WHAT YOU'LL NEED

STEP 1

Prep your car

You're going to want to rinse the car, to ensure there’s no old wax or stuck on dirt and grime, and then dry it.

STEP 2

Put your hand in a plastic bag and gently rub your hand on the surface of your car

The bag will help to detect any stuck on grit and dirt that has adhered to the paint.

STEP 3

Grab the clay and ensure it is well lubricated using a spray detailer

You can then start to move the clay over the surface of the car, as it picks up dirt and grit.
