Can clay bars be reused? Finished my car and was going to keep used clay bar but wasn't sure if grime build up in bar would mess up paint. Thx!

They can be reused, but not indefinitely. The trick is to keep pulling and folding them back on themselves--kind of like taffy. The idea is to keep the grit from building up and scratching the finish. The key is using a good QD or lubricant w/ the clay and they will last for several applications/uses.

^ Yep and even after all that you can keep using them for things like wheels, chrome tips and glass.
