    Anyone used the G3 clay mitt ?

    I used one today.....what a brilliant product .....very quick and easy to use and the paintwork comes out super smooth. :thumb:

    Far easier and quicker than using a traditional clay bar.

    I have one and find it handy for a quick detail, though much prefer to use a proper clay bar to really get to grips with the crud that accumulates on the car.

    As a couple of people have mentioned, £12.99 from Halfrauds, though a very good buy on their usual 3 for 1 offer on cleaning products. :)

    It's great, as with any clay, the bodywork will require polishing after, but I've noticed that this has a greater chance of leaving marring.

    I agree, the mitt is very good, but i prefer to use a clay bar, although i have both.

    No issue post the polishing stage, but never noticed any traces of marring with the traditional clay prior to moving on to polishing.

    Everyone has different standards of course, what one describes as marring could be perfect paintwork for another, glad you're not having any issues ;)

    Marring is marring regardless of standards :thumb:

    They are great. Used one for theirs time on the Vito. 4 years of ingrained muck and tar spots rubbed off no problem. Will go over it again and polish this weekend.

    Fair enough, a marred surface could look perfect in the right lighting :thumb:

    So I am assuming here (I can here you all sniggering) that if I use one of these on my car that it will remove all the existing wax/polish, leaving just the bare paint/lacquer?

    Having just spent a week cleaning Mrs M's Black X5 I now feel that I should have clayed the paint first. No worries if I have to start all over, but it would be good to know how to get the best results.

    Washing up liquid will get rid of any wax or polish

    Then clay it, polish it and wax it

    G3 clay mitt is far easier to use than the bar, excellent product.

    Got one this year... super easy to use and just give it plenty of lube (car shampoo and bucket of water).

    I am never going back to the bar, so annoying and time consuming.
