How to remove Brown staining on alloys

Post by Geordie- boy » Wed Mar 25, 2020 1:34 pm

I clean my alloys every week or so but any one got any ideas how to remove the Brown stains that still remain. Autoglym tar remover perhaps? Any one tried that? As limited to products I have in house due to covid 19 lock down. Cheers

Any Iron fallout remover should shift it.

Korrosol or IronX is what I use.

In all seriousness, a bit of Toilet Duck/Harpic loo cleaner. The chemical ingredients are all but the same.
