    Using Clay Bar with water

    Hi all. I've been using this method for a year now. I only use water with the clay bar to clean the surface and I have very good results. Anyone use this way too. My friend which is a spray painter teach me this way one. So do you think this way is wrong? As I've been reading this thread and all of you all use with the detailer... I bought my meguiars clay bar tht time also came without the detailer. It was the Mirror glaze one light blue colour clay bar. So I just had been using it with water till today. Is it ok? Thks.

    Meguiars tends to say it is best to have some sort of lubrication, as in a soap or detailer spray, not just water alone.

    The idea being, if you picked up any sharp, or large bits on the clay, the water wouldnt provide enough lubrication, an you could put swirls in your paint.

    Oh ic ok. I also did wash the clay bar with soap after using it and it did become a bit cleaner after tht. Guess I'm lucky till now tht did not pick up those larger contamination. Hehehe. Thks a lot.

    I usually use water also. My paint is in good shape as in not to many bonded stuff on the paint. It may be a good idea to use QD or soap if the paint is really rough..
