    The most important think with claying is never let it run dry and try not to get it too wet. Other than thats patience, the clay is small the car is big

    However it isn't that hard work to do, much easier than polishing and very rewarding.

    if you drop the clay on the floor by accident, bin it.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    i clayed my car first time last week. tips i would say is like above, more lub is much better then too little, keep the clay warm in cold weather such as outting it in a cup of warm water before you start and i cut the clay bar in half incase i dropped it. hope that helps!

    Keeping it warm is critical at this time of year; let it go cold and it will firm up and marr your paint, so keep several small lumps in a bowl of warm water and rotate them frequently.
