    Using clay

    Couple of questions guys. How and when to use clay correctly. How regular does it need to be used.
    Cheers

    Clay is used to remove bonded on contaminants such as tar, tree sap and ingrained dirt, if you run your hand over a clean car you will feel its a bit like sand paper (more sensitive with a sandwich bag over your hand) this is what clay will remove to leave a smooth surface, it can be done when necessary but usually every 4-6 months but sooner if needed dont worry if you use plenty of lube with a mild clay it cant harm your paint but note it will strip any protection you have so its basically so you can start all over again.
    its a bit hard to explain how but if you have a look in the videos there is an excellent video for it
