    You can i think.... but quick detailer is better and you can get it in large gallon bottles....

    Try bilthamer soft auto clay it only needs water for lube..

    Just use a bit of car shampoo mixed with water in the spray bottle. It's only there to lubricate, it'll save you waiting to go and buy some more detailer. Plus you'll be polishing...and waxing.....I hope, after you've clayed so it doesn't really matter all that much if you use car shampoo & water instead of quick detailer.

    The results are impressive, my 12 year old car has smoother/brighter paintwork than my wifes 3 year old car!
