How to Use a Clay Bar or Clay Cloth
1. Wash and dry the car, remembering to remove any bugs or tar from the paintwork before using a clay bar (There are many bag & tar removers on the market)
2. Break off a small piece of clay bar for use, work the clay piece into a flat disc around 5cm x 5cm, if you drop the piece on the ground throw it away as it now has dirt and grit on the surface that will scratch the car.
2. Spray your clay bar lubricant onto the paint so that you have a generous coating (work in smaller sections)
3. Start to rub the clay bar over the lubricated area, left and right or up and down, no circular motions. this will remove all the contaminants from the surface.
4. While the surface is still wet, grab a clean microfibre cloth and wipe over the surface to clean any remaining clay lube and contaminants to leave a smooth and dry surface.
5. Regularly knead the clay bar in on itself to create a new surface area and then repeat the process of creating a flat disc 5cm x 5cm. (not necessary with a clay cloth or mitt)
6. Repeat the process until you have done the whole car.
7. Now your paint is ready to be polished and waxed.
Note: Clay bar will not remove swirl marks, oxidation or stains, this can be done by polishing and buffing in conjunction with other processes.
