quit Posted November 17, 2014 Share Posted November 17, 2014 Well as most of you know im not a car cleaning kinda guy , my company car gets washed by a quick jet wash or my friendly local eastern European friends , But my subaru barely moves and sits on my drive... gets dusty and water marked really easy!! SO.... the clay cloth company advertised, I got into clay bar some 8 years ago and thought wow this is a good bit of kit, me and my mate did it and made good results on our cars clay cloth then.... 12 quid what have i got to loose? Start off with one dirty subaru complete with cob webs, bonnet looked a different shade of blue, the roof looked matte finish! First stage i washed it!! by hand and maybe the longest job i done in a while on it, i blacked the tyres and used some special wheel cleaner on it , It didnt come out too bad but i could feel the grit and dust laying on the paint !!! So the cloth, got it out the packet, Seemed strait forward and off i went, i did the entire car in less than 30 minutes! the cloth is a decent size ( about 300x300mm) so you can flip it easy then change sides etc, I kept rinsing it in the bucket of clean water and taking off the excess water with the other side "microfibre towel" type thing. The water was a muddy grey by the end! A quick over with some quick polish (pub was open and i was bored by now!) the shine was back! Complete! Conclusion: A very good bit of kit, I have left the towel to dry in the shed after a quick rinse so will be interesting see how many times it can be used but i think thats going to be a good point in its value for money as clay bars seem to last me a year or so cleaning for car shows etc.. The cloth is alot bigger than a clay bar, Clay bars annoy me having to keep remolding it but it does get in the corners etc better than this cloth but i managed to manipulate it to suit! In future i will use a bit of foam pipe lagging to wrap it around to get into that tight spot but to be honest this is great for a quick once over pre polish, Infact i next time would probably be just a wipe over with the cloth! Im not a detailer im just a normal guy... i dont go OCD and this is just a impartial review of what i think is a very good product. Pictures are just on my phone i took down the road yesterday Im not using this to sway my entry into the competition entry ! LOL 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
