Clean & Prep

STEP 2: CLEAN & PREP

Cleaning & Preparation refers to the removal of bonded contaminants that washing alone does not remove, resulting in a slightly rough feeling to the paint. It also refers to the removal of surface oxidation, etching, swirls and scratches.

Does your paint feel as smooth as a bathroom mirror? If not, you have bonded contamination. Generally, you’ll notice this contamination on your car’s horizontal surfaces and glass. Bonded contamination can be due to industrial fallout, tree sap, bug splatter, rail dust and a whole host of other things.

Over time, these contaminants will dull your paint and rob your car of its shine. Fortunately, Meguiar’s® Smooth Surface™ Clay Kit includes everything that you need to safely, and easily, remove bonded contaminants. And no, clay bars are NOT only for professional use. If you have ever played with Silly Putty, you can use clay.
