What is it:
Taken from the Buff it UK website; Designed for pretreatment of Alloy Wheels. Buff it Bleeding Wheel Cleaner is a pH balanced formula designed to change colour when dissolving brake dust and Iron contaminants. Fast and effective pre-wash treatment to help clean Alloy Wheels.
How we tested it:
We were kindly sent a 250ml sample of bleeding wheel cleaner by the Buff it team to assess. We did so by using on a variety of wheels and also observed it as a dedicated fallout remover after another wheel cleaner. We looked at reaction time, cleaning effectiveness and its general place.
We didn't like:
We are a little confused by the bleeding wheel cleaner from Buff It. In essence, it is a fallout remover, designed to remove brake and iron deposits yet is marketed as a pre-treatment. When using as a pre-treatment, much is wasted landing on dust and general dirt before doing its thing on the iron and brake contaminants. We found the product far better used as a post wheel cleaning fallout type treatment. As a fallout remover it is very effective, cleaning and removing fallout from wheels as well as any other we have used and better than many rivals all for a great price. We think a potential rebrand here would see the products place more understood but overall a good product.
