    Default Iron X

    Used some IronX for the first time today. The wheels on my grand Cherokee are heavily coated in brake dust, the inside is seriously baked on too but ironx makes light work of getting rid of the brake dust.

    The iron x when sprayed on turns blood red when loosening and dissolving iron particles.

    Best effect is to clean your wheels as normal then spray iron x on and see that what is missed.

    Its also safe to use on paint work after claying to remove the unseen paint containments.

    No photos i'm afraid but Google is your friend, well worth purchase.

    Thanks Peter. I've been on the lookout for a potent wheel cleaner for some of the neglected cars I clean at my friends garage, I'll give it a try. I use the Bilberry wheel cleaner on my own cars which I have found to be very good as well.

    Billberry is very good stuff that i use for normal cleaning of the wheels, but together with iron x afterwards get all the bits that billberry can't.

    very quick test run on one of the mini wheels, which are absolutely baked on
    ave them a quick rinse, sprayed it on, left it, agitated it a bit and washed it off. a little bit left in the corners but it will clay off. bloody astounding note the attachments are in reverse order !!
