I have just always bought the Mother's clay bar. It is usually sold at any auto parts store. You can get it at Wal-Mart too. It has always worked well for me.

great stuff. Yeah it took me about 4 and a half hours claying and waxing mine. PITA, but was it worth it afterwards.

Clay Magic, Zymol, or Griots Garage, all work about the same as far as I can tell, just make sure you keep the paint wet! If the clay sticks to the paint its going to scratch like a biotch.

The Clay Magic comes with a spray in the kit, but if you use a car detergent and water (50/50) mix it works the same.

The Mothers brand one also comes with the spray. I am sure they all work about the same. I just bought the Mothers one b/c it was always at the store. It worked great for me.

Windex seems a little harsh for car paint.

I'm another Clay Magic person.
