    what to use to completely get rid of brake dust?

    my black rims tend to keep hold of brake dust even tho i scrub them, well hard enough i hope, the alloys seem faded slightly but when i get a cloth it seems to come of ok but is time consuming.

    Any suggestions?

    I use Bilberry Wheel Cleaner on my wheels, diluted with water and then use a sprayer to spray the wheels, leave it to soak for a few minutes and then agitate with a brush. Rinse and dry the wheels, give them a polish and then seal them. I clean my car evey week and the brakedust usually just rinses off.

    These are the products i use.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
