    water will be just fine although you can buy some lubricant separately, hth

    How do I use Auto-Clay?

    Firstly, wash your car thoroughly using a non-abrasive shampoo such as Auto-Wash.

    Using a suitable container spray water on to a small area of the paintwork and with a very light, fingertip pressure rub the bar back and forth. Ensure you keep the area well lubricated with the water so the clay bar glides across the surface. It is important not to use the clay bar on an un-lubricated surface.

    At first you will be able to hear the particles being pulled away from the paint and you will feel the resistance of the contaminents. However this will rapidly disappear and the bar will glide smoothly over the surface. The clay bar will have turned a dirty red / brown colour as a result of absorbing the contaminents. When this happens rub your fingers over the surface. It should feel as smooth as glass to the touch. If not repeat the procedure until all the contamination is removed. Finally wipe the surface area over with a soft terrycloth or microfibre.

    As the clay bar becomes soiled fold it over to keep the particles away from the paintwork. If the clay bar is dropped on the floor it should be thrown away as it dirt from the ground will adhere to it.

    The clay bar will be sufficient to treat the paintwork 4 or 5 times. If you prefer divide the clay bar into pieces before starting work with it. Then if you do drop it you haven’t ruined the whole bar!

    I used water you just need to use lots of it as I found it runs off very quick. My suggestion is spray and rub very small sections at a time

    lol, i know that feeling

    if i were you i'd try to clay a small area with using water as a lubricant, to test how it'll work, just be sure to apply lots and lots of water and nothing can go wrong, hth
