been kneading it for a little bit now, threw a little bit of fuel in the and kneaded it into it and it softened it up some then started using it on my car. Stuff does work pretty good.

Probably some of the best stuff for cleaning. The more you use the putty, the better it gets. I've been using the same serpent putty for the past 4 years. The best. Don't put anymore fuel in it, just start cleaning your car.

That must be a cheap rip off of the original!

It is not the same and it is not a cheap knock off it has been around much longer than Serpent cleaning clay. My Uncle was a jeweler and often repaired watches and I remember messing with that stuff back in the days like it was silly putty... LOL...

I dont know if it could stand up to our fuel and grime as good as the serpent cleaning clay.

The Serpent putty lasts a very long time! My original stuff (maybe 5 yrs) still works, but be careful what you set the putty on as you use it. The more you use it, it will actually start to leave a little oil where ever you leave it. At home I keep my orginal putty on towels, but my newer stuff isn't as bad. This stuff is awsome!!!!!!
