I used the Ice brand clay on my Escalade when the ceramic brake dust stuck to the side. It was the only thing that worked to get it off. Smoooooth as silk now. Great stuff. Now as far as Ice wax goes, you can keep it, it just plain ol' sucks. Stick to a good carnauba wax.

I used the ICE liquid clay bar. It was the biggest waste of 3hrs I ever spend buffing. It made no difference at all and just added an extra few hours to my waxing time. needless to say that was the first and last time I ever used it..

I have an actual mothers claybar at home (no liquid junk) which I haven't gotten around to using yet, but will soon hopefully.

The actual clay bar works best. I was never a fan of the liquid stuff.

X2! Tried when it frst came out. (ICE)

Mother's Clay Bar is good stuff, still have some of it left. Worked great on my Z28 when I had it.

I used the actual clay bar that came with the ICE kit, not the liquid crap. The bar works.

I'm a huge mother's fan... when I get my truck fixed (Paint the rockers) I'm going to clay bar and buff it.

I usually go with Mothers but got a Meguiars clay bar kit for free... I'm not convinced its worth the extra couple hours of labor

If you keep your truck nice, clean, and a good coat of wax on it, a clay bar won't give stellar results. Especially on lighter colors. Lighter colors (except white) do not show dirt like darker colors do.

After the first clay bar application on my old '01 Bonneville SSEi, it just seemed like a waste. I kept that car well washed/waxed year round and would strip the wax off every spring so it makes sense that most of the debris would not make it to the paint.
