Iron filings in paint

Noticed Iíve picked up a few iron filings from somewhere on the bonnet of all places. Iíd literally just used the last of my iron-x on the wheels so itís had to stay put for the time being. Planning a huge decontamination - polish - wax once the weather sorts itself out but looking to stick up in a few bits in the meantime.

Is iron x still the go to for this kind of thing or are there better products out there these days?

TIA

BH Korrosol and Carchem Revolt are my go to

Ive recently tried KKD Ferrum and its also very good.

Much cheaper than Iron X - can get the lot in 1L quantities for less than a 500ml bottle of Iron X would cost you

IronX never fails me yet so no reason for me to try other brands.

IronX still does what it does well, but there is arguably better value available now. BH Korrosol is worth a look if you don't like the typical smell that comes with these sorts of products, as they have masked it well.

+1 for BH Korrosol or even BH Auto-wheels as both are safe for paint. BHAW has a little more 'cling' so is good for side panels as it doesn't run off quite so quickly.

Fallout remover. Dead cheap, without the bells and whistles.
