    You could try car shampoo/wash. All you need is a good lubricant to stop the clay bar from sticking to the paintwork. I have tried shampoo/wash. It does work, but not as good but give it a try. Put plenty od soap/shampoo in the "mix" with water and see how it goes. As long as the clay doesn,t "drag" ( start to leave bits stuck to the paint) then you should be ok.

    Most spray detailers or detailing lube will do! There are quite a few clays out there which are very soft and you can just use water with them...these are always worth the investment i've found as they do the job abit better than the clay kit as they are softer.

    the detaailer is simply a lube... the clay is what lifts and traps the contaminents.. the quick detailer doesnt do anything but help the clay 'glide' over the surface of the paint
