fed up with wet seats??

Has anyone got any genuine tips on how to keep the water in your bucket whilst driving. I know it sounds daft and I do not drive like Schumaker but my car boot and now the seats are sopping wet.
Is there something everyone uses??

Hi recs,
          When i am doing my domestic work i use a round bucket that fits in between the rungs of my ladder which saves it being in the van. Cool

I've never had any trouble driving around with the bucket in the boot!! just leave the T bar in! ( using a proper oblong bucket ) and dont overfill!

I use 25 litre to 8 litre plastic water containers. I don't save water between each clean.

you can get a bucket with a lid on. i use an oblong bucket without a lid and have no problems.  gerry

I also use the oblong, I have a plastic sheet with a hockey strap, but can also be folded over to keep the water in, never use it for that though. Its for keeping one of those car-tidy pouches around the rim, with my cards, pen, vat book, scraper etc in it.

I keep my bucket (when in the van) in a plastic storage tub, with plastic hinged lid - was under 10. I put t-bar in bucket, but it still spills out  (4 oclock onwards) the tub catches any.

use a window cleaning bucket and leave your applicator in the water

Started using Bucket in a Bottle a few years back and haven't looked back.  No more bucket to drag along and bend over to, easy storage, mine goes over the seat back on my work belt.
