    As a general statement, D1801 will spread & coat larger painted surfaces better, and it has more active ingredients to make it a bit more powerful, hence the stronger smell.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much for the clarification. I've ordered a gallon of the D1801.

    Could you also tell us if there are other active ingredients in there and what their effects are? I notice the UAWC suds up when I agitate and dissolves non-iron wheel grime like crazy. Will the Iron Decon work similarly?

    Keep in mind, D1801 is not just a boosted up UWC, it is actually a formulated differently to focus on the needs of "Pros".

    D1801's primary focus is wheel cleaning, so it certainly has a cleaning package focused on the debris and grime that you find on a wheel along with the iron decon package for wheels.

    Of course, the iron decon portion/package of the formula is the primary workhorse when it is utilized on the paint.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Mike, that does help. I ordered a gallon too.

    For really bad wheels, after using iron-decon, what would be the next best product for tar/grease break down? Is this where D143 would help/contrast? I'm referring to that yellowish gunk that builds up in corners of wheels..

    Thanks again.

    A lot of the yellowish gunk that builds up in the corners is brake dust/iron deposits that are beginning to oxidize. D1801, with some agitation if needed, may well be enough to handle the bulk of that. You may find that in really bad situations you'll need to get into those areas with a clay bar. Wheel Brightener is also a great choice, but since it's acidic you need to be careful about the wheel surface. But for most factory OEM silver painted wheels, it's pretty killer stuff, too.

    Can this be used, or is this safe on glass?

    Obsessed Garage just did a pretty in-depth Q&A with Marcus Kleis:



    Skip forward to 2:35 for the D1801 portion.

    omg, at about 3:50 in he calls it "fart juice in a bottle" and I cracked up. He's right though - when I first ordered a gallon I had it sitting next to the couch (sealed) and my girlfriend at the time kept complaining about a strange smell when we were watching TV and blaming it on me.

    Would you recommend a normal spray bottle or the garden sprayer like the Rinse free wash and way D-11501?

    Hi arthur,

    A normal spray bottle works fine, like our D1801 Wheel & Paint IRON DECON Secondary Bottle, product #D201801. You are also welcome to use whatever sprayer you would like, i.e., a hand pump sprayer. A chemical resistant sprayer is recommended.
