Horrendous water spots on wheels no more!!

So I decided I needed a project for today. I got tired of seeing terrible water spots on my wheels and running boards from my damn sprinklers. I've tried everything to get rid of them and nothing worked. By chance I tried this stuff we use in the house for hard water stains on glass and hard surfaces. I'll let you guys judge if you think it worked or not

These just required some rubbing and the spots came right off. This side was the worst and it took me about 20 minutes





The wheels were a little more involved. The bioclean took off the waterspots and dulled the finish. So after using it on the whole wheel, I mixed some car soap and water, washed the wheel then dried it. Used some scratch X and finally meguiar's glazing polish and buffed it...all by hand!*

I'm gonna charge for the name of the stuff.

It's called Bioclean. I'll post the info from the bottle when I go back in the garage.

I only wear flip flops when I'm doing heavy construction

Wow John that worked great. Just a suggestion get a power ball polisher for your drill it works wonders and polishes great with the meguires chrome polish. I still use 0000 steel wool and chrome polish then wipe it all down with a rag. Then take a power ball to them after recoating them with more chrome polish. Works wonders on my rims.

The running boards are chrome, the wheels are coated aluminium. Chrome polish would eat up the clear coat
