Clay bar your car?

Clay barring is an essential part of car maintenance that many people overlook. It is a simple and effective way to remove dirt, grime, and other contaminants from the surface of your car's paint. In this blog, we will discuss the steps involved in clay barring a car.

Step 1: Gather the necessary materials

Before you begin, make sure you have all the materials you need. You will need a clay bar, clay lubricant, a microfiber towel, and a clean bucket of water. You can purchase these items from an auto parts store or online.

Step 2: Wash your car

Wash your car thoroughly with soap and water to remove any loose dirt or debris. This will ensure that you don't scratch the surface of the paint while you're clay barring.

Step 3: Prepare the clay bar

Take the clay bar out of its packaging and divide it into smaller pieces. You will only need a small piece at a time. Knead the clay bar in your hand until it becomes soft and pliable.

Step 4: Apply the clay lubricant

Spray a generous amount of clay lubricant on a small section of the car's surface. The lubricant will help the clay bar glide smoothly over the surface and prevent it from sticking.

Step 5: Use the clay bar

Take the soft, pliable clay bar and gently glide it over the lubricated surface. Use light pressure and work in a back-and-forth motion. The clay bar will pick up any contaminants that are stuck to the surface of the paint. You may hear a slight dragging sound as you move the clay bar over the surface.

Step 6: Check your progress

Check the clay bar frequently to see how much dirt and grime it has picked up. If the clay bar becomes dirty or discolored, fold it over to expose a clean surface.

Step 7: Repeat on other sections

Repeat the process on other sections of the car's surface until you have covered the entire car. Be sure to use a new piece of clay bar for each section.

Step 8: Rinse the car

Once you have clay barred the entire car, rinse it off with clean water to remove any remaining clay lubricant and debris.

Step 9: Dry the car

Dry the car with a clean microfiber towel. Avoid using a chamois or any other type of towel that could scratch the surface of the paint.

Clay barring your car can be a time-consuming process, but it is well worth the effort. It will leave your car's paint looking smooth and shiny, and it will help protect it from future damage. With these simple steps, you can clay bar your car like a pro.
