Alternatives to Taris and Iron-X

Hi all. I need to order some more tar and iron deposit remover and for a few years have used successfully Auto Smart Tardis and CarPro Iron-X.

Before I re-order, whilst I have been happy with them, are there any others that are equally as good, better or as good but cheaper ?

Just looking for different options. Thanks.

Not on tardis as its dirt cheap as it is

For iron x I don't see that it's badly priced and still the best imo

Only use other brands when I buy bulk on a group buy or something

Nanolex for me (for Tar), it's also safer to use too.

Autosmart do an iron fall out remover, can't remember the name of it though. It comes in a 5L canister and can be bought cheaply. Only downside it doesn't bleed like Iron X. Still does a fantastic job though

It's called 'fallout remover' lol. And yeah its brilliant stuff, does a really good job and for a fraction of the price. Cam also be diluted to which makes it even more economical.

Autosmart fallout remover is shocking lol

Not just because it doesn't bleed, give a car a fair few hits, then use iron x and it hasn't removed much at all

Yeah can't say I was too impressed with the AS Fallout Remover either. Auto Finesse Iron Out for me now!

ive used both angelwax revelation and GTechniq W6 iron remover and both seemed to work well. neither of them removed all the iron in the first hit though even though the product was left on for 5-10 mins. both bled quite a lot hence the reason I know neither of them removed everything - ive decided to try obsession iron remover once the weather clears up a bit.

we don't seem to get a lot of tar on our cars so I just use wd40 to remove it when we do get any.

And needs to be neutralised and not just with water. This product carries on working if just rinsed off and can cause a bit of damage..
