    Default Merlins blood

    Hi All
    Anyone heard of this product or used it (Marlins blood) for cleaning wheels. Thinking of buying some,or is there something out there that is better? Thanks

    Depending on how dirty the wheels are, I use Autosmart Smart Wheels for regular cleaning or Bilt Hamber for more intensive cleaning - it dissolves the iron deposits on the wheels, turning them purple

    Haven't heard of that product, I use Iron X, spray on wheels leave for a few mins and watch all the dirt turn purple and run off, never use when your wheels are warm though as it's a pig to get off---ask me how I know
    Spotless results

    The Iron X sounds similar to the Bilt Hamber stuff, but I think both of them would strip any wax etc off of the wheels

    Merlins blood works in the same way,spray on and leave for a few min then it turns red and you must use a pressure washer to remove it, been told it's very good and also kind to the wheels no nasty chemicals to damage the paint or lacker £11.99 for a 1lt .think I'll give it a try

    I use merlins blood, excellent product, spray on leave 2-3 mins and wash off, generally use it on the everyday cars but have used it on 599 wheels taking care not to get it on CCMs

    It stinks btw, I think it's got T rex Pee in it or some such and be wary of using it in Summer when the wasps are about, I think it must have some Pheromones in or similar as they come and attack you

    Thanks for the warning shame it doesn't have that affect on women

    Be interested to hear if you encounter any issues from her having sat for a bit. My guess is there won't be but interested to hear if there are.
