Keep the surface nice and slick with spray,do small sections at a time and wipe dry before you move on to the next section,kneed your clay when it starts to get a little dirty,tear your clay in half (if you have a newer car half a piece should be fine) and most important.......if you drop it.....toss it. Dont even think about using that piece again.

Realistically, they are the same product.


Macguires, mothers... Both are good.

Can you hurt the paint ? And I picked up mothers kit today.

Wash, clay bar, wash, paint sealant, then wax ? What's the process ?

As long as you don't press hard AND use plenty of the spray... Gently glide it across the surface. Fold as discussed above.

So wash, clay bar/polish, wash, wax (meguir's tech wax 2.0 is a synthetic sealer/wax. Works really good).

The reality is I never have done the second wash... Just a really good wipe down with the detailer. But it would be better to wash.

I have also done the clay bar while washing (still using their detailer/lube). Hence the need for only 1 car wash. I'm just lazy!!

If I use that tech wax can I do a paste wax over that ?

Won't hurt. I've done that, but the gloss on the TW is unbelievable. May not be worth the effort.

I don't wax over it and I have a black car. Like. Glass.

Prep is important... If you have major flaws, a clear coat safe polish and orbital will do a better job than the clay bar... Sometimes I do that instead if the clay bar. That is what takes the minor flaws out (scratches/swirl marks).

I'll just use the tech wax.. How many coats do you do?

I go can 1-3 months. Depends on how often it rains. And I wash her 1-2 times a week. And detail spray every other day or as needed. Side effects include uncontrollable drooling and dry eyes from staring without blinking.
