Shurhold’s Innovative New Bucket System

156026802048161.pngShurhold has announced a completely reimagined bucket that it says will be invaluable for motorhomes and trailers. Made in the U.S., the new pail transforms the cleaning process and how products and tools are stored.

The heart of the Deluxe One Bucket System is the company’s World’s Best Rope Handle Bucket. Thicker than the average plastic five-gallon pail, it is built for years of being tossed into storage compartments and closets. A 3/4" double-braid nylon handle provides a soft, comfortable grip, even when fully loaded. The bucket does not have a wire hoop handle which can often rust or scratch finishes. It comes with a removable non-marking rubber base providing added stability and slide-resistance.

Inside the bucket system is the innovative Bucket Grate. Sitting up off the floor of the bucket, brushes and mops are scrubbed against it to remove dirt that then sifts through the grate and out of the wash water. Two 3-ounce measuring cups are built in for adding cleaning solutions in precise amounts.

Nestled on top of the Bucket Grate is the handled Bucket Caddy. Two compartments provide storage for bottles and smaller cleaning tools. It has a perforated bottom to drain water away from its contents.

Keeping everything secure within the Deluxe One Bucket System is the padded Bucket Seat/Lid. Strong enough to stand on, it's a comfortable alternative to flipping the bucket upside down.

The Bucket Grate, Bucket Caddy and Bucket Seat/Lid are available separately and fit standard five-gallon pails. For more information, including a video about the product, please click here.
