Mothers Clay Bar Review

Mothers car care products have been around since what I call the beginning. They remain popular and have a following that remains both loyal and zealous! I am a big fan of Mothers products and can recommend them to any driveway detailer or committed car owner alike. While I do not use any of their products at a professional level, they do provide excellent results. The following highlight the pros and cons of the Mothers clay bar:

  • Generally come in Clay Bar Kit only; this is a good thing as you get multiple products in order to complete the task.
  • Mothers provides (2) smaller clay bars instead of a single and larger piece of detailing clay.
  • Yellow clay bars are mild in aggressiveness and will suffice for most levels of fall-out except for excessively heavy cases.
  • Will last longer than product label recommends. (generally the case with all the clay bars)


Does Mothers Clay Bar Stack Up?

If you are a committed Mothers fan, then you will nt be disappointed in their version of detailing clay. As I said above, it will perform for any driveway detailer and car owner. It would be hard to tell the difference in the many clay bars available on the market today if you were blind folded and asked to use. One of the big differences is simply the size of the bars. Since I have never used one of these long term professionally, my only concern would be their ability to hold up to day to day use in the professional world.

And for all those people who operate under this philosophy then you needn't look any further than this Mothers clay bar review to see that the Mothers detailing clay will be just fine.

Darren's Professional Tips

Just like most areas of life we have what we are taught based on certain agenda's, and then we have what I call the real world. My recommendations and tips are always based on the real world, so despite what you have heard or read, I am going to lay out my professional tips that I know personally work in the real world:

  • Mothers clay bar will perform for virtually any person working on their own cars.
  • Meguiar's professional clay bar raises the bar in overall user experience.
  • Every car that spends any amount fo time expossed to the out-doors will eventually need to be clayed.
  • Most new cars will benefit from initial clay bar use.
  • Many people will cling to the notion that clay bars must be used with the recommended lubricant; I actually use the clay bar positioned underneath a wet/damp chamois during use.
