Remove Stubborn Brake Dust

Feb 19, 2021

With 93% of American Households owning at least one car in 2019, car care has never been more important. The answer to this issue has been answered with Automatic Car Washes. Automatic car washes may seem like the most convenient way to clean your car, but they often leave residue on your wheels. The grime that is left behind is normally Brake Dust, and it doesn't just look bad. It can also damage your wheel's surface by permanently etching it. We laid out 4 Easy Steps to get your wheels looking brand new and 100% free from harmful brake dust. 

1. Rinse Wheels To Remove Heavy Dirt &

Removing light dust & dirt from your wheels will allow you to more easily scrub and clean away the brake dust lying underneath. Brake dust will be a shade of orange, gray or black, depending on the color of your wheels or rims. 

2. Choose The Correct Brake Dust Remover

We recommend Pearl Nano Water Spot Killer for super easy brake dust removal. This mild, acid-based cleaner, works to remove rust, water spots, and mineral & fluoride deposits. It can be applied on plastic, glass, painted surfaces, and chrome surfaces. After applying Water Spot Killer, remember to always neutralize your working surface with soap & water or products like Pearl Nano Decon to prevent etching. 

3. Spray Your Wheels With Cleaner & Gently Scrub  With Soft-Bristle Brush

After Water Spot Killer has been applied to your wheel, take a soft-bristle brush to gently scrub the brake dust from your wheel. We recommend using a Pearl Nano 5-Piece Brush Kit for this process. 

4. Finish Your Wheel Wash

Next, neutralize your working surface with soap and water. If you see any missed spots, you’ll want to repeat the cleaning process again. And finally, dry your wheel with a clean Microfiber Towel
