    For the uninitiated, what does this do, exactly? Keen for ozbargain experiences, relative to Australian pricing.

      It shears the surface of the paintwork, reminds me of a more solid blutack. I do not think it is actual clay, if it is, it is highly altered and pure. You clean the paintwork, then spray the lubricant on it and rub the "clay" over it, it sticks slightly like suction and as it moves over the surface it picks up any particles; I had some metal filing with tiny rust spots on the car, first I used my finger nail to flick off the metal particle (clay would take it off but it would be imbedded in the clay) then clay bar removed the the spot. As the clay gets dirty you fold it and create a clean surface, but eventually you have to dispose it.

        Ohh, that's pretty clever. I'm always worried about grit getting caught in brushes and cloth when cleaning my cargos this would seem to be the solution!

        •  

          Yes, but remember the idea is you wash off all grit and anything that can be removed first, this is for the stubborn stuff

    •  

      Removes things from contaminated paint like dirt, grime, stains and bird poo that won't come out with washing or polish.

      You can also use it on glass and metal.

        Yep works awesome on glass

          Do you use the lubricant with it (for paintwork), I hear some people just use water?

          @Scab: tried both, didnt dry after washing, but too wet and I think it is not ideal, my experience is it is a balacing act; thats why the bottle is handy also it does make it glide easier than water

    if you haven't used a clay bar before, it's advised that you don't use the whole bar. cut a small chunk off (with a clean knife) and it'll be easier to work with. also, if you drop it, you won't waste the entire thing and have to go buy another kit. don't even think about re-using it if you dropped it on the ground; fixing marred paint will cost you in both time and money.

      I'm surprised people still use clay bars now. I would have thought the microfibre clay cloths are so much better, not to mention when you do drop it, all you need to do is rinse it off.
