    Wheel cleaner?

    Just wondering what wheel cleaner you guys use? Was just about to buy some Wolf's Decon Gel after my highly acidic turtlewax wheel cleaner just ran out! I know there's a few professional detailers out there, so get involved please!

    Bilberry! If its good enough for Jim (White Details) then its good enough for me! Can be diluted quite highly too.

    The amount of product, that runs off the wheel and onto the floor. It just doesnt seem to stick to the wheels. Might have to try a foaming spray head with bilberry!
