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!)

The dark blue car I recently purchased is covered white paint overspray. There are literally millions of speckles, splatters and spots. I tried other products to no avail.

When Mothers Car Clay arrived in the mail yesterday, I went right to work. Not knowing how long the process would take, I decided to just clay a single panel. I saw results right away. Focusing on a 5"x5" area, 80% of the overspray came off within about 15 seconds of claying. The remaining 20% required more elbow grease and time, but it came off too!

THIS STUFF IS FANTASTIC! Don't get me wrong though, there is significant work required to get something as stubborn as overspray off. A single door panel took 2 hours and left my elbow aching. I think claying a car to get minor impurities off of the paint would be a lot easier and faster.

Another thing to note is that there is a learning curve. It took me about 10 minutes of claying to discover the right pressure to exert on the clay and the right amount of the lubricant spray to use.

I am thrilled with this product. Not only did it take off overspray, but it left my paint feeling smoother than I thought it could. It takes some effort, but the results are amazing. Check out the picture of the results on the main page. (Before and After shot)

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.

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.

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!
