Ultima products are first class
August 17, 2021
I've been happy with Ultima products for several years. They seem to keep updating to stay current, I like the ease of use and results. My cars are restored older sports cars that we do drive, and Ultima lasts well.

Not worth the money

I was excited to try this product -- especially with the claims of being able to rinse and reuse if the elastofoam sponge was accidently dropped on the ground (unlike clay that has to be thrown away if dropped). The elastofoam sponge does not work anywhere near as well as a traditional clay bar in pulling contaminants from the paint. The lubricating solution worked fine, but it was the elastofoam sponge I had great hopes for. Just going by feel, I would estimate that the elastofoam sponge took about 50% of the contaminants out of the paint, whereas the clay bar I had on hand took out about 75% of the contaminants. The clay bar I had on hand was several years old and I wonder if I had used a clay bar that was more fresh, if it would have done an even better job. I finished the job with Ultima Paint Guard, which I love, just in time for our first rain of the season. By the way, I did this work on my 2018 Toyota Corolla about 4 months after I drove the car home from the dealership and the car had been parked outdoors everyday since purchase. I hope you found this review helpful.
ProsThe lubricating solution worked fine.
ConsThe elastofoam sponge did not perform any where near as well as traditional clay bar.
Easy to use!

The Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System was recommended to me by my brother. He has been using it for many years. I finally bought it and was not disappointed. Very easy to use and my car's paint surface never felt so smooth and clean. Beautiful!
Great alternative to clay bar

I've never clayed my car before, but always wanted to try it out. I just didn't like the idea of having to throw away an entire bar of clay if it accidentally hit the ground. And then I found this product. Cleans the paint beautifully without scratching. Removes stubborn bug guts, dirt, and other contaminants. Will definitely buy again.
ProsElastrofoam block is washable Don't have to throw away if it touches the ground No abrasives

Does a great job no worries if drop as you can hose it off and get back to work. Be sure to keep the paper around it. As it will melt in the bag!
