Griots Garage Paint Cleaning Clay

Nothing gets paint cleaner than clay!

Now you can deep clean the paint in a fraction of the time with Griot's Paint Cleaning Clay. Remove embedded brake dust, rail dust, and other environmental contaminants without abrasives. The paint is left squeaky clean and ready for a coat of wax. Griot's Garage Paint Cleaning Clay is safe on all paints and glass.

Regardless of how clean you think your paint is, there are still contaminants stuck on the paint that you need to remove before waxing or polishing your paint. If these contaminants are not removed, they can interfere with the bonding of the wax and leave the finish looking patchy and uneven. Paint Cleaning Clay leaves behind an ultra-smooth surface that will make your wax adhere better and last longer, too. It also makes the wax much easier to buff out, reducing your "elbow grease" substantially.

Griot's Garage Paint Cleaning Clay is safe for all paint and also works great on glass to remove films and grit. The best part is that Griot's Garage Paint Cleaning Clay contains no abrasives. The old way of getting paint smooth and clean was to polish with an abrasive polish. Griot's Garage Paint Cleaning Clay cleans the paint without abrasives, so there's no leveling or cutting of the paint. The paint will feel incredibly slick and smooth.

Griot's Garage Paint Cleaning Clay is an elastic, highly workable detailing clay. The 8 ounce clay bar cleans about 7 vehicles, depending on the amount of contamination on the vehicle.

Very important: Always use Griot's Garage Speed Shine as a lubricant with Griot's Garage Paint Cleaning Clay to protect the vehicle and keep the clay from sticking to the paint. It also helps the detailing clay glide across the paint faster.

Use Griot's Garage Speed Shine to lubricate the paint when using Griot's Garage Paint Cleaning Clay.

Griot's Garage Paint Cleaning Clay and Speed Shine

Griot's Garage Paint Cleaning Clay removes embedded grime from paint and glass.



To use, just remove the clay from the wrapper, spray the paint's surface with Griot's Garage Speed Shine® (acts as a lubricating fluid), and rub the clay back and forth until there is no drag. Occasionally fold the clay into itself and reflatten to have a clean area of clay surface. Once the clay glides without drag, the paint is clean. Unlike other cleaners and polishes, no buffing or hard circular motions are necessary. Claying takes literally one fourth the time as using paint cleaner! Follow up with Griot's Garage Best of Show Wax® and your paint will look stunning!

Try Griots Garage Paint Cleaning Clay and you'll be hooked. The results are amazing!

An Easier to Use Clay than Most
I've been claying my cars for more than 10 years. Best detailing secret I ever learned! But I've found that many clays that I have tried including those from Adams, Detailer's Domain [two different recipes], and Mother's are generally much harder and harder to knead and use than Griott's Garage yellow clay. Until I tried several others, I did not realize the significant differences among them. The clays from Adams and Detailer's Domain were so hard, even after pre-warming them in hot water, that I had very sore forearm muscles for a few days after struggling to use them. [They might be good products for body builders wanting to increase their grip muscles!] The Griott's clay is stickier than the others, too. And the yellow color makes it very easy to see the contaminants that are removed from painted panels or painted wheels.
ProsEasy to knead and use, easy to see contaminants that are removed. Price is reasonable compared to competition. Screw-on lid storage container and sealed plastic film packaging within keeps new clay fresh and soft. I have a used remnant of a several years old bar that I keep in its original container and it is still soft. Not so with the competition.
ConsSticky enough that use with thin rubber gloves is advised. Otherwise, some of the clay is likely to transfer to your skin.

Good Paint clay
I love this clay. My second batch I've ordered. Glides well, picks up a lot, easy to kneed.
ProsWorks well on general paint cleaning. Haven't had to use it on the hard to get clean things though. Have nanoskin for that.
ConsNone

Use this clay when you wash your car, not just for waxing.
I've used this clay many times. I use it whenever I wash my Porsche, not just when I wax it. After I wash the car, I don't dry it. I use the clay over the water standing on the surface of the paint. It works fine without the lubricant, unless the paint is dry. After going over the paint with the clay, I dry the surface with Costco yellow rags. I fined that one bar lasts for dozens of uses.

Light Duty
This clay is a very good light duty clay for less contaminated paintwork. It is an excellent clay.

Mild Clay
This clay is mild, will do a good job if your car is new or has beenclayed before. I tried it on my newer cars and it did great. I used it on my 2005 car and it was not aggressive enough. Even with extra pressure it would not fully clean. I like the Speed Shine.

A Good, Mild Clay
This is a very good clay for light duty use. It is extremely safe and exhibits very little drag. It does not scratch or mar the surface. This is perfect for cleaning well-maintained paint. If you have some heavy tar or other contaminants to deal with, you will probably need something more aggressive.

Not impressed
I have used Claymagic, Megiuars, Ice clay, dp, and Griot's Garage clay. Griot's clay was my least favorite. It was to soft so it stretched out way to easy. I had to do a white Range Rover Sport the other day. it was covered in tar. The two clay bars I had were the Griot's Garage and the DP. The Griot's wouldn't pull the tar up while the DP pulled it right up. Start with a DP, 3M, or Wolgang clay bar. Make sure to get good clay lub though.

GOOD STUFF
I USED THE GRIOTS PAINT CLEANING CLAY WITH THE SPEED SHINE AND IT WORKED GREAT. I WAS A LITTLE APPREHENSIVE AT FIRST, BECAUSE I HAD NEVER USED CLAY. MY FIRST "GUINEA PIG" WAS MY DAUGHTERS SUV ( I WAS NOT GOING TO LEARN ON MY VETTE). IT WORKED SO WELL AND WAS SO EASY THAT MY COVER IS COMING OFF THE VETTE THIS WEEKEND, AND IT'S GETTING THE FULL TREATMENT. I DID THE HOOD ON THE SUV WITH BEST OF SHOW WAX, AND IT LOOKED BETTER THAN WHEN IT WAS LEAVING THE SHOWROOM. MY DAUGHTER WILL HAVE TO BUY HER OWN TO DO THE REST OF HER CAR, AND I'M SURE SHE WILL AFTER SEEING WHAT A LITTLE BIT LOOKED LIKE.
