    Just ordered it from Amazon , receiving it this Friday. Will try it out on the weekend. Especially for the lower rocker panels.

    I was going to buy this or the CG clay mitt as well, but then I went to CG store in Toronto and they said I won't be needing a mitt since I don't wash a bunch of cars a day, a clay bar is good enough. It was also my first time using the clay bar as well and its pretty hard to drop it on the floor, but took me almost 2 hours to clay the whole car....

    Just washed my car today after 2 weeks of winter rain. I used the nanoskin wash mitt to clean my lower panels and it worked like a dream. Just regular car shampoo works. Panels were as smooth as glass. Awesome product.

    Well, at least I don't have to keep folding over and over again the clay bar to "renew it". And it has a much bigger working surface. And honestly, I did my whole car in 50% less time than with the clay bar. That in itself is worth the added cost.

    Did any fine scratches result from the nano (using a single white led point source to observe)?
    Just curious 😊

    Not that I can see with my eyes. Generally, if the scratches are significant enough, you should be able to see it with your eyes. If I had to use the single LED point source to pick out a fine scratch, its not an issue. Over the time of owning a car, you will inevitably pick up scatches from the environmental fallout anyway.

    Plus, I don't wipe back and forth, rather in one single forward motion, and do a quick rinse of the mitt before reapplying. It is very effective, and unless the grit is stuck on hard, it generally should come off very easily with the mitt. It does not remove the wax or sealant, hence you can use it fairly regularly during your car wash. Hence, it should not require any laborious back and forth application of the mitt.

    Mav, you are lucky! Scratches do not appear as readily with white as they do with a black vehicle. I have clayed several cars and, unfortunately, the clay has slipped from my hand on to the floor . I just bought a clay pal which holds the clay in place but I will not have an opportunity until it is warmer, probably April at the earliest.

    Clay Disc for the Polishin’ Pal enables you to clay without getting clay residue or lubricant on your hands. One side of the disc has hook & loop

    Why do you have to wait until April? If you have a garage, you just need to have the car washed in an automatic touchless car wash , then use a lubricant product like Meguiar's and you can still clay bar the car in winter.
