Well you shouldn't really use a clay bar more than once.

If you think of a typical bar of clay, you can split it into 3 or 4 bars, this then gives you 3 or 4 claying sessions.

It says to keep the Clay well lubricated. Is there special stuff needed or is it just water?

Certain clays can be lubricated by water, otherwise in the initial post, it gives a list of lubricants

if you're giving advice know which ones can be and which can't  :wink:

bilt hamber clay can be lubricated with plain water

all other clay need a lubricate solution - I would recommend dodo juice born slippy

tip: if you buy born slippy 'refill' you can pop it into your own spray bottle... the dodo spray bottle that born slippy comes in is crap anyway

I figured it would clearly state on the box  :sad: if someone knew there was a difference, they'd know to make sure beforehand what their choice needs, sorry :(

no, it doesn't usually. please don't give advice unless you know the facts for certain or you have a considered opinion.
