We’d venture to say nearly everybody has washed and waxed their own vehicle at some point. If you’re new to the hot rodding or car show scene, though, you may not be familiar with the benefits of clay as a detailing item.

The clay bar is a time-honored detailing tool used by seasoned hot rodders to remove stubborn contaminants from paint. If you’ve ever considered using a clay bar on your vehicle’s finish, we’d recommend you watch this video from Mothers. You’ll see just how easy it is to use a Mothers clay bar and Mothers instant detailer to remove paint grime, tree sap, and other stubborn debris for the ultimate show-quality shine.

Use a soft microfiber towel to dry off excess detailer spray and – bam! – your paint looks the best it has since it came off the dealer lot.
