    Question Ultimate Quik Detailer or Quik Detailer?(Clay lube)

    I first started using Quik Detailer #QUIK16 with the clay bar kit it came with but now that bottle is gone but I still have a brand new clay bar and wanted to know if I could use Ultimate Quik Detailer #G14422 with the clay bar or do I need to stick with the Quik Detailer?

    Re: Quik Wax or Quik Detailer?

    You can use Ultimate Quik Detailer.
    Welcome to Meguiars Online!
    But according to the title, you should not use Quik Wax.

    Re: Quik Wax or Quik Detailer?

    Actually, Meguiar's doesn't recommend using Ultimate Quik Detailer as a clay lube. The obvious reason is that it's more expensive, might as well save UQD for creating a show car finish and purchase and use the less expensive and recommended mist & wipe product, Quik Detailer.

    I know this question has come up a number of times, maybe one of our super sleuths can track it down?

    Also, in addition to Quik Detailer, some folks on this forum use M34 and Last Touch as a lubricants.

    Here are some more threads on the topic. Don't know if any are the ones Mike may have been referring to:

    Ultimate Quick Detailer is amazing. I think it's better than the regular.

    Both will work great...

    I like using the regular qd or Last touch diluted 1:1. The last touch is great and at this dilution very economical.
    quality creates its own demand

    Again, Meguiar's doesn't recommend UQD as a lubricant for claying.

    FWIW - I've used QD which worked quite well. However, I just bought some Last Touch that I want to try. Many on this forum swear by it at a 1:1 dilution as a clay lubricant and full strength as "in-between" detailer.

    It just doesn't make sense to use UQD at $.42/oz vs QD at about $.34/oz, Last Touch at $.25/oz ($.15/oz at 1:1) or M34, $.37/oz.

    Thanks for making the point so well.

    So just to clarify, UQD is not recommended solely due to price, correct?
