Greenway's Clay Body Sponge is an effective and safe method to remove environmental contamination that includes: overspray, scuff marks, bug residue, rail dust, tar, and paint overspray. Use our Clay Body Sponge on your glass, chrome, wheels, paint, headlights, taillights, smooth aluminum, and more. Removing bonded contaminants makes your paint super smooth and ready to be polished and wax. This is the most crucial step of the exterior detail process. By removing all the contamination from the variety of exterior surfaces, you will be able to bring out the full color and depth of your paint.
Waxes will last longer, and polishes will be easier to apply and remove. You will extend the life of your buffing pads and save time during the detailed process. We cannot stress enough how vital clay treatment is. If there is any contamination mentioned above on your vehicle, we do not suggest applying any compounds, polishes, glazes, or waxes without removing these contaminants.
How to Use:
After you complete your washing and drying stage, proceed to the following. Spray the surface with our Greenway's Easy Slide Clay Lubricant and glide the clay sponge over the surface until you feel no resistance. Wipe excess product away with a soft microfiber cloth. The surface should feel smooth to the touch. It's that simple! By removing contamination from the glass surfaces and then applying Greenway's Vamoose, you will achieve better clarity and make your windows easier to clean on your next wash.
You can use our clay body sponge with any of our car shampoos. We always suggest using a car shampoo that does not contain wax. The reasoning behind this is because you want the surface free of any waxes, sealants, polishes, glazes, or other products before you apply your favorite topcoat.
This method is similar to washing the vehicle twice. After you clean the entire vehicle and remove all of your bugs, tar, etc., you can dip your favorite car wash mitt into a shampoo solution and apply the solution to a panel at a time. Never use a high pH strip wash with a clay bar or sponge, which might quickly deteriorate the material. Most of our shampoos are pH neutral and delicate on the surface. The shampoo solution will provide you with the lubricant needed for the clay sponge to move over the vehicle surface.
The downside to this method is as follows: If you live in a scorching, sunny climate, the shampoo solution might dry relatively quickly and become harder to control how wide your working area is with the shampoo running down the panel. You cannot see through the car wash solution, so you will have to feel the panel to ensure all contamination is removed. This applies to the contamination that you cannot see where the normal eye cannot view most contamination. This method is usually quicker If the vehicle panels are not heavily contaminated. This method can also be slightly more cost-effective.
If you enjoy using a car wash solution over a clay lubricant, try to clay the vehicle side that is in the shade first. Once this side is complete, turn the vehicle around and place the other side in the shade. This will give you some extra working time—a perfect solution for the mobile auto detailer who is subject to working in the sun.
