Clay Detailing: What Every Driver Needs to Know

If you’ve wondered why some vehicles still look showroom-fresh even after years of driving, clay may be the answer. The unique mineral properties of clay make it an excellent material for removing stubborn dirt and residue from a vehicle’s surface, but there are some important tips regarding its usage that should be kept in mind.

Only clay that has been specially prepared for vehicle detailing should be applied, and proper lubrication must be used to prevent damage. Small pieces of clay are simply rubbed across the vehicle’s surface where they pick up particles of stuck-on dirt and grime that are left behind by regular washing. Clay’s benefits go beyond simply improving the appearance; the use of clay also allows polish or wax to bond more completely thus preserving and protecting the surface for a longer period of time.
