I found this really effective in use. It seems as good as my current favourite (made by another top British manufacturer and chemist) for safely dissolving the fallout.

The quality Autoglym bottle spray head meant it was very economical in use too. The smell is okay but no better than my current favourite. Both products honk because of the reactive ingredient but just have something in to mask it.

Overall, a great product that lives up to my current favourite without really bettering it.

First time ive used a fallout remover, and whilst there was minimal fallout on the paint it really worked wonders on the wheels.

I can't say I'm a big fan of Magma, it took a lot of rinsing to get off my car and still after rinsing several times there was remnant of Magma still seeping from shut lines!

There probably should be a warning not to use it with a normal hose as I was as it probably isn't powerful enough to shift it all.

That sounds like there was quite a lot of contamination for the product to react with, the product will keep on working as long as it finds iron to work with.

Bought some today, cleaned the car as usual with Bilt Hamber Auto Wash, rinsed and dried. Applied Magna and almost immediately it when a hazy white colour with a dusty feel, only very few areas 'ran'. Took ages to get it off with the power washer, felt really bad as our ressies are very low. Don't know why it happened but never had that problem with other brands.

I've always used this type of product on a damp car. Then gone over with a clean bucket of water and a wash mitt to agitate

I did try a damp mitt but it just made things worse. I usually use Korrosol which has always worked a dream. Bizarre.

I used it this morning on my white car, minimal fallout but what was there bled nicely.

Not sure if this is the correct process, but I washed rinsed, didn't dry and sprayed on the Magna to the damp panel then left for a few moments gave a light wipe with the washmit and rinsed no residue left.

I have had fallout removers dry quickly on me before where they dry white and are a pig to remove and now never use in direct sun or on a hot surface.
