    I have not noticed the marring with the Speed Master brand of clay towels and mitts on the cars I've used them on.


    My own personal rule is based upon my experience in car detailing and my experience is that anytime you rub ANYTHING over car paitn the potential exists to mar the paint BECAUSE paint, as in clearcoat paint but also single stage paint is SCRATCH-SENSITIVE.

    This means it scratches easy.

    So my own personal rule for car detailing is if I'm going to RUB any kind or type of "think" over car paint that is supposed to remove junk that has formed a strong enough BOND to the surface that the junk won't wash off - then I'm ALREADY planning on doing at least one machine polishing step to INSURE no marring exists.


    Make sense?

    Everyone can copy me on this or find their own way, it's up to you.

    Re: Review: Speed Master Clay Towel and Clay Mitt

    I have reviews and on the forums about them, I take it like clay their are different grades?

    And yes, I do understand about paint being thin and sensitive. I have always been amazed knowing that I'm pulling little iron particles and other junk out of the paint as I clay and I'm not turning it into sand paper. But I'm sure she might be doing just that if the appropriate amount of lube is not used.

    Thanks, Greg
