CLAYING QUESTION

Question

Hi everyone! I have just washed my car and started to clay it. I am using the Detail Spray as a lubricant and not all(about half) of the contaminates are coming out of the paint. Is there a stronger lubricant that can be safely used to remove all of the contaminates? Any other ideas how to get the contaminates out? Thanks

You're still using a quality clay there. 

 

I've done some side by side testing with the visco clay both with and without the geometric tool.... There was some efficiency gained, but I found myself wanting to refold the clay more often (not a bad thing honestly..) which may have negated the time gained.

^I actually used the geo tool this weekend and really like the texture on the bar - its nice when used as a holder, or even if you are old school and like to just hold the bar itself, I just put the impression on the one side, go to town, then put the impression on the other side and then fold/ rework.

 

I had some older clay I was using up, didnt use the visco clay itself yet

I would only use the impression tool on one side before folding. I tried doing the sided approach and I had a harder time folding the clay to get a "clean" section again.

I use the geoimpression tool, then use it as a "holder" with the smooth side on the clay. When I'm at the point of feeling like it needs to be folded, I fold over the dirty side and work it, and then use the impression tool again on the flattest clean side. 

 

If that makes sense...

I am using The Meguiars clay kit. I ordered that before i found out about adams. I kno Adams Visco Clay is textured and does a better job but i dont want to purchase another clay kit.

In my experience that clay requires a lot more effort to remove contaminants.
