Pretty much self taught, but have a query!
 
Hi

With the help of forum members I have a good cleaning/preserving/maintenance that works for me.

However, despite being happy with the products I use to seal my wheels, inevitably brake dust does build up a little between washes. When I wash them I cannot get into all parts, so I wonders whether their was any technique or products I could say spray on to lift the brake dust etc, without stripping off my wheel protection (normally Swissvax Auto Bahn)?

Many thanks

Can you post any pictures of the wheels and in particular the offending nooks and crannies? :)

Hi

These! I don't use a jet washer; I guess that would be one solution.

they dont look to bad to do, how about a wheel brush or wheel woolies?

I would use a nice soft wheel brush. VW use very soft black paint on these wheels and they can mark easily so go easy.

These get good reviews from Adam's

Not really an answer to your question, but once my pads wear down a bit further I'm going to be looking at some different brake pads as some shed a lot less dust than others.

Take them off and then clean them otherwise invest in some brushes ;oke the EZ wheel brush /Daytona speedmaster,vikan brushes,wheel woollies and the one from Adams loads of options.:thumb:

A nice microfibre mitt like the one from Paragon Microfibre would help here, without harming your protection unduly.

Worth getting something like Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel to spot clean the stubborn bits.

Edit to be clear the mitt would be to use with some water and shampoo rather than only with the Auto Wheel!

Every time you're out and about you'll see various brushes and think "that might work on my wheels"

Basically you need a massive collection of different sizes and shapes of brushes and you'll find something that works.

As above, wheel Woolies look like the middle brush will work in the corners, or the small Daytona wheelmaster brush.

Alternatively, cut a sponge into a diamond shape and use that in the corners; less likely to marr the paint
