    Do I need to wash my car after I use detailing clay to clay the paint?

    Yes, youíre supposed to break it in before the very 1st use by claying your glass until you see most of the white liquid residue go away and turn clear. I usually break it in by claying every exterior glass window on the vehicle, thatís usually all it takes.

    With a clay "bar"

    Or with a clay substitute, like a clay towel or mitt?

    Gotcha

    You don't have to "break" detailing clay in by rubbing it over glass.

    Breaking in is for clay substitutes like the Nanoskin Clay mitt or the Nanoskin clay towel and other brands of these polymerized rubber clay substitutes.


    So knead you clay into a patty and use with a clay lube.
