I've clayed a few times, check the edge of the clay after you have rubbed part of the car, if your clay is a light colour you can see the dirt starting to build up, you should fold the clay every few wipes.
Try it yourself, its not that hard.....if you have the time that is.
It cant be cheap getting someone in Knightsbridge to detail your car?
