This is good stuff, but honestly I used this before and I also used the new clay mitts and towels. I would pick the clay mitts every time over the claybar. I get almost a 99.9% identical result and I do it way quicker with the mitts. Still this is a good deal if you like doing it with the clay bar. I still have one box unopened cause I made the switch.

Interesting. I was about to clay bar my car this weekend, but now you have me intrigued by these mitts. How many times have you used yours and how is it holding up? I don't mind dropping the extra cash on a mitt if I can get a dozen or so uses out of it.

Oh, and which brand mitt did you pick up? I'm eyeing the Chemical Guys fine grade mitt.

This is the one I am currently using. One of the first ones I could find locally. Normally online the Nanoskin has been around a lot longer then any other peoples products.

https://www.amazon.com/Eagle-One-...+clay+mitt

The advertising says it can easily be used around 20-25 times. I have used it about 6 times currently and its holding up well. Not noticing any degrading besides me not storing it properly one time and it laid wet on a piece of paper that stuck to it after it all dried out. With the Mitt I can do the whole car in about 10-15 minutes if I take my time, if im just doing a quick on under 10 minutes. Now trying to do that with a clay bar, I would have to have 4 people doing it. Not to mention a lot less cursing when it slips out of my hand or I put it down and it slides onto a dirty surface.

I am planning on getting this next, its a giant wash towel with the claying surface on it too. Not sure how it will work out but its cheap so worth trying it. It also has good reviews on amazon.

Also thinking about getting this for my DP from nanoskin.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...PDKIKX0DER

Just a word of warning, some of these tell you to prep the mitt before first time use, by either wetting it or doing a few other steps, just to get anything off it. I read a post on here in another thread where a guy clearly didn't read directions and used a different brand mitt without following the first time use prep and it did not work out well. I think the Eagle One just needed to be sprayed a few times with lube and run over with running water but im not sure it was a bit ago.

Hope that helps you out, but its been one of the best $25 I ever spent.

Neat improvement there.

The thing that is hard with the car bar is your hard gets tired holding it and kneading it and 1 OOPS and you will have to junk a bar if it falls on the ground.

Defiantly need to use wet and that is where the OOPS can happen.

Thanks for all you good tips. Just got a little toy Miata in mint condition and am looking to keep it that way -- your links help. The clay bar I've used once and it sure is awkward, esp. when wet. Gets grit in it, too.

I gave up on claybar once i felt the work of the nanoskins. Anything more you have to bust out the random orbital.

7 month old car and I see a lot of swirls and small scratches. Stopped going to car washes.. wash it myself now. Would a clay bar help with that? Do I clay bar then use wax? Or can I just wax my car?

Clay bar won't help with that, swirls are from scratches in your clear coat which require polishing to fix. Try meguiars ultimate compound as a single stage remedy but you must clay prior to compounding. Can be done by hand but having a dual action polisher makes it a lot easier

Been using these kits for many years. Comes with two very nice clay bars but I think it's time I tried the mitt. Heck of a lot cheaper and faster if it works well!!!

Great info mate!

I have a question: If I claybar or clay mitt my car, do I need to wax and/or polish my car after?
