The video starts with the caption: ‘When I was 15 years old my brother taught me the correct to wash a car, called the two bucket method.”
A BMW M3 can be seen in the background as the man places two large buckets in front of it.
The caption then reads: ‘To do this you’ll need two buckets filled with water.
‘The first bucket is for your car soap. The other bucket is for rinsing your wash mitt.
‘Here I am putting in a grit guard which allows the grit from the wash mitt to sink to the bottom of the bucket.’
The man then sprays a cleaning foam over the car, which he says you can buy online and use with either a pressure washer or a simple garden hose.
The foam lifts the dirt away from the paint and it’s best to apply it once, pressure wash it off and then apply it again.
Once the grit is off, it’s time to take your washing mitt and very lightly run it over the bodywork, rinsing it regularly in the rinsing bucket.
Once all the bodywork has been seen to with the mitt, it’s time to wash it all off again.
Lastly, you take a microfibre cloth and very lightly run it over the bodywork to dry the car off.
The man then shows off the BMW’s paintwork which is gleaming and scratch-free.
