The Optimum Opti-Eraser is a reinforced foam block coated in an advanced acrylic resin that mimics that paint cleaning action of traditional detailing clay with many additional benefits. Paint contaminants are tiny particles that attach to the paint's surface and cannot be removed by regular washing. Over time these particles block your paint from shining and reduce the durability of any wax or sealant you use. The Optimum Opti-Eraser allows you to quickly remove contamination from your paint, restoring the original shine and smooth feel.
The Optimum Opti-Eraser works by gliding over the surface on a film of Optimum ONR lubricant. Contamination such as rail dust, iron oxide, and environmental fallout will protrude above the lubricated film. The Optimum Opti-Eraser quickly removes this contamination without scratching as it glides over. Unlike traditional detailing clay, you can rinse the surface of the Opti-Eraser and reuse, even if you drop it on the ground!
To test your car for paint contamination wash it thoroughly and rub your hand over the dry surface. Your paint should feel smooth and glass-like. If you feel any grit or pebble like texture your paint is contaminated and should be cleaned prior to polishing, waxing, or sealing. Optimum recommends using diluted Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine as a lubricant. Dilute 2 ounces of No Rinse Wash & Shine into1 gallon to create a high-lubricity lubricant.
Always decontaminate your paint one section at a time. Spray an adequate amount of lubricant on the section and lightly glide the Optimum Opti-Eraser back and forth over the surface. Initially you will feel the slight bumps caused by the contamination. Continue working until the paint feels smooth and the Opti-Eraser glides without dragging. Wipe the surface dry with a soft microfiber towel and repeat until the entire vehicle has been cleaned.
The Optimum Opti-Eraser is available in two grades -Aggressive and Fine-. Use the light pink colored Fine Grade Optimum Opti-Eraser to remove light contamination from delicate paint systems. Use this, the white colored Aggressive Grade Optimum Opti-Eraser for removing heavy contamination quickly.
