Triple QX Fall out remover.

Hi,

I was on the Euro Car Parts site earlier this week and on a whim bought some of their QX Fall Out remover. I've never used a fall out remover so need to ask, do I put it on a wet surface or a dry surface? I plan to put it into a handheld sprayer bottle for application.
Also is the Triple QX stuff any good? I realise it's a late ask this having already purchased (but not yet received product)...

Cheers,
D.

Hi

Despite some poor reviews I find it a good product - I've used it on both wet and dry surfaces with no problems (though don't let it dry on).

I will certainly be purchasing again

Use it on dry as it’ll be better and more effective. I’ve used it and it worked well - I had a little left of another fallout remover and added the QX stuff to it, worked well as below :

Ive found the best thing to do is use loads of Triple QX fallout remover around the car initially to get rid of the easy stuff because its cheap

Then just use a bit of expensive stuff to follow up. Works extremely well and much cheaper

It's poor in comparison to the best fallout removers on the market. Will still work to some extent but it doesn't remove anything near the amount of contamination something like korrosol does.

Thanks all.
Some differing reviews but that's alright and to be expected...

Thanks again.

If you've never used a fallout remover before you will think it works great. I've used it on a well maintained car and got minimal bleeding. Rinsed dried then used one of the top performers and it turned purple all over.

It lacks the expensive chemical that reacts, if you don't mind doing a few hits it will work. I know we like to watch the pennies but I'd rather pay more knowing I'm using a superior product.

The active ingredients (the thioglycolates) in bleeding fallout removers is not cheap. Therefore you will generally find that the cheaper versions tend to have less of the active ingredient. This can often be demonstrated by using a cheap product and then following up with a product like korrosol or iron x to see how much fallout was not removed.

Premium products often only require one hit. Also often better to wash the wheel first before using fallout remover. Then the active chemical is working on the embedded fallout, rather than that simply sat on the surface with the other dirt. People often go wow when they apply fallout remover on a dirty dry wheel. All they are doing is wasting active ingredient on brake dust that could be rinsed off.

Great explanation, fatdazza. Cheers!

Are you a chemist by any chance?

Not a chemist by trade, but I have a keen interest in (and a little knowledge of) the science behind the processes used in detailing.
