|QUESTIONS FROM OUR READERS:|
|Q: I have always heard that people use "clay" on their cars. What is clay, and how do you use it?|
A: Clay is a paint cleaning product that has been around for a number of years. However, recent advances in clay has resulted in what's now referred to as "poly-clay" (synthetic clay).
Clay needs to be used with a lubricating agent (quick detailer) so be sure to have plenty of quick detailer spray around. Simply spray a liberal amount of lubricant on the surface you wish to clay, and begin working the area with the clay using a light to moderate pressure. The clay should just "glide" across the surface - if it sticks or grabs, use a little more quick detailer (or a little less pressure). If it just "slides" around, use a little more pressure. We usually like to clay a 2'x2' section at a time, which takes us about 2 minutes.
We finish by drying the area and testing it for "smoothness" - if it's perfectly smooth, we move on to the next section. If it's not, we repeat the process on the same area.
