Default Liquid Clay Bar

Anyone try it? I did.
So I bought Liquid Clay bar made by Turtle Wax and used it on my cars.
It is less scary to use than a clay bar because it is used like a car wash and can be scrubbed.
It leaves a sudzy film, so it has to be waxed afterwards to clean it up.
It left a real smooth finish. I never used a clay bar, so I can't compare, but I like it.
I am at work, so I will post pics later if needed.

I bought it, and then read the directions. Then I thought to myself: "Liquid isn't as good as clay unless there are some scary ingredients."
It went to the back of the shelf of car cleaning goods in the garage.

Mothers/Meguiars clay kits are the way to go
