Clay Bar is used to remove dust, dirt, industrial fallout, acid rain, and other contaminants from your car's exterior surfaces. The process involves removing particles that stick to the clay when it is rubbed along the car's surface. Claying is most commonly used on paint, but also works on glass, fiberglass, and metal. When done properly, claying is non-abrasive and will not damage your car.
The Clay Bar absorbs contaminants within the surface leaving it glassy and smooth to the touch

How to use?
1. Wash and dry your car thoroughly to remove as much of the dirt, grime, and other contaminants from the surface as possible.
2. Cut the clay bar into pieces in order to get more use from each bar.
3. Squeeze the clay in your hand until it becomes easily pliable.Roll it into a ball and flatten it into a circular shape that is about 3/4 inches (1.91 cm) thick.
4. Spray water generously over an area measuring approximately 2 feet (0.6 m) by 2 feet (.61 m by .61 m).
5. Slide the clay back and forth gently over the lubricated area using as little pressure as possible.Add more lubricant if the clay sticks while you’re trying to slide it (You should hear and feel the clay picking up contaminants as it slides over the surface.)
How to use?
6. Fold the clay in half when it becomes dirty and knead it over itself until you have a clean surface.Be sure to examine the clay periodically to make sure that it doesn’t pick up any large particles that could scratch your car’s paint when you’re sliding the clay over the car’s surface area
7. Wipe the lubricant off the car using a clean microfiber towel.The paint should be as smooth as a sheet of glass. If it isn’t, clay the area again.
8. Repeat the claying process, one section at a time, until the entire car has been clayed.Overlap new areas with surrounding areas already cleaned to ensure even coverage and cleaning.
