Repco Eclipse Wheel Cleaner 750ml $6.99 (Was $16.99, 55% off) @ Repco

220

I'm always looking for deals on good detailing products for my detailing business. I've just ordered 6 bottles for pickup in Gawler, SA.

I've used this wheel cleaner in my detailing business for a while now and it's a good wheel cleaner that doesn't smell too bad and it's quite cost effective (buying in bulk and diluting still cheaper though). Would be perfect for the DIY detailer or just anyone wanting to clean their car at home.

  • I can second this… I have had fairly good results with the entire repco eclipse cleaning range.

  • Hi Op, how ready to wipe off does this one work? Any chance just spraying water after using this one and the wheel dirt is gone?

    • Spray on, rinse off can occasionally work with already clean wheels and a pressure washer but I wouldn't count on it. Nothing beats getting in there with a wash mitt.

  • Is this the same sort of product as meguiars wheel cleaner you spray on the hose off to get rid of all the brake dust?

    • Spray on, rinse off can occasionally work with already clean wheels and a pressure washer but I wouldn't count on it. Nothing beats getting in there with a wash mitt.

      The Meg's stuff is the same - it's still gonna need agitation if the wheels are more than just a little bit dirty.

      • Perhaps for a pro detail level clean u need a mitt. But for me the megs spray on and power wash off they come up sparkling and is good enough.

        • Yeah, if you were just interested in getting your car to look decent you could probably try it. I personally haven't tried it though.

  • According to the website: "The application process is as simple as spraying on your filthy rims, allowing the spray to work its magic for 30 seconds (for extra dirty wheels, agitate with a brush) and hosing off…." Sounds great if it's true.

    • Yeah most wheel cleaners claim this. It's only a thing if your wheels are already clean (i.e. you wash your car every week). As a professional detailer I never do this.

  • How does this compare to the Bowdens equivalent?

    • Wheely Clean is a de-ironizing product so works by breaking down the ferrous iron particles in the brake dust. This is more like a classic wheel cleaner. Given that it has a Corrosive warning on the back of the label, I would say it's acid based…not necessarily a bad thing but something to take in to consideration.

      • I've never tried Wheely Clean, but the Repco wheel cleaner does good even on wheels with moderate to heavy brake dust. You will need to use a fair bit and agitate well though.

  • Hi RyanL, what is the best ceramic coating or wax we can buy?

    • The best or the best in a spray bottle?

    • I can't comment on ceramic coatings as I don't do them.

      Waxes depend on what you're looking for - gloss, durability, ease of use, price etc.

  • Maybe add the GearUp brush for $5

  • For anyone still looking - I bought a couple and used it yesterday on some VERY black brake-dust coated rims. Needed a little elbow grease as RyanL said but result was spectacular I must say.
