Does it smell? Sure, but what product smell? As far as I'm concerned, if it didn't smell I'd be worried its not working! This stuff is probably the best single product I've ever used in my life of detailing automobiles, wash you car - spray this on and watch it work, literally just liquefies all the metallic crud stuck to your car. Follow up with the Tar X (for bugs and tar) and you pretty much just got the same result as clay barring. A+++ product!

Does this stuff smell? Yes, but if you can't stand the heat stay out of the kitchen!

This stuff works. Period. Just used this today on tires with caked on brake dust that wasn't even touched by full strength APC, degreaser, or Sonax Wheel Cleaner Full Effect. Sprayed Iron X on the rims and the brake dust melted off, didn't even need to scrub it. Obviously there was still some brake dust in the corners but the wheels looked MUCH better after two applications.

And for the record, I applied Iron X to 4 wheels, 2 times, for a total of 8 rim applications, and used less than 10% of the bottle. 500 mL should last a lot more than 16 rim applications.

I also use this product all the time for removing iron contamination on painted surfaces and it works very well.

I took the cap off and inserted the sprayer... And wow this stuff is nasty. Smells like rotten eggs. It was so strong smelling I couldn't bear to use it. I hear it works great, but I'd rather take a few extra minutes with Nanoskin pad or clay than spray and clean this off a car.

I have not found a better product for industrial build-up, much faster than clay only. We use it on the worst cars to save time. It has never damaged anything.

I didn't purchase Iron-X for a while because I suspected it wasn't really necessary, but after using it I can vouch for its effectiveness. I did half my car w/Iron-X + clay (specifically Nanoskin AutoScrub SpeedyPrep Sponge) and the other half with just the sponge--HUGE difference. The sponge glided over the paint treated w/iron-X and claying took half the time. I haven't tried on wheels, but I assume the results would be the same. Smell-wise, it's terrible if you sniff right out of the bottle. Once sprayed on paint it's not that bad; smells like lemon-covered sulfur but not powerful enough to cause an issue with me.

I used this product on some rims that had a tremendous amount of brake dust that was cooked on them. Did a good job got a lot of the brake dust off but not all. Used 2400 psi pressure washer so had plenty of water pressure used all of the 500 ml. Maybe the rims were just to far shot, beyond repair. Did each tire 4 times and that does include scrubbing.

i cannot say it smells better as lemon, but it works like nothing else.

This product works great, but everyone already knows that it works. The big question is the smell, is the lemon really any better? Well if you smell it straight out of the bottle no. Straight out of the bottle it is one of the worst things I have ever smelled. However, when shaken and used with the pump the lemon is more prevalent and the product smells a lot better. Still make sure to use in a well ventilated area!
