This wheel cleaner is a staple in many detailing arsenals. It's easy to understand why; it simply works well and remains relatively cost effective in doing so. It's acid free, so there are no worries with regard to sensitive wheel finishes.
If your car (or your customers' cars) make blasphemous amounts of brake dust, Sonax Wheel Cleaner is a powerful weapon against those stubborn embedded iron particles. Simply spray it on wheels that are cool to the touch, allow it to dwell for 3-5 minutes, and rinse it off. This wheel cleaner leaves the bottle in a fluorescent green color to help locate where product has been applied, and turns a deep plum color as it reacts with and releases iron particles.
For more heavily soiled wheels, use your wheel brushes of choice to agitate or consider the stronger formulation, Sonax Wheel Cleaner PLUS.
Direction for use:
From a short distance, apply evenly to a cool, dry wheel surface and let sit for 3-5 minutes. The liquid changes its color to red as it reacts with the iron particles of the brake dust. In case of extremely stubborn soil, use a sponge or soft brush to gently agitate. Finally, rinse thoroughly using a string water jet or high-pressure washer.
Protect against freezing. Do NOT apply in direct sunlight or to hot wheels. Do NOT allow to dry on wheels.
