BLACKFIRE Clay Lubricant is designed to work optimally with the BLACKFIRE Clay Mitt, although it works well with other clay products too. When you are ready to start (after washing and rinsing your car first, and treating the bodywork and glass with both tar and iron removers), soak the first panel or window you intend to treat with it and, using next to no pressure, begin rubbing the mitt over it in straight lines in all directions. Initially you may feel some resistance (as the mitt encounters contaminants), but this will gradually ease until the mitt glides freely, indicating that the process is complete. Rinse the mitt thoroughly after each panel or window (to help keep it as clean as possible) and repeat these steps until all of the bodywork and glass is done. Finally, either foam or wash the car again afterwards (to remove all traces of the lubricant) and then rinse it thoroughly and dry off. Note that if you drop the mitt at any point you must immediately rinse it off, otherwise you run the risk of damaging your car.
