Bare Slate by The Last Coat is the highest performing clay mitt that money can buy.

It’s “The Perfect Start for Getting the Ultimate Showroom Finish in Half the Time”.

Bare Slate redefines the way you look at prepping a surface, and will change your approach on claying your vehicle. Bare Slate is a hybrid combination of the most advanced technology in polymer rubber, with the finest premium microfiber cloth.

This means that Bare Slate will safely and easily decontaminate your surface from dirt, dust, tree sap, bugs, pollutants, and even water spots. Bare Slate works great on vehicle paint, plastic, rubber molding, and especially glass!

It's extremely versatile in that it can be used with any traditional clay lubricant to provide an effortless glide, or using a high quality soap such as The Last Soap.

To clean Bare Slate, simply rinse it well under water, and it will perform as new each time you use it.


Step 1: Thoroughly rinse your vehicle of making it free of dust, sand, and dirt.

Step 2: **Make sure to keep HIGH levels of lubrication at ALL times to avoid marring of the surface.** If using a traditional clay lubricant, apply clay lubricant to make the surface extremely slick and proceed to Step 3. However, if using a soap such as The Last Soap, begin washing the vehicle with either foam cannon or by using a wash bucket. With the surface still wet, clean out your wash bucket and add another 2-3 ounces of soap to approximately 1 gallon of water. Then, stick the clay mitt into the bucket so that it is fully wet, and proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Lightly polish the surface of the vehicle with Bare Slate, applying light pressure, similar to how you would wash the vehicle. Ensure that Bare Slate and the vehicle surface stay wet and lubricated to avoid scratching and marring on the vehicle clear coat. Re-lubricate at minimum every 2' x 2' area. See more notes below.

“IMPORTANT: It bears repeating, make sure to keep VERY HIGH level of lubrication at ALL times using the Bare Slate Clay Mitt, with very light pressure, to avoid marring or residue on the surface. Do NOT use the same pressure as you would when washing. A little goes a long way here. Make sure to read all steps below:”

1) Thoroughly rinse the vehicle making it free of dust, sand, and dirt.

2) Use only on a clean and cool surface, out of direct sunlight if possible. Do NOT work on a surface over 144 degrees F. Be on the cautious side with temperature.

3) The Bare Slate Clay Mitt should be turned over and rinsed regularly to reduce the risk of removed contamination scratching the paintwork.

4) At a minimum, you should re-lubricate every 2’ x 2’ area of a panel. Be very generous on lubrication throughout the entire process. A good rule of thumb to err on the side of caution is 2-3 oz of soap to approximately 1 gallon of water.

5) When finished, rinse off/pressure wash off thoroughly when done, and store in a cool and dark place.

6) In the event of any residue, use 70% Isopropyl Alcohol on microfiber to remove it. But if you follow all precautions properly you should have no problems.

Three superior coats

I washed with The Last Soap and used The Last Coat on my wife's eight year old Porsche, my ten year old Dodge Ram and my new Toyota 4Runner. All came out wonderful although I am very much an amateur in detailing vehicles. Older vehicles look much like new except for some dents in the Ram. Was out with my friend who owns the Toyota dealership and he commented on how smooth the paint was on my 4Runner without knowing I used The Last Coat. I am a fan for life.

Awesome products!!

I bought the Bare Slate, Last Coat 2.0, & CeraTrim. The Bare Slate worked fantastically removing all the contaminates off the finish, leaving a super smooth finish. After that, used the Last Coat 2.0. That stuff is amazing! It left a super slick & a deep finish on the paint. It also works great on glass & interior plastics- great stuff!!! The CeraTrim woke up all my faded plastic trim around the car. Also works great on tires too!! The best thing is that a little really goes a long way!! It does not take much product to achieve outstanding results!! For best results, I highly recommend to watch their videos for maximum results!

Heard about it. Haven’t used it yet.

Have not used it as yet but the reviews seem accurate so I can only expect resounding results.

I’m hooked

Initially bought the last coat(TLC2) to just try it out and see what type of quality I would get out of the product. I ended up loving the quality of the product TLC2, I bought basically all of the products and more than one of each. I’m a believer! TLC take my money! You have to try it and see for yourself! If you have questions there are easy to follow tutorials. I might not be the smartest guy, but I can copy pretty well. They make it easy to use and purchase. Love the quality you’re putting out!
