How to clean your car's wheels
Now it’s really important that you do your wheels first.
The dirtiest part of the car, but get them clean and then do the rest of your car.
Use a good acid-free wheel cleaner.
So, we have a separate bucket for the wheels.
Add some of your normal car wash to it, then lather it right up with the pressure washer or with your hose.
So, begin by liberally spraying the wheel cleaner all over your rim.
Wheely Clean has a unique chemical reaction with Pherous irons – that’s brake dust.
What it does, it actually dissolves it off and away from the surface, really safely so you can easily clean it off later.
Now you leave wheel clean on there for about 30 seconds to a minute, you’ll start to see that purple reaction beginning.
While that’s happening, get your other big brush and get in under your guard and give them a really good clean.
Then grab your little short brush that you’ve got and get in and actually clean in around the back of the rim, cleaning all those little areas.
