The Three Way method, for a total decontamination (outdoors)
Using the Claying Rubber with Three Way is our ultimate way for decontaminating your car nice and easy, in the shortest possible time.
Wash and dry the vehicle safely. We recommend to wash with one of our lubricating washes; Nanolicious Wash, Wax Wash or Auto Body Gel using one of our safe microfibre wash tools like our Wash Pillow or Shagamittastic Wash Mitt. We recommend to use a double solution of your favourite wash to make sure you're getting rid of as much dirt, oils and grease as possible. After you've washed the vehicle, dry it safely with the Big Green Sucker. Don't use any Boss Gloss or other detailing sprays on your Big Green Sucker during this drying process, as it can affect the next steps, and it'll also be a waste of product!
Make sure the vehicle you're decontaminating is in the shade and the paint is cool to touch. A well ventilated area outside in the shade is ideal. Wear some gloves, although the product doesn't smell of death, the gloves will make sure that your hands don't smell afterwards. If your skin is susceptible to detergents and drying out, this will stop it happening as well.
Spray Three Way directly onto a panel, or half a panel depending on how big the area is. Do this one section at a time and allow 1 minute for the purple reaction to begin. This reaction is the ingredients in Three Way reacting with the iron particles on your paint, and safely breaking them down into a water soluble solution. With these particles now broken down, they will not scratch or mark your paint under the Claying Rubber.
Spray a few sprays of Three Way into the Claying Rubber and GENTLY apply to the paint in straight lines over the lubricated area (DO NOT USE ON AN UNLUBRICATED AREA). You will feel the surface go from rough to smooth as the rubber polymer removes the bonded contamination from your paint. Once the paint is smooth, you know you're done and you can move onto the next section.
Apply more product as needed to keep each section well lubricated. You will notice as you work the product more, it will start to lather up. This is really deep cleaning the paint surface and removing the waxes and sealants. If the Claying Rubber becomes full of contamination (you will hear it sounding rough and not clearing up), then it's time to give it a rinse. Rinse it out in fresh, clean water, and then go right back to claying.
Wait another 1 minute for any further iron reaction (the product will keep reacting with any iron particles present during this whole process), then rinse the area thoroughly with water.
Repeat this same method on all the remaining panels, making sure to rinse the Claying Rubber as you go to remove the contamination from the surface. Do this until the entire vehicle is done.
Wash and dry the vehicle again safely to remove any remaining residue left over from the claying process.
If your vehicle has extremely bad iron contamination, you may need to repeat this process.
You will notice that the rubber surface will feel slightly more tacky after use, this is normal and part of the trick of how this rubber works. When new it has a powder on the surface to stop it sticking to the packaging, with this gone the now sticky surface can easily grab onto the bonded contaminants and be more effective at safely removing them from the surface.
