Thailand Clay Bar Shop ? Where can they clean your car with a clay bar ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Do you think that it is really useful to decontaminate / clean a car ?

or just usual BS marketing to sell more of their $hit ?

 

Do you know where to do it in Thailand ? Bangkok or Pattaya please.

 

Thank you.

Can buy them dirt cheap off Lazada
They do work

IMO unless you have a real top end show motor it's a bit of an overkill, try good wax products first off......

About half of the car washes I've used offer it as an add-on service, most for between 1k-2k thb additional. Bangkok Car Wash used to do it as part of one of their nicer wash/clay/wax packages for under 1k total, was the best deal in town, until they closed.

 

As the poster above said, cheapest to get your own off-brand clay off Lazada or Shoppee, under 100thb, and use it with a spray bottle of lightly soapy water. If you buy a name brand like Meguiars or Sonax, expect to pay around 1000thb for the clay "kit" with a spray detailer.

 

As for your question of whether it's useful, it absolutely is. It's the best way to truly clean and prep the paint for wax, ceramic glaze, or sealer. Doesn't need to be done on a regular basis, but 2-3x a year is a good idea if you want your paint to look its best.

The best way to clean a car is to get rid of any road tar with mineral turpentine first. Then wash with a clean foam pad and plain running water. Dry off with a chamois.

There are probably millions of people who clean their car, or have their cars cleaned, using soap and detergents. Worst thing they can do, because detergents get into crevices and help promote corrosion.

Modern clear coats on cars obviate the need for elaborate cleaning packages, which are a waste of money.

Standard cleaning does not decontaminate car paint.

I hope that's a troll post, as a foam pad and plain water with no surfactants is a horrible choice for washing cars. Or washing anything else, for that matter.

 

Modern clear coats last longer than older single stage paints without special care, but that does not mean they look good for longer. If you care about swirl marks, you need to be careful with how you clean your paint.

And plain water can't get into crevices and doesn't promote corrosion?  Are you using a special type of plain water that only goes where you want it to go?
