Question Re stocking need failout and tar remover

Normally use the Tarx/Ironx combi but wonder if there is something more effective out there? Only needed for a deep clean on the alloys/bodywork before sealing. Any suggestions?

BH Korrosol/Auto wheel - not necessarily more effective, but I've always found it to be a fair bit cheaper.

For light tar removal I use Autoglym Tar. For heavily spotted areas, I turn to the Tardis, but it's pretty potent stuff.

I been using Auto Allure Iron it out & it’s great stuff but really sinks! Carchem Revolt is also very good, for tar I’ve always used AS Tardis

AF Iron Out here. Used it once on a set of heavily soiled painted alloys and it did a good job, not perfect, but good. I didn't agitate it though which I probably should have.

For tar, I've just ordered Oblitarate based on several recommendations both on here and Facebooks Detailing Addicts group.

Auto allure do both and work as good as anything I’ve tried.

Bulk options are very good value.

I use Nanolex Tar after using a few tar removers ive got to say this stuff is brilliant.

The EZ car care tar remover is also one of the best.
