can someone post pics of one, does it looks like a soap bar, do you just rub it on the car and then wipe it off like you do wax? and how is it different from wax?

its the opposite of wax...it looks like a soap bar...you spray the lubricant (a quick detailer) thats included with the bar....spray the lub on the car, use up and down motions, until you dont feel any more "grit" being removed with the car, whipe the rest of the spray off, and SHIZZOBAM! it feels like it just got waxed cause its soo smooth, but beware, the clay bar removes everything down to the clearcoat, so make sure you follow up with a wax....btw clay bars are totally safe!

I use the exact same clay bar, and it is amazing
It will lift off every little piece of dirt and grime that may be left behind after washing.
Good for removing tar and things like that too.

I actually clay bar'd my whole car earlier this spring, then gave it a good waxing!!!
