Claying is done usually prior to polishing. It removes the bonded contaminants that can clog the polishing procedure. It should leave the surface nice and slick, ..
You don’t clean the clay bar. Once used it’s binned. Drop it on the floor as your claying it’s binned. Great...........No awesome product but they don’t last long..
I tend to keep a used one in a plastic container with clay lube in there to keep it very wet. When washing it can be used lightly to very easily remove dead fly and other stains ..... But it also takes the wax with it...
After claying at least wax. Or if you are polishing it should be

Polish going on today then . Car won't know what's hit it!!
Can you use the clay bar on the wheels?
Yes you can, especially now that ye ken you will be binning it once used.......hope you kept turning it in on itself during use which maximises its usage. Not that ye sound daft enough, but NEVER use a clay bar on paint that has been near wheels.......metal filings are bad things......
Instead of claying wheels, buy a good spray of tar remover......spray on, leave a few minutes, wipe away the tar, etc. Then seal with good wax such as Collinite.
Been doing some "speed claying" last couple of years. Very fine mist of Tardis type tar and glue remover left on panel 3-4 minutes then wiped off with fresh microfibre cloths removes the real knobbly bits of tar, which will only marr with the clay bar, infect it very speedily with big sticky black streaks and render it prematurely gubbered. The microfibre cloths get binned or used for shitty jobs, then the car takes half the time and effort to properly finish with clay bar. A by- product of the Tardis is you are completely dewaxing, ready for final wash prior to wax and/or ceramic coatification.
