Good advice and car products mentioned guys!

The AutoGlym quick detailer is good to use when clay baring well I have found that to be the case when I have clay bared my car.

I did purchase the AG car detailer kit when it was on special @ Super Cheap.

The kit did contain the AG detailing cloth which I found to be terrific others here may care to agree or disagree?

My personal preference is to use the AG car products perhaps the results speak for themselves?

Some years ago I used an Enjo brand cloth that was claimed to do a similar job and it scratched the first panel I used it on so badly it needed to be cut to remove the marks.
I am wary of unbranded cloths like this from EBay and will stay with what I know works safely.
The day Swissvax releases a clay cloth is the day I will be happy to use one.
By the way, if you use such a cloth at each wash Michel, aren't you simply removing all the existing wax and therefore necessitating a fresh application with each wash?
Regards,
Brian

I wouldn't clay bar more than once or twice a year. Especially if you keep your car in a garage & wash it regularly...

Not all my cars are waxed Brian .
This was meant for the vehicles that stay outside and are not 'babied'.

You are absolutely right.
It was meant for vehicles that are driven everyday or parked outside and not washed and waxed regularly.
