    CARZILLA up in the NE. Same prices as online, tons of selection, super knowledgeable. I use CarPro Trix on mine for fallout and iron removal.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    How effective are these fall out removers

    My wifes car is a white Mercedes, and I find little specks of rusting iron all over the car (from brake dust I presume). Sounds like fall out remover would be a good option vs clay ?

    Not as effective as clay, both in cost and performance.

    Use them and then clay, or just clay - but not the just the fallout remover. It does an amazing job of removing most of the specks and iron spots, and the clay will take care of the smaller and harder to remove stuff. I’ve always done both as part of my spring cleanup, and I find it makes the clay portion easier and more effective.

    CT sells Autoglym Magma, it's the same thing as Iron-X.

    I do miss the autoglym bird shit wipes though.

    To not just be a dick, these days, basically all brands have an iron/fallout remover and carzilla has a wide selection of them.
    Carpro, P&S Double Black, Gyeon, Adams, Waxed shine, Gtechniq etc.

    I just thought I’d post it for posterity, since Iron-x costs like a billion dollars up here.

    I was trying to be funny but came across as a salty baby sorry.

    It is only $18 and the autoglym stuff is pretty good so good deal as ironx is way more expensive than now than when I bought it last. I thought the p&s was cheaper but it is $23 where as the rest of their products are quite cheap and work well.

    I used Autoglym Magma from Canadian tire a few weeks ago on my fiance's white car. It had iron, rust looking specks, etc caked on for almost 6 years and it did a great job taking it out.

    There were a couple spots left but I'm pretty sure I missed spraying it so a 2nd pass on the next car wash should take care of that.

    Much cheaper than iron-x

    No worries man, heck I'm just glad there's a way to get rid of those iron spots easily. I thought my car was rusting!

    Most if not all of the iron removers on the market use the same active ingredient of various types of sodium salts and they all do the same thing. The best value and highest percentage of active ingredient I have personally found is 3D BDX at ~20-25% active ingredient.

    Carzilla carries it in 700ml and 4L jugs. I stopped buying Iron X because the BDX product does exactly the same thing for significantly cheaper, and you burn through it really fast. The thing with many detailing products in general is they often use the same or very similar ingredients, and everyone just puts their own label on it. CarPro makes good products in general but they are always priced at a premium.

    Whatever you get just make sure it's non-acidic, especially if you're using it on paint or alloy rims. The iron remover will do a lot of work if used properly (don't let it dry) but if you want everything completely clear, follow up with clay. I've been using nano clay towels rather than real clay and I much prefer them. You also don't have to throw them out if you accidentally drop them on the ground.

    It's actually quite shocking how much junk is on even a brand new car, especially if it was transported by rail at some point. When the dealer gives it a pre-delivery wash for you, that's when a lot of the swirl marks show up because all they do is grind it into the paint.

    The sodium salts are actually just soap (sodium lauryl sulphate). It's the ammonium mercaptoacetate that reacts with the iron oxide. Another name for it is ammonium thioglycolic acid.
