Cleaning Those Wheels Tip

Cleaning brake dust a chore for me. And, I hate dirty wheels.
Using the Michelin product and then periodically using the Swifter dusters, makes the job easy.

Silicone spray lubricant does the same thing for a little less $.

It also works on the muffler to allow easy removal of road tar.

Best to spray on a soft cloth and apply to a clean surface to avoid application to brake rotors and tires.

Swarfega hand cleaner and brush works fine, and since you need to clean your hands afterwards that's 1 cheap product doing 2 jobs.

For stubborn tire rubber spots/road tar on the rim and muffler I also use an engine cleaner which you brush on then hose off (Gunk).
