What wheel cleaners are everyone using?

I've just been using some cheapo stuff I picked up at Costco ages back but it's shite so need something better.
I still haven't found a better wheel cleaner than Meguiars Ultimate wheel cleaner. Tried Geo Gel from EZ and i really don't rate it. Does an OK job but still requires tonnes of agitation.

Yeah the paint was good. Just used some R222 paint cleanser. Was only a play really see what the fuss is about.

Will strip it down again as I want to compound.

Following on from me asking about cleaning stained anodised parts up, my bells came up nice with some apc and a scrub pad. Unfortunately the calipers are stained for good although I never tried a polish


Just need to get my stuck spacers off next time

I'm sure you can get aluminium polish to sort the calipers.

Use a rubber mallet/plastic deadblow hammer to t**t the spacers, they'll come off.

Random question which I'm sure is on Google but I prefer to ask you chaps. The jet wash on sealant like Polar Seal. Can it be hosed off or does it definitely need to be jet washed?

Has anyone tried Chemical Guys Honeydew snow foam? I've only got a small amount of Bilt Hamber snow foam left and I'm not planning on getting more as it doesn't foam up particularly well, or doesn't stick well should I say.

Kenotek snow foam is brilliant stuff as well, very economical, I can foam about five cars from a 700ml foam bottle and it smells awesome, whole street smells of apple!

But cleans brilliantly. :)

Im using valet Pro pH foam. Would buy again.
Hows the ValetPro cleaning? I've got loads of random foams. Gtechniq, random foams, polar foam and bilt hamber. BH has by far the best cleaning imo but im up for trying something new. Just don't want something that's just for show y'know?
