Drivers who want to give their car the ultimate detailing job should invest in clay bars to help get rid of the tell-tale signs of wear and tear to the paint job.
Marc Howe, writing on the Top Cool Cars blog, said that paint vortexes and brake dust can take their toll on a motor’s bodywork and that a clay bar is just the tool for revitalising the vehicle.
Among the car exterior care products drivers will need to invest in are a clay bar and clay lubricant.
"If you want to give [a] new, shiny look to your car, claying would be of great help. It will remove all the contaminants and swirls from the paint and make it look more smooth and shiny," Mr Howe added.
Going the extra mile with a car’s paint job could see the owner get a second date with a potential partner.
A recent study by webuyanycar.com found that 40 per cent of people would be put off someone who picked them up in a car which was scruffy and smelt bad.
