Product Description

Mothers California Gold Clay Bar System features clay bars that have been created to remove the particulate debris and contaminants that washing and polishing can't. The exclusive clay bar system will remove embedded grains of metal, tree sap, airborne environmental deposits and paint overspray. The clay bar is not hazardous to paint - it is just firm enough to pick up the bad stuff, without being too aggressive. The Mothers clay bar can be used to get rid of paint fouling grime and pave the way for complete waxing. It includes: two 80 gram clay bars and a 16 ounce show time instant detailer, 15 inch x 15 inch microfiber towel.

It made the paint look and feel like the cars in the showroom.

I first bought the Mother's Clay Bar system a year ago. It sat on the shelf until I tried it on my two year old Honda CR-V.

It took less than 45 minutes to treat and wax my whole car and the vehicle now looks better than when I bought it. You can actually hear those little rust causing impurities coming off the finish. Stop destroying your clear coat or settling for less than a perfectly smooth finish get this product! I do not own stock in, or work for, Mother's Car Care prducts.

Problem: Your car is in good shape. You wash it, perhaps even use a cleaner/wax to remove oxidation. Yet, when you run your fingers or fingernails across the surface it still feels gritty.

What this product does: It will remove microscopic surface contaminants that have embedded themselves in the clear coat, such as brake and metal dust, or sit on the surface, such as overspray, sap or industrial pollution.

What it does not do: Remove scratches, swirls, anything that has etched or stained the surface such as acid rain, hard water, or bird droppings that sat too long! There's a reason it's called "detailing clay". There are other products to help with these issues.

How it works: Spray the showtime "lubricant" on a small area of the car's surface. Take the clay (sticky and the size of a hotel soap bar) and rub like crazy on the wet area. You will see quite a bit of "yuck" on the surface of the clay. Just re-knead it and start on a new section. Two words here - elbow grease!

The results: The paint on your car will feel like glass! At this point, use a good cleaner wax such as the supplied sample of Mother's carnuba cleaner wax to remove fine oxidation if necessary, followed by a good coat or three of pure carnuba wax. Your car *will* pass the towel test (drop a towel on the hood and watch it slide off!)

After putting many off-road miles on my new SUV, it was time to get a good car wash. After passing through an automatic car wash and then going to ado-it-yourself place, my car was finally ready to be pampered with the clay system. This produced worked better than advertised and here is the process that I used to clean the car and bring it back to a showroom condition.

1. Wash the car and dry it with a microfiber towel.
2. Use the system as described on the package.
3. Use Nu-Finish Scratch Doctor to remove any of the scratches. You may need to repeat this several times.
4. Use Amorall plastic protector (or any other plastic protector) on door handles and other plastic cars to protect them from wax.
5. Wax the car.

This worked like a charm. My only problem is the size of the clay bar. I think it is too small and I would not mind buying a bigger clay bar. 10 out of 10. Mother's products are truly the best!

I've used clay bar kits from four different manufacturers. All did the job fine (though some old Meguiar's clay bar caused some minor scratches in one car's paint). That said, this Mother's California Gold Clay Bar kit is a GREAT clay bar kit and it's very well priced.

As long as Mother's continues to make this kit I will continue to buy it.

This is a great clay bar system for your car. The spray included is great for not only applying the clay bar, but also quick coats of wax against nature (ie, bird droppings). Keep the spray with a micro-fiber cloth in your car to address any annoying bird dropping and to help save your paint.

About the clay bar process: I have used this product twice thus far and I stand by its recommendation. The paint is left extremely smooth and produces a BRILLIANT gloss reflection when a high quality wax job is added. I own a 2005 2-door nighthawk black pearl Honda Accord that is readily exposed to all elements and, until recently, was not a daily driver. The car is not stored in a garage and efforts to use a car cover have been thwarted with sporadic use. That being said, I detail my car after heavy seasons of abuse and especially wash my car as needed and wax top surfaces once a month. Clay barring your car is ESSENTIAL to maintaining the life of the paint job. It should be done perhaps once every 3-6 months depending on how harsh your climate is. It is not as laborious as one may expect but to properly detail your car (Wash, Clay bar, Wax/Sealant process), requires an investment in time. Take the time to do small sections at a time. The patience one puts forth will reap a great amount of benefit later. More importantly, focus more on not dropping the clay bar as it will be rendered completely useless if it touches the ground.

After reading numerous raving reviews here at Amazon.com and at several other sites, and learning that auto clay was safe for clear coat paints because it works through a non-abrasive process, I decided to give it a try -- and boy, was I glad I did!

My car was covered with a stubborn deposit of dirt and grime that simply would not come off with a car wash. It seemed that the dirt and grime had gotten lodged in the paint and wouldn't budge no matter how hard I tried washing the car. After every car wash, I would run my fingers through the paint and it would still feel gritty.

That was when I learned about Mothers 07240 California Gold Clay Bar Paint Saving System Kit. The results were astounding! After using it, the paint no longer felt gritty but glassy-smooth. The paint was no longer dulled by contaminants and the car looked like it had a new coat of paint! I was immensely pleased with the results.

Unlike a lot of car polish or polishing compounds that use abrasion to strip away surface contaminants, auto clay simply picks up surface contaminants and locks them into the clay. The clay looks and feels exactly like plasticine (Play-doh®) and it is used along with the included "lubricant" spray (actually, an auto soap that provide lots of suds -- like Meguiar's Gold Class -- will work equally well.)

Mind you, car polish still has its place in paint restoration because claying will not remove scratches; only a car polish or a polishing compound (harsher) can do that. And remember, always follow the claying with an application of wax to shield your paint from new contaminants. Also, clay your car every so often and you will keep the paint looking like new!

I am giving Mothers 07240 California Gold Clay Bar Paint Saving System Kit my highest recommendation. Go on, try it and see for yourself firsthand the difference it makes in your car paint. It's worth every penny and I'm sure you'll be glad you did!
