How to Clay Bar your car: 

Step 1 - Wash

Make sure your car is thoroughly washed and dried to clean the paint surface of any loose dirt, dust or grime. Park the car in an area that is out of the sun and relatively cool to prevent evaporation of your chosen lubricant. In the shade, under a carport or in your garage is the ideal spot for this job.

Step 2 - Spray

Step 2 - Spray

Working on small sections at a time, spray your chosen lubricant liberally onto the section you will first be tackling and spray a little onto the clay bar too to ensure the best possible lubrication. We recommend focussing on 1/2 or 1/4 of each panel at a time depending on the size.

Step 3 - Clay

Step 3 - Clay

Apply the clay bar to the panel and gently rub back and forth with very light finger-tip pressure. Depending on how contaminated your paint is, you will feel and even hear the clay bar working its magic and pulling dirt and grime particles out of your paint. Keep moving the clay bar back and forth until you can no longer feel any resistance and the clay glides over the car effortlessly. It is important to keep on top of lubrication here, do not allow the clay bar or panel to dry out as you can cause damage to your paint.

Step 4 - Reform

Step 4 - Reform

When you notice the clay bar surface filling up with dirt, grime and other contaminant particles, fold, knead, and reform the bar so that a fresh surface is revealed and can be applied to the paint. If you drop your clay bar on the ground, it is essential that you throw it out. Clay bars are designed to lock contaminants in and if you drop it on the floor it will be impregnated with grit. Do not take any chances, head back to your nearest Repco and grab another clay bar.


Step 5 - Check

After a few passes with clay, before you move onto the next section or panel, gently run your fingers over the area to feel if there are any spots you may have missed. You should feel a distinct difference if there is a section that hasn't been properly clayed.
