Authentic Merino wool wash-mitt FTW, only the best for my clients

Click the image to open in full size.

Using a deironizing gel, to remove the iron particles stuck on Justin’s car. Remember this statement I’ll bring it up again

I use a sponge to ------ it around, before that though. I use a box cutter to grit lines into it. So that dirt particles that may still be present can sucked into their instead of rubbing onto the paint. Detailing on the cheap 101

Here I sprayed some tar remover, I mean industrial strength tar remover. So I wear a respiratory mask for safety.

After that I use clay and clay lube to do a final decontamination on the car for what ever is left.

Justin takes care of his car, so it was in good condition which means it’s very hard to take the pictures of defects.
