WHY CLAY? Maybe you’re familiar with clay bar regimens and swear by them. Perhaps you’ve never used a clay bar but are interested in learning about the benefits of claying and are ready to try it for the first time. Whatever your level of experience, Meguiar’s Professional Detailing Clay is the ideal tool for restoring a mirror smooth texture to your car’s finish. Claying is not difficult. In fact, with Meguiar’s, it’s easy and fun to work with. And nothing, nothing, pulls contaminants out of your paint like clay.
First, begin by checking to see if your finish is a candidate for claying. We recommend the ‘bag test.’ Wash your car and thoroughly dry it. Then, take a plastic sandwich bag or freezer bag and place it over your hand (like a glove) and slowly stroke your painted surface. Hmmm.... Feel some grit there? Maybe a little bumpy, sandy, or rough texture? Unless the paint feels utterly smooth through the bag, your paint should be clayed. Clay bars actually absorb the contaminants and pull them up and safely away from your paint. These are the tiniest of particles that won’t budge with soap and water, because they are virtually stuck in your paint. That is, stuck, until you use Meguiar’s Professional Detailing Clay.
You may be wondering where such particals come from. Valid question. Our cars are attacked by contaminants everyday. From bug residues, highway grime, dust, pollution, overspray of cleaners, paints, sprinkler systems... you name it! It all finds a way to attach itself to your finish. We’ve all dealt with bug residues that seem so cemented on you'd think you’d need a chisel to remove them! Finally, through much effort (and hopefully without the chisel) you manage to get it off your car--or so you think. Usually tiny amounts of residue that you cannot see remain etched into the surface of the paint. It doesn’t seem problematic, for a time anyway, because you can’t see it. But, if left to fester, such contaminants can worsen and cause real damage--like rust spots.
The easiest (and least expensive) way to remove these particles and save your paint, is claying. Meguiar’s Professional Detailing Clay is among the best on the market. It’s easy to use, reliable, inexpensive and made from high quality clay.
