I forgot to mention this important tip about claying. Don't leave the clay in the soapy water when you are claying your car. Have a towel, plastic baggie or something to store it in while you are working. What will happen is the surfactents in the soap will start to break down the clay and it can loose its effectiveness, and become weak. Gary

So you won't have the problem that turbomangt spoke of use "Quick Detailer" as the Lub instead of soap.

Most people for the first time using clay find they don't use enough lubrication. I recommend using quick detail (spray and shine) along with soap. YOu can't have too much lubrication when using clay. Gary

P.S. I've used a spray "Quick Wax" in the past also. By using these products you do not need to rewash the car or truck to remove the soap so you can finish Detailing or waxing it.

Still another tip, cut it in half before you start, so if you drop it or it gets too cruddy, you'll have the other half left.
