I just applied the clay bar from the car cleaner kit onto my Civic. I was stunned (after washing it with GC wash) at how much brown ooze was coming off onto the clay bar, and even more, was still on the car itself. I even had to use two towels to dry it off, as I just couldn't stomach the idea of a towel with gunk on it being applied to the paint. Of course I would rub it on, then rub the back side of the clay, and then remold it.
My question is--how many times can I clay a car with the same bar? Each time I would remold it, remarkably enough the bar looked pretty darn clean. But I know that lots of little grime gremlins are hiding in this bar somewhere, and I don't want to place them back onto the paint.
So how many times? I'd love to save money and keep using it, but not at the expense of my paint.
