Post Bilt Hamber Korrosol review!

Hi Detailing World Iím new to the group and a professional reviewer so I thought Iíd share some products with you guys. I have no affiliation to any of the products reviewed.

Review of Bilt Hamber Korrosol

As you reading this will know, when it comes to detailing our pride and joy there are no holds barred, we spend hundreds and hundreds of pounds buying all sorts of products and equipment in order to make our detailing session easier and more effective while the next door neighbours throw a bucket of water with washing up liquid over their car and rub it in with a sponge thatís just been dropped on the floor (each to their own I suppose).

Iíve used many different fall out removers in my time detailing and recently invested in Korrosol by Bilt Hamber, upon opening my delivery I notice the tall spray bottle with the fallout remover in this is probably the only thing I can grumble about, if it was up to me I would make the bottle wider and shorter in order to be able to fit it into a kit bag easier but at the end of the day itís a petty negative but hey nothing is perfect right?

When I did my first usage I thought Iíd use the land rover that my parents own as it gets used off-road and cleaned using an automatic car wash so it seemed the perfect candidate for a good decontamination, after a proper wash of the body and alloys it was time for the Korrosol to come out, at the same time I used a different fallout remover on another alloy which I wonít name as it will get its own review written up. I found that the Bilt Hamber bled very well and unlike the other didnít smell as bad, donít get me wrong itís no roses but more like a pineapple mixed with a touch of egg! The alloys I used were cleaned with an alloy wheel cleaner both in the same way and there was still some staining left over from years of neglect. I imagined the staining would be from damage caused by like I say years worth of brake pad that had made its way onto the alloy and it had started to corrode, after one application of fall out remover my thoughts were proven due to the colour the alloys went almost instantly. After allowing the Korrosol to do its thing for a few minutes I rinsed it off using my pressure washer and the difference was startling, after another application and rinse the alloys were almost like new!

In conclusion I believe this is a remarkable product, when you look at the cost of £12.95 for a litre from the Bilt Hamber website compared to other companies who charge similar for 75cl the price per product isnít that at all and the fact you can buy 5 litres for £52.95 which obviously works out cheaper than buying a litre at a time. Iím sure if you wanted to make it last longer Bilt Hamber say it can be diluted by about a third in order to make it last longer without any negative side effects like reducing efficiency, however at the price for a litre it may as well be used neat getting the full cleaning power.
I rate this product 9/10 with my only negative being the bottle shape like I mentioned in an earlier paragraph, this product will always have a place in my detailing kit.

I have no affiliation to any of the companies that I am reviewing, thanks for reading.

Hi pal.

You say that you're a pro reviewer?

I'm not knocking your review but it needs to be more specific and contain pictures relevant to the product, it's application and before and after pics to give the review some balance and content to keep readers engrossed.

Take a look at some of the other reviews on DW and you'll get my gist.

So the manufacturer claim you can dilute this with no loss of effectiveness, but you used it neat. what about a side by side comparison of a diluted application and a neat application?

Don't mean to be negative however I view this with some cynicism! For a professional review IMO there is a lot missing as others have also pointed out. A quick internet search doesn't bring up much and nothing related to you reviewing which i would've thought it would've if you're a pro and surely a professional reviewer uses a camera for high quality pics not your smartphone

As I say I don't mean to be negative but I'm hoping you're not just on here in an attempt to try and get free samples from manufacturers under the guise of reviewing as has happened on other social media sites.
