Decontamination process

Could someone tell me if this is the correct way of decontaminating?

Pre-wash
2 bucket wash
Dry

Start with tar removal
rinse and dry
Fallout remover
rinse and dry
Clay

Cheers.

Hi,

Yes that's correct. Depending on how heavily contaminated the car is I'd be tempted to just let drip dry before doing tar and fallout remover. If it's heavier contamination then definitely dry before each stage to ensure product is not diluted. After claying I would also be tempted to wash to remove all previous products used before moving on to correction/LSP

Thanks mate. Just wanted to check that I wasn't going overkill with the washing and drying. Should get some more drying towels really!

You don't have to have the car bone dry in all honesty. A quick wipe over with a drying towel just to soak up any large amounts of water should be fine

Cool! I thought that might have been the case.

I prefer to use the fallout remover first before concentrating on any tar that's left.

As far as I'm aware tar can form over fallout but not the other way round and that's why you'd generally go tar first then fallout remover.
