Question In house wheel cleaning suggestions.

Has anyone found a 'better than average' home cleaning product solution too cleaning/removing what almost seems to be imbedded brake dust on the front wheels? My first attempt was applying several coats of MeanGreen and letting it soak and then using high pressure to remove the imbedded brake dust, about 75% success.


If I can find a solution that works and can use at least once/twice a month hopefully I can keep the fronts as clean as the rear wheels.

Not a home cleaning product, but Mequiars Super Concentrated Wheel Brightener is the best I've been able to find. It truly is as close to touchless as you're going to get, and for the cost to quantity, it's as cheap or cheaper than most home solutions.

Thank you. Fortunately I have an auto supply within 5mins walking distance of my home. My first attempt was no scrubbing but if need be I will.

I use dollar store oven cleaner. No seriously.. everything would not clean that crap off. I sprayed it on, left it for just a few minutes, sprayed it off, did it again. It actually helped a lot. You'll definitely have to scrub the first time to get it off.

I ended up changing the pads as mentioned by a lot of people. Stock pads dust badly.

Thanks and I have plenty of oven cleaner in my house. I will definitely be upgrading the stock pads too a lower dust compound when it is time for them.
