ice clay bar

So i used the new ice clay bar, first thing is it isnt a bar of clay its a pad and liquid................ anyway, it does remove tar,sap,dirty paint ect ect.You wash your truck,apply the liquid,buff it in, then wash it off.
Ive a black truck and i found it wasnt as good as mothers clay bar but it worked pretty good.You get a bottle of liquid clay bar, i used a very small amount so im guessing you have about 10-13 uses,which is good value imo($14)
If you use the ice polish aswell you get a very good finsh but i find its a mother****** to buff off clean.
Anyone else used this product?

Just used it on my black 04 Explorer Eddie Bauer and it worked great. I do agree that it was not too easy to buff out, but it works decent. I love the meguiers 3 step system way more, but 2 steps clay and polish are easier than 3. I was hesitant on the spray detailer as it was close to $9 But in all, good product

good to hear about the Ice stuff. I bought a bottle of it this week and I'm dying to see how it'll look on my black paint!

i dont see how a liquid could perform the same as an actual bar of automotive clay... anyone have any 'vs real clay bar' experience?

Ive used both, ice is faster but you have to work on getting a spots off the paint,tar,sap ect ect buffing the spot over and over untill the stain has gone.Clay bar has about three goes before you have to replace it, ice has about 12-15(best guess).

Both products give great results imo,ice is the best value for money.
