Cleaning alloy wheels is often the least enjoyable task when washing a car, although this doesn’t always have to be the case. There are plenty of tools and products that make this job a easier and give you fantastic results. An example of this is the use of our Iron & Fallout Remover. So we’ve collected some top tips on how to properly use alloy wheel cleaners.

Use a pressure washer

The first place to start will be using a pressure washer, as this is a perfect way to remove the loose dirt and grime sitting on the surface of the wheel. This means that when you apply product to the surface, the product works faster and is far more effective at breaking down brake dust a grime leaving you with a sparkling surface.

Apply Gtechniq’s Iron & Fallout Remover

The next port of call is properly applying the W6 Iron & Fallout Remover. The benefit of using this on your alloys is that it has been specifically formulated to break down metal depositis making wheel cleaning much quicker and easier. 

Once you have hosed down the wheels, apply W6 Iron & Fallout Remover to the wheels and leave to dwell for around 3 – 5 minutes and it will then start to form a purple liquid. Once you start to see the product turn purple, leave it for another minute then rinse thoroughly with water and the process can be repeated if you are not fully satisfied from the first attempt. 

This product can be used in tandem with other Gtechniq products and importantly does not strip coatings or waxes. Iron & Fallout remover can also be used on paint and glass.

Always check your wheels

It is massively important to keep a keen eye on your alloys, as these can be overlooked when focusing on the detailing of paint. There is plenty of dirt that can cause more than just cosmetic issues for your alloys so ensuring that you are well stocked with W6 Iron & Fallout Remover is imperative to keep your car running smoothly.
