    For wheel brightener....my wheels are cleaned sooo often, and are fairly easy to clean....is it a good ideal to use a dilution of 10:1 instead of 4:1 ??

    I've read around and some people use 20:1 and even 40:1. since you clean them regularly, I think 10 or 15:1 should be sufficient.

    If you clean them that often, is your car shampoo mixture not sufficient to do the job? I got my car new, and I've never needed to use anything stronger than my regular wash mixture to clean my wheels - but I do appreciate that certain vehicles have more issues with brake dust than others.

    We're in agreement with umi000 here - if your wheels are that easy to clean and you do it as often as you say, there is no reason whatsoever to use WB at 4:1. From the sounds of it, you probably don't even need anything more than soap and water if you're cleaning that often and you don't have any issues with caked on/baked on/embedded brake dust. If you really want to continue with WB on these wheels we'd suggest cutting back to a 10:1 dilution ratio as that should be more than sufficient to clean the wheels and it will stretch your supply of product quite a bit, too.

    Re: Detailer Line- Dilution Ratio List

    ^ yea Michael/ Francis.....I know I don't need to use WB at 4:1....before i picked up a jug of WB, i was using APC+ ....using it at 10:1 was good enough.....and yea, using GC wash or UW&W also did the job for all 3 of my vehicles' wheels.

    i have bever seen caked on brake dust on my cars lol....wait til i slap on some BDB......gotta love Megs !!!

    so lemme get this straight.... for 4 gallons of water, you use 1/28 fl oz of hyper wash? that seems like too little....
