    ONE bucket wash method (not recommended)

    While I think using only one bucket to wash your car is ok if you use ONR or the new Meg express wash....this vid is clearly NOT recommended

    EEEK!

    I can't believe that much damage is just from using 'one bucket.' But in this case, kinda glad they didn't use a two bucket method...lol.

    Great vid...

    (Bill, thanks for going first)

    I've never used a rotary buffer, perhaps a rotary will get that out?
    I didn't know you could do the interior and exterior at the same time!
    Is that what they call at nuclear power plants heavy water?
    Hope they used Hyper Soap at 400 to 1, per manufacturer's recommendation.
    Brings new meaning to high pressure wash.

    OMG that is amazing
    I wonder if I could convince any Prius owners to let me "bathe" their cars

    Not sure it's going to be easy polishing the glass.

    Do you think it's safe to use only one bucket with ONR and similar products, or would you be safer using the two-bucket method?

    ^Obviously using 2 buckets is safer, but I find using one 5 gallon bucket & filling with 5 gallons water/ 5 oz of ONR works pretty good for my cars....just wash the dirty lower panels last.
