Professional Detailer Reviews

If your detailing needs include heavy wheel cleaning, then I can't recommend the Sonax Wheel Cleaner enough. It's truly a fantastic product!

What makes Sonax Full Effect different than other wheel cleaning products is that it is designed to chemically react with the sintered iron particles (brake dust) that are on or embedded into the surface of the wheels. By dissolving these corrosive iron particles, Sonax provides a much cleaner surface than traditional wheel cleaners can do.

I get to test more products than you can imagine, and usually I just find relatively small differences from one to the other. Rarely do I find products that provide serious "wow-factor". I have to admit that during these tests, the Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner most definitely provided the wow-factor!

For detailers that work on a lot of really bad wheels, I would highly recommend having this product available to cut down on wheel cleaning time. Or for enthusiasts with cars that don't get cleaned that often, this would be a great wheel cleaner to have in your arsenal.

SONAX Wheel Cleaner full effect 5 Liter Refill

From The Label

Product Description

Effortlessly removes the most stubborn dirt such as baked-on brake dust, oil and rubber residues from all types of steel and alloy wheels (including chromed and polished wheels). Acid-free so it will not attack wheel coatings, lug nuts or brake systems. With lemon fragrance.


DIRECTIONS FOR USE: From a short distance, evenly spray onto all wheel surfaces and let sit for 3 to 5 minutes. The liquid changes its colour to red as it reacts with the iron particles of the brake dust. In case of extremely stubborn soils, use a sponge or a oft brush. Finally, rinse thoroughly using a strong water jet or high-pressure washer.
PLEASE NOTE Protect against frost or freezing. Do not apply in direct sunlight or to hot wheels. Do not allow to dry.

There is NO better wheel cleaner out there! Absolutely love this, and I love that I can use it without concern that the chemical will etch a wheel's finish, unlike other products on the market! Sonax FTW!

Great wheel cleaner. I've used this 4 times when cleaning my wheels as they get caked with brake dust. This definitely helps remove the dust and makes the overall cleaning process easier. I like that it changes color so you know it's working. The only negative is that there is not much product in the bottle. In my opinion, you don't get a lot of bang for your buck. It is not a cheap product and it didn't last me that long. Maybe I am using to much per wheel?

Either way it is still a great product, if not the best wheel cleaning product on the market for removing brake dust or any other build up. I would 100% recommend this product for any wannabe detailer or professional.

I have tried several wheel cleaners over the years and this is by far the best.On some very dirty wheels with significant caked on brake dust,I tried another brand of "heavy duty" wheel cleaner and it would not clean the wheeIs .I then used the Sonax and it removed all the brake dust.This is the best cleaner for very dirty wheels.
