[DML] Removing Brake Dust From Rims



The proverbial challenge.  Removing brake dust.  I have tried lacquer 
thinner, acetone,  phosphoric acid wheel cleaner, etc.

Nothing has ever worked.

I was cleaning the steering and wheels on the 2015 D and decided to use 
some Johnson  brand "scrubbing bubbles" tube and tile cleaner that Gail 
said I should get rid of.  After all, it should just be strong 
detergent.    Well, it de-solved the 121,000 miles of break dust on the 
wheels!   It took a number of spray and soak periods, but it really 
worked.   The rims are clean and shinny.

As for the creases in the rims.   Again, a number of spray coatings and 
then using a rag on the end of a screw driver and the brake dust 
scrubbed off the inside spaces.   The rims look almost new.

I can't wait to try in on the stock D this spring. Finally, something 
that removes brake dust!
