        Eshine FTW! Oh and you can use sudsy water as a lubricant for the clay. No sense in wasting a $10 bottle of QD for lube

          I'm going to rename this thread and sticky it in FAQ as a detailing/washing guide.

              Sudsy water? I'm assuming that's just water with soap in it?

              it works as well as the spray stuff right?

              That's awsome if soap + water can act as a lube for the clay. I guess you'd have to rinse it off again after though right?

                If you're using soapy water as clay lube, make sure the soap you're using is a PROPER CAR SOAP, not something for your dirty dishes. Proper car soaps have lubricants and cleaners,where as dish soaps have degreasers.

                Put a few caps fulls in a bottle, put in your water and shake it. Then spray the desired amount onto the panel and start claying.

                You should be able to to just rinse off the car after. This is only if you're going to be following it up with a proper polish or glaze though (before your LSP)

                        I tried Autoglym Wheel cleaner and Autoglym Hi-tech Wheel Brush on my set I Work Vs wheels I recently purchased off Yahoo auction. I'm super impressed with the results! It cleaned years of caked brake dust and road grime with very little effort! Good stuff,FYI!
