Brown Royal Wheel Cleaner.

So i had seen some videos on youtube about this stuff and it seemed to work extremely well so i decided to buy a bottle and give it a shot.

My first test is the oil spot on my concrete driveway that was starting to get pretty bad even though iv been trying to keep it under control with engine degreaser and Dawn dish washing soap still leaving a dark stain.

After spraying just a little bit of the stuff on the stain and brushing it down with my shop broom then rinsing with the hose the stain is almost completely gone so for now im very impressed and once the wife gets home from work i will test it on my wheels that really need a good cleaning to remove the heavy break dust and road grime.

I think its going to kick the road grime and break dusts ass.

I was looking for that stuff yesterday. They don't sell it anywhere in my town.

edit:

No wonder. It looks like it is only sold through there website flashwax.com

I found them via facebook of all sources.

I've seen the videos and it looks like some pretty amazing stuff. I think I'll wait to see hear your results and then go from there. The 1 gallon looks to be a good value. I've got plenty of wheels to clean. Magic Eraser does a pretty good job but I'm lazy, and at about $1 per pad they add up quick.

Do they scratch the wheels? I know when I use them on leather they take off a bit of the material off.

Big thing is it's NON-acid forumla. The meguairs wheel brightener is crazy acid based and you have to wear a respirator to use it.

Thats one of the main reasons why i chose to try this stuff was the non acid formula do to the fact that had a bad accident with a bottle of acid based cleaner many years ago and got burned pretty bad on one of my legs.

They are pretty harmless on metals. On leather they will do some damage.

Well the stuff works great!!!

I didn't do any scrubbing on this wheel just the cleaner and a hose down for the first test but i can already tell that with some light brushing they will come out crystal clean with very little effort.

I will do a complete cleaning this weekend when i have the time to take the wheels off.

Not sure what shipping would be to Canada but it was $9.00 to my door and the company is only 116 miles from me here in FL.

They calculate the shipping after you place the order and send it to you by E-Mail for you to decide to finalize the order.

Its kind of stupid if you ask me.

The break dust started to run right off the second i sprayed it on the wheel i was really amazed .

I think im going to do a small 50/50 mix to see how well it works diluted with water.
