I prob use degreaser!

tigra, Jan 19, 10:48pm
! Sorry I dont understand.

ninja_man, Jan 19, 10:49pm
degreaser, you can buy it at supercheap or warehouse. cheap way to clean the wheels and works very well

Bucket of hot water with dishwashing detergent in it.

Use the degreaser from supercheap, its pretty good. You will need to use a good scrubbing brush/hard tooth brush, lots of hot water and a lot of elbow grease. A water blaster would probably help to loosen some of the brake dust.

I just did 4 wheels,hard to clean type with Pacer Mag Wheel cleaner,used a tooth brush as well,look great. Its an acid though. Might have to watch what type of wheel its used on. Over.

If you realy want something that works well get something off a propper car cleaning chemicl supplier. I use monsta rip from Tranz Brit. Often no scrubbig is required when using a water blaster.

Brite, not brit. Used to be called car brite.

I know I started this thread off months ago but just bought a product called "Professional Mag & wheel cleaner" by Autohaus and its the most useless product I have ever been conned into buying. Doesnt do anything. Guess I'll go back to the brush and soapy water method.LOL

Tigra--Im heading down to wellywood at new years. Remind me and Ill bring a little bottleof the propper mag wheel cleaner for ya.
Its a citric acid based product--spray water on then the product-scrub it in then leave a minute and high pressure hose it off.

I just use sprayed on diluted Simple Green. May not shift the really bad stuff, but once the wheels are clean, easy peasy from then on.

tigra, Nov 8, 8:06pm

Super Rip from Pacer. Mix it fairly strong and wear rubber gloves.Will dry your hands out a bit .

Know what you're saying if it's shiny, but the question was "clean" not "polish"
If it is a shiny surface - you are dead bloody right after the heavy crap has gone.

Brightex was also another good one and was pretty strong too.

Self promotion is against Trade Me terms and conditions.Do you think you are above the rules!

supernova2, Nov 9, 7:29pm
Where is the self-promotion!Kaz is offering to give away a bit of a product.Its not somebody providing a sample of a product they sell.

n1smo_gtir, Nov 9, 8:28pm
exactly, kaz sells cars not mag cleaning products. He's only offering a sample of what he recommends and use to clean his cars out of kindness.

n1smo_gtir, Nov 9, 8:29pm
trolling and defamation is also against trademe rules.

+1 but water it down, you can buy mag wheel cleaner from them too.
