There is no doubt that using a clay bar on your vehicles paint is going make it look better. It does this by removing the buildup from the clear coat that standrd washing cannot. Once this contamination is removed your waxes, sealants and polishes are going to make you vehicle look even better. If you have ever used a clay bar before it can be a great tool but if you ever drop it or get and kind of dirt on it you know it has to be thrown away. If it is not thrown away it will scratch and swirl your paint, that is where the Nanoskin Auto Scrub Wash Mitt differs from the bar. If you drop the Nanoskin you simply rinse it off and you can continue to use the mitt. Since this mitt uses a rubber polymer instead of clay it will remove contamination from the surface but will not absorb it like a bar does. With this mitt you will be able to clean up to 50 vehicles. That is about $1 a wash to keep your vehicle looking its best.

There are a few simple safety precautions to follow when you are towing a trailer with your truck or SUV. Many accidents that occur while towing are the result of driver error and one of the main reasons is drivers not paying close enough attention to the road, speeding or not driving within the limits of the weather conditions. High wind can cause trailers to sway and present other challenges on the road. Read the tips below to learn how to safely tow your trailer.
Hooking up your trailer to your truck or SUVs trailer hitch can be accomplished in a few easy steps. Before beginning to hook up your trailer, you must be sure that the equipment that you have is correct for the job. Be sure that you have the proper hitch ball for the trailer coupler and that your trailer hitch capacity exceeds what you are towing.
If you do a lot of towing with your truck or SUV, you may have noticed how the rear of your towing vehicle sags due to the amount of tongue weight on the back of your truck from the weight of the trailer. Weigh distributing hitches help to even out this weight across the other axles making towing more safe.
