    Default Lubricant For Claying?

    Just wondering what you guys use a lubricant when claying your cars?

    Do you use a purpose made lubricant, like Meguiars Quick Detailer, or do you make up your own mixture of water and car shampoo etc?

    I seem to be seeing varying reports on how well home brew mixtures work, particularly with regard to the clay breaking up or disintegrating?

    Autosmart reglaze, works out cost effective as it gets diluted.

    Thaks for replying guys.

    So if you were using Autosmart Reglaze, what sort of strength/mixture would you typically use?

    The 1litre bottle has a measuring bit on the bottle think its 30ml measures it does. Put that into a scooshy bottle and fill with water and that should be good.

    Liking the sound of that. Certainly be a good bit more economical than buying off the shelf stuff.

    I use Meguiars clay, started using QD, then found the QD could be watered down 50%, also tried weak mix of Zymol shampoo and water, seemed ok. Finally bought a bottle of Born Slippy ready for next time.
