Halfords are selling 3 for 2 on cleaning products and I got the G3 clay mitt. Read a couple of good things about it here and used it once. Very straightforward to use and seems to do the trick. I'm not entirely sure that it does the job better than a clay bar but I was quite happy with the results. It's worth a try though for the effort that goes into using the bar.

Clay Mitt is very good if you have used a Clay bar before, ie a top up so to speak.

Yes, used mine after a full clay bar job a few weeks before just to remove polish and glaze put on incorrectly. Not used it on a "dirty car" yet if you get my drift!

Ordered a G3 one from Halfrauds.

Seems like a good idea for easier "claying".

(Accepting the finish won't be as deep as with real clay.)

The only potential issue I can foresee with the clay mitt - which, when I first saw one, I thought "why wasn't this already a thing?" - is that you can't fold over the mitt to expose a clean face, like you can a bar.

If I were to drop a clay bar, I could dust if off, then fold and squidge the piece to reveal an uncontaminated side - what if you were to do this with a mitt (thinking about it, they're probably washable)

I've not heard of a pro detailer using a mitt, but for DIYers I'm sure it'll be infinitely better than nothing at all!

That is one of the great things about the clay mitts, if it is dropped simply rinse under a tap or a quick clean with some shampoo
