Using a clay bar is probably one of the most beneficial yet often understood steps to proper paint care. It's fairly quick, very easy, and extremely safe. Here's how to do it:

Regardless of where you live, your paint's finish is subject to a variety of damaging contaminants. Acid rain, bird droppings, metal particles, brake dust. All of these present a danger to the integrity of your paint.

You may not necessarily see them, but you can definitely feel them.

Mothers® Clay Bar is a great product for getting rid of paint fouling grime.

First, remove the clay bar from its wrapper, then knead and flatten the clay in the palm of your hand.

Starting with a cool, clean surface, spray the Showtime® Instant Detailer liberally in a sweeping motion to lubricate the small area that you're gonna be working on, it's about two square feet.

Lightly glide the clay across the lubricated surface. You may feel an initial resistance, and even hear the contaminants as they're being removed. Now continue this process until the area feels completely smooth, and the clay glides easily.

Now between panels, knead and fold the clay bar back onto itself to refresh the working surface. Always ensure the paint surface is thoroughly lubricated when using clay.

Using a soft microfiber or terry cloth towel, dry off any excess Instant Detailer and move to the next area to be clayed — re-knead the clay bar for each new section to maintain effectiveness.

Plan on re-waxing the finish after using the Clay Bar.

You've heard about clay bars—professional detailers, body men and your car buddies all talk about how they work. Now use the clay bar everybody wants.
