    I've always used water with a droplet of car shampoo just for a little extra glide. Works a treat. Clay bar'd numerous cars and it is a fantastic bit of kit as long as you follow it up with a good polish and wax

    Dasarb uses bilt hamber I think. The fact you do not need to use a dedicated QD with it means that it works out a lot cheaper. I use CG's clay and use a demon shine/water mix as the lube.

    Yea BH for me too. It makes the competition look silly with the requirements for fancy lubrication, which you will no doubt run out off half way through on a bank holiday Monday.

    I use both BH soft and medium depending on outside temp and there both great. Its one of the few detailing products that auto express has got spot on.
