Car Wash Bucket

A 20L capacity, highly durable bucket with a comfortable handle to complete your car care collection.

Start your wash process off the right way with the Autoglym 20L Car Wash Bucket. The generous 20L capacity ensures you have enough shampoo to clean even the largest vehicles, without having to refill. Each bucket is a durable, translucent construction so you can see the liquid level in the bucket at a glance while you wash. The bucket features a large Autoglym logo, printed in a durable, full colour finish.

For the ultimate safe wash, we recommend two buckets are used, one for the shampoo solution and a second one for rinsing your wash mitt in before reloading with shampoo and returning to the car.

The Autoglym Car Wash Bucket is available with a made to measure Grit Guard that traps grit and debris minimising the chance of damaged paintwork with washing inflicted swirls and scratches.

Partner with an Autoglym Microfibre Wash Mitt and you have the perfect set up.
