    Should be fine to leave it to dry then hose it off. The longer you leave it (up to a point) the more effective it'll be.

    If it's a bit sticky to come off, just spray a very slight mist of extra product on, agitate with a brush an then rinse immediately.

    Obviously this is the better choice, but unfortunatley my girlfriend has my pockets for the time being! :(:(:(:(: i have managed to get the wheels clean and sparkly with 2hours of hard graft, brasso (awesome tar-remover) and alloy cleaner which has acid in it. How do i get the pics on here?
