The product works as promised. Cherry scent? Only if the cherries have been rotting in the sun for awhile. We can put a man on the moon but can't figure out how to make this stuff smell better? As others have said, wear protection when using it.

Makes quick work of removing iron particles. Smells really bad nothing like cherry. I recommend only using it outdoors.

Great product, will save you lots of time with claying. As soon as I got this I used it on a SAAB wagon (2005?). Washed all jams, did the rims, and washed the car with CG Honey Dew Snow Foam. Running my hand over the wet paint I could feel all of the fallout. I sprayed Iron X on lightly and let it sit. Used the wash mitt with soap and water and rinsed well. For larger tar spots I then had to hit with some Stoner Tarminator and re-wash the area and rinse. The Iron X took off 95% or more of the contaminants, I used it on the lower panels and the trunk. This 1000ml bottle should let me do 20-30 cars using it lightly like this. Well worth the money to save the time and aggravation of claying that much junk off of the paint.

This is literally the worst thing I have smelled in my entire life. Thank goodness it works! It doesn't take long for the liquid to turn pink after being sprayed on the vehicle and is easy to remove.

Oh gosh the smell!!! If you work with this product you must wear gloves and some mouth/eye protection. It is an amazing product however there is no way that you can do anything without taking precautions. I had various experiences using this; one time it was outside with slight wind, that was a no no. Second time was in an open garage, well ventilated and the smell stayed there for a good hour or so. Once you open the bottle it starts to fill up the room with the pleasant pleasant real cherry smell (not really).

As far as product goes, it is awesome and i use it everytime i do a coating, or once a year on my personal vehicles to clean the paint up really good. Highly recommended for some deep decon. of paint!

After reading the DI testimonals and watching some youtube videos, I purchased a bottle of Iron X and TRIX. This is the product that I've been missing all my life (all the cars I've owned have been white). Iron X brought the surface back to its original immaculate state. As others have mentioned, Iron X and TRIX will stain concrete - I found that a pressure washer easily cleaned the mess. Also, this product does indeed have a strong odor. I concealed the bottles in a rubbermaid container.

This stuff really works!!! You wouldn't believe it until you try it, I use it on rims more than anything else, leaves the surface more shiny and smoother. It does stink for the benefits of the product outweighs the smell by far. Would buy again for sure.

After washing a 2013 VW Jetta with 2miles clocked and my boss saying it was contaminate free, one spray of iron-x and 2 seconds wait, the massive amounts of raildust was extremely noticable. This product is just amazing! aside from the so called cherry smell that it really isn't but I can overlook that!

This was a really great product. I thought my wheels were clean until I put this on and saw all of the junk that came off. Would definitely buy again!

This stuff is the greatest. For the first time I caved and bought a white car that my wife loved, and have ever since been regretting it for all the iron deposits in the clear coat. No matter how hard I scrubbed or cleaned, the iron deposits were there for good. One quick spray with the IronX and literally within 5 seconds you start to see it work. No elbow grease, no swirl marks from washing so many times! If you can plug your nose and keep in a well-ventilated area, you will fall in love with this product. I will be shortly purchasing the 1L bottle for how awesome this stuff works. Actually too, I recently bought a white truck for myself after seeing how easy this product made cleaning my wife's car. Never will I again be prejudiced to buying only certain color vehicles... IronX is by far the best detail product I own and hands down well worth the money!

This stuff is awesome. I use it every couple of washes on my alpine white 335i. I never knew what the tiny rust specs (rail dust) was and I did not know how easily it could be removed until I used IronX. I highly recommend this item for pre clay prep. Just be careful to keep it away from brake calipers and wheel balance weights.

Best product I have ever used! Be prepared it smells awful! Well worth the price, I just wish I had purchased the larger bottle.

This is a fantastic product. It works quickly to remove bonded iron particles from painted surfaces, and also works great on wheels. This usually greatly reduces the time I spend claying the car since the IronX greatly reduces the amount of surface contaminates.

I will never do a spring cleaning again without this stuff. It worked great and made claying the vehicle so much easier. It was very easy and quick to use. I used it on a while yukon and had no issues at all.

Excellent product. Works better then you could imagine. And smells worse then anything imaginable. Great for hard to get brake dust or pre-claying as it will make your job much easier.

I bought this product as well as sonar wheel cleaner based off of recommendations. I like the fact that its paint safe so it's like sonar wheel cleaner for your paint and works the same! Only downside is I didn't buy enough and my spray bottle trigger broke. Just bad luck there. I used it on my wheels that were neglected for a while and I ended up doing 2 passes on my rear wheels and 3 on the front bc if the built up brake dust. I would say to get a protectant after you spend so much time cleaning with this product. No sense in wasting all the work.

I bought this after I read on of these reviews stating that this worked better than Sonax Wheel Cleaner, which I have already tried and was very impressed with. I bought the 100 dollar jug so I could clean my wheels and body panels. After using this stuff, I don't know where that reviewer got the idea that Iron X is better than Sonax. In my opinion, they both are equally effective. However, the fact that you can use Iron X on the body panels was reason enough for me to choose it over Sonax.

