Got some in Homebase for £2.79. Not tried it out yet though. But after the shuddering wiper blades this morning with H2Go applied, might strip it off again.

Slightly off topic but would you use this or 000 grade wire wool to clean caked on brake dust from inside of alloys?

Thanks

I wouldn't use steel wool on any painted surface, you'll scratch the out of it. You can only do this on glass because glass is so hard.

You may already know this so apologies if so, but even though the wheels are called "alloys" they are in fact paint coated. So therefore the wire wool shouldnt be used.
A brush and a decent wheel cleaner is best bet. See the wheel cleaning section for more ideas. If its baked on and been on there for years, the acidic "Wonder Wheels" gets some good reviews. Just dont use it all the time as it eventually will mark the painted surface. Simoniz ultra care alloy wheel cleaner I think is another, safer one that works pretty well for the price. £4 or so in wilkinsons.

Fisrt place I tried. In my local one it just had fine, medium and coarse IIRC. I wasnt happy that the fine would be 0000 so didnt bother. I wanted a known 0000 grade.
