its not an actuall clay bar..its liquid clay bar...i.e not as harmful..anyone can use it..but still takes out some imperfections..

spray it with the ICE liquid wax when ure done and ure set

quic..and easyyyyyy..cheap..and works quite well

actually by using clay bar you are already stripping off the wax.

you can use clay bar right after wash. just remanber to wax your car after you're done with clay bar.

By using claybar, it strips the wax or any residue on the surface of the paints. Just remeber to lubricate good and kneel them once in every different panel. Also, if you drop the claybar on the ground, dump it.

Without using the claybar, you could still strip out the wax by using dishwash soap. It will strip out everything. However, it brings out the bare paint surface so you need to wax it or seal it.

there are some detailers that suggest totally removing and reapplying wax annually... I usually do this in the spring when i take out my car (well, this year I drove my summer car through the winter.. *stupid move*)... ANYHOW, I use Mothers California Gold® Pre-Wax Cleaner – Step 1. It removes old wax (gently) and preps the surface for a new coat of frest wax... whether its REALLY necessary or nmot, who knows... I just like detailing my car LOL...

...Anyway... clay bars DO take off old wax and most imperfections in the paint... so pre-wax cleaners aren't really all theat necessary... but DO make sure the car is clean, duh.. lol
