3 or 4 buckets i think is insane
Nothing more than industry hype to sell more and more of the same product or youtube lads trying to get a few thumbs up.

One for paint with the grit guard and another for wheels if they having a good deep clean. Never had a issue with one bucket if im careful even on black paint. Angelwax foam always first before the hand wash.

Am i the only one who uses just 1 bucket.
Do a good prewash first.
Wash the wheels last after topping up whats left in the bucket.

Maybee i am not a true detailer

2 buckets. Use wheel cleaner and a brush + large jug full of hot water for wheels.

Sometimes 2, sometimes 1 and sometimes NO buckets (BH Auto Foam, Rinse, EZ Deflector shield, Rinse). Depends on the wash I'm doing, what I'm using and how dirty the car is.

Depending on how dirty the car is, it’s either one, two or three.