I used Iron X on my wheels to see if it really could leech out ALL iron deposits on my wheels. While it did clean the wheels just as well as Sonax, it certainly did not manage to clean off ALL the iron deposits.

So that's my experience. Buy it if you want to use in on your car paint, but don't expect it to be any better than Sonax with the wheel cleaning process.

Cheers.

Used this product over the weekend. First on a set of wheels [removed from the car] cleaning the fronts and backs of the wheels-worked perfectly cleaning every inch of brake dust and crud. Used it on a customer's white Porsche Cayenne [new car prep]-Iron-X displayed all of the impurities in the paint even on a brand new car. This product is excellent and a must have.

Effective, yes... did a fantastic job at what it said it would do. About that odor, though... it is DISGUSTING! I used it in my driveway and the front yard / garage had the faint odor of that "cherry" scent for a week. Use with caution, or use at a quarter-fed car wash then drive home to finish the rest of your steps.

My car is yellow and is the stereotypical garage queen (although I have driven her in the rain). I wasn't sure whether the Iron X would be effective since I didn't have any visible rail dust, but my water supply does have a lot of iron in it. Since I was planning a complete detail (wash, clay, polish, wax) I decided to give it a try on the body panels because I already had Sonax for the wheels. Fortunately, based on the lack of reaction it seems that my paint didn't have much iron contamination. I did get a strong reaction on the body panels behind the wheels. I think one good selling point for Iron X is that it says it can be used on both wheels and body panels, whereas Sonax advertises that it's designed for wheels. Also, be advised that one bottle can probably decontaminate two medium-sized cars.

This is a "must have" in the detailing product arsenal. Very safe, especially around ceramic or carbon fiber brake systems.

Great on car paint and glass - but the best wheel cleaner I've ever seen. An absolutely amazing product. Worth the $100/gallon price.

I bought this for 2 reason, first because my fiancé has a new white car and I kept seeing rust spot all over it from rail dust. It was driving me insane and needed to do something. 2nd I needed a good product for wheels that could really take care of brake dust. This product is amazing when it came to both uses. For the first thing the rail mark just disappeared after rinsing it off and for brake dust it cleans the wheels better then any other product I used thus far. I bought the 500ml first and then bought more 2 days later of the 100ml see to have some when I run out.

Today I had a 2008 BMW 7 series to do that was about a bad as you can get. Wheels looked like they hadn't EVER been touched. First I tried an over-the-counter $7 wheel cleaner just to see how much it would get. After brushing, it got the loose stuff off. But, then again, with a brush - so will water! Then I tried the Sonax Full Effect. Got quite a bit more off. Brushed it too. But the stubburn stuff stayed ... until I got the IronX out! Wow ... just, WOW! Wheels look absolutely new! Now to the paint.The Bimmer is white, so I wish you coulda been here to see the paint turn purple as it lifted the iron deposits out. Incredible!

All I can say is WOW! I have been using full effect wheel cleaner for 2years and it's a great product but this is like full effect wheel cleaner on steroids. I'm not kidding either. I couldnt believe how fast and how much it removes. It out performs full effect by twice as good results. This stuff is amazing!!!

. I recently used this product on my wife's Diamond White 2011 Mercedes-Benz GL. During my spring detail, I noticed a tremendous amount of "rail debris" along the rear hatch and the running boards. The rust blooms were very noticable on the white surface. I was nervous to just clay these areas so I ordered up the Car-Pro Iron-X. I thought about the soap, but after a bit of research, decided that product was not strong enough for my needs. The Iron-X worked great! Removed the rail debris with minimal work on a multitude of surfaces.
I purchased the 1L bottle and just poured it into an extra, clean spray bottle. I had no ill effects on any of the chrome or rubber trim. The only problem is the smell! It smells like the bad part of Sonax Full Effect wheel cleaner...terrible smell...but I'll use it again...maybe with rubber gloves next time!

Does exactly what it say it will - heavy odor, but a small price to pay for work it does for you.

Pro: Definitely nice to see all the embedded particles leeching out of your paint. Very simple to use (I simply applied to entire car (after a test spot), waited 5 minutes or so, then washed off (no sponge).
Con: Washing off was a bit of an ordeal as the product penetrated areas that continue to drain for a long while (e.g. trunk light area, most door jambs, side mirrors). I did more than a couple of re-rinses on trouble areas and several extra wipes. Not sure if I did something wrong, but I'd suggest budgeting extra drying and rinsing time.

I had to purchase a product that would clean brake dust that had encrusted and sintered itself to the aluminum clearcoat wheel....looked like someone hadn't washed the wheels in years. I would have liked to see it more aggressively attack the fouling but eventually, combined with a stainless steel bristle brush and 4 hours of work, remove the encrusted brake dust from said wheels. You can see the product react with the brake dust when it turns purple which tells you that it is working. Product smells nice although they cover their ass by telling you to wear a respirator (on the label). Most people won't need to remove hardened brake dust that feels like 1/32" rust on their aluminum wheels but if you do I have not encountered a product that will do it better than IronX....not muriatic acid (Eagle 1 Mag Cleaner), Turtle Wax F21 or Eagle One A2Z cleaner...the off the shelf cleaners work differently than IronX. Remember that this product has a 1 year shelf-life, according to the manufacturer.
