Update on Autobrite Very Cherry Wheel Cleaner

Hi,

I have been using Very Cherry Wheel cleaner from Autobrite since it was first released, it is the best wheel cleaner that I have ever used and do not see myself using anything else for a long time.

The cleaning power is amazing, even diluted as far as 10:1. This makes it fantastic for touchless winter wheel cleaning when it is simply too cold to agitate wheel cleaner on your wheels with a brush.

Anyway, a quick review of its cleaning power,

Firstly I made up a solution at 5:1 and found a suitable test candidate, an absolutely filthy one as you can see.





I then sprayed the wheel cleaner on,



Left it to soak for 5 minutes,



And finally I washed it off using a pressure washer,



To reveal the following results,







The results speak for themselves and if you haven’t tried this, you really need to!

I've had mine for about 6 months now and it's excellent.

Yours looks 'redder' than mine when applied which is weird. It's also very good as a tyre cleaner

Mine comes out white? Not pink or yellow. Works brilliantly though, glad I bought this coming up to winter, makes life so much easier. I don't even use a brush to agitate. Can't recommend it enough.
