them a quick wipe over with a dedicated microfibre cloth like our Dirty Deeds to remove excess water.
