Just got a new product in that I'm trying out. It's called the Hi-Tech Body Sponge, and it's suppossed to replace traditional the clay bar.
Here is a picture of what it looks like...
I got a chance to try it out last night, although only on some glass. It worked awesome on the glass. Much better than traditional clay bar. 1-2 swipes with this sponge and all traces of overspray were completely gone off of the glass.
Couple of things that concern me using this on any paint. The particles have really no where to go. With traditional clay, the particles just get trapped inside the clay itself, keeping it away from your paints surface and therefor, not scratching. With this sponge, there is really no where for the particles to go. It's basically a sponge with a thin film of rubber on one side. You use the rubber side on your paint. So scratches are a possibility.
Couple of positives...
1- Use a bucket of soap and water as your lubricant. Dunk the sponge in the soapy water and use on car. Keep dunking it in the soapy water to lubricate. While you're using it, you can squeeze the sponge to release more lubricant. Basically, just use it like you would wash your car.
2- with traditional clay, if you dropped it, you had to throw it in the trash. Can't use it any more. With this new sponge, you simply rinse it off and you're all set again.......big plus!!!
Anyhow...Just thought I'd pass this new info along to you guys. I'm still testing it out, and I plan on taking it to my paints surface tonight or tomorrow afternoon, and I'll post up my findings after that.
