Detailing – A brief description
Keeping your auto clean through regular washing, will greatly improve your vehicles appearance.
First let’s go over our basics, washing is the removal of loose dirt, road film, and surface contaminants that have settled on your auto’s surface. Getting smart, means understanding that it is always best to do things right the first time and with the least amount of effort possible.

Once washed is the surface smooth?
After washing your auto, carefully run your hand across the hood or surface, if it feels rough and gritty it’s time to clay. Regardless of whether your auto is new or used contamination rapidly settles on surfaces ruining a perfect shine and damaging the surface.
How to Clay, because knowledge is power:
Rub the palm of your hand gently across surface planned for claying to assure that no surface contaminates are left. It is always best to clay a surface in a dust and wind free environment and preferably in the shade never in direct hot sun. The clay bar will work fine even in a hot surface however dust and dirt can settle on the surface and risk scratching or damaging the surface.
Once surface is clean Lubricate the surface you are about to start claying very well with smartdetail and gently rub the clay back and forth with light to medium pressure. Continue to lubricate the surface; it’s always better nice and wet.
After several passes with the clay, rub your hand across the area you’ve just clayed to see the difference and also check for missed area. Always check the surface if you clay bar that is being rubber against the surface. If it looks dirty or contaminated mold the clay to a clean surface, and always remove and rough or questionable particles that may appear in your clay bar by simply picking them out.
Once claying of surface is complete spray the surface well with smartdetail and wipe clean with smarttowels or any premium microfiber towels. Go ahead its safe, feel the surface, if it’s still not soft enough you can clay as often as you wish until desired surface is achieved.
The surface is clean now its time to protect it.
