Welcome back to the Proje’ blog!
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll have read our Decon product focus from last week. Now, Decon is great for a few reasons: it focuses specifically on breaking down iron build-up from brake dust. It also works on both visible and invisible deposit build-ups, letting you know when it’s finished working by changing color to a delightful shade of purple! This allows for more effective decontamination, ensuring that painted and metallic surfaces aren’t left to progressively corrode even after regular detailing services.
Red Flags Mean Go!
Redline Wheel Cleaner is also a color-changing, magical part of the Proje’ armoury, and it also focuses on your wheels. So, it would easy to confuse them a bit, but they are subtly different products, for subtly different things. While Decon targets iron, Redline wheel cleaner is extremely tough on embedded debris and particles of all kinds, breaking down the worst of the build-up in the toughest areas to reach – the undercarriage, the brake parts and the wheel wells. The active ingredients in the cleaner neutralize any acidic presence, allowing for a smooth wipe clean and an end to any danger of long-lasting damage.
Put simply, use Redline for your everyday debris, and Decon for a specific targeting of iron-related build-up in sports and high-performance vehicles. Simple, right? Let’s take a look at how to use it.
Getting down to business
So, first off, you might as well deal with your wheels while you’re washing your car. So, check out our Vital Car Wash Soap and get two jobs done at once.
Now, with Redline, apply it liberally to the area you want to target. Be as liberal as you can – you want to completely saturate the area you want to clean, asthe product works best when a full covering has been established. Remember to work out of direct sunlight, andput on a pair of gloves.
Now everything has been applied,wait a minute or so for the liquid to settle, then we’re going to get to the physical work. Grab our Proje Wheel Woolies to create a bit of friction. And you will see the wheel cleaner start to lather; keep going until you have thickened the lather over every part of the area you’re cleaning.
Again, pause for a bit and watch the bubbling. This is the active chemical in our cleaner neutralizing any acidic build-ups, so that they strip away without any problems. As the cleaner really starts to take effect, it will start to turn red. This is the active sodium reacting, and it shows that our product is working on your vehicle. The red is your clue that everything is going well! And once the whole area has turned red, then give everything a rinse down, using that wheel woolieto get into the nooks and crannies, so everything is washed away and all the layers of dirt have gone.
And remember, repeat if necessary. Then, once you’re happy, it’s time to dry everything so that you don’t get any water stain effects. Using a regular towel with the wrong GSM could exacerbate staining or even create minor scratching on your rims. Use our Black Mamba wheel and trim towel – it’s been designed to clean and dry tyres and rims without any staining or scratching, and its colour will allow for multiple uses, meaning that you don’t go through hundreds of towels a year.
And that’s it – go ahead and take a look at our fantastic Redline Wheel Cleaner for only $10.99 per 16oz. bottle. And for all the accessories you need, check out the wheel cleaning kit for just $38.97!
