Fallout remover on wet or dry surface?

Hi all,

Quick question thats bugging me.

When doing a 'big' clean, id typically follow the pre wash + contact wash stage with a spray of fallout remover on lower half of car then allow to sit before I rinse off and get the clay bar out. Which is then followed by a polish of some description then LSP....

Should I be drying the car before using the fallout remover? I have a suspicion the wet surface will be negatively impacting the fallout removers ability to stick to and dissolve the iron contamination.

The fallout remover in question is BH Korrosol.

Thoughts?

I always dry before using fallout remover as i find that a wet surface dilutes the fallout remover.

Ideally yes. In short, if you apply any cleaner to a wet surface you are effectively diluting it before it has chance to do its work. That's not to say the surface has to be bone dry prior to applying these type of products.

Thanks for asking the question and for the answers it was something I was unsure of, I've used it twice and both times on wet paintwork and thought the water might be diluting the chemicals.
