    Re: Claying every time you wax?

    Only if it needs it. If I can see contsminents or it feels rough then I will, if it's smooth and looks clean then I don't.

    Claying every time you wax?

    I've never had this particular clay towel marr paint, I'm on my 2nd one and have used it on countless different vehicles, so I've never experienced anything that would lead me to agree that the fine grade towel is "safer" than this 1.

    In certain cases I'd argue that this Auto Scrub Handy Towel is actually safer to use than the fine grade towel... How so? Well what do you think is going to happen when you run into a vehicle that you've agreed to detail and find out the paint is heavily contaminated? There's a good chance you'll be outgunned if all you have available is that fine grade towel.

    Trying to clay that paint with an underpowered towel/mitt will result in you having to work longer + apply more pressure in order to get the job done.

    And odds are after all that aggressive rubbing on the paint you'll have left a good deal of marring behind. The beauty of this towel is that it's strength is in between fine and medium. Best of both worlds + it's the only towel they offer that's the perfect size to fit your hand [7x7"] without having to fold over [which IMO is just plain sloppy] like the other clay towels. Not to mention it's cheaper to buy. It's seriously a no brainer.

    Get a fine grade towel if the only vehicle you're ever going to clay is your own. Get the other 1 if you don't wanna get caught with your pants down someday. Lol. Just use common sense aka good technique when using it and thank me later.

    And remember to always use plenty of claylube!

    No, I'm not familiar with a gray towel.
