For a fallout remover (to remove iron deposits that appear as orange dots on my white 1'er) I have just tried Auto Glym Magma. Very good stuff, normally use Auto Finesse but the Auto Glym stuff was much better and smelt ok, some of the others (carpro Iron X for example stinks. Magma is a quid cheaper as well :)

Iron X is my go to. Doesn’t smell great but does a great job.

Dragons Breath is great too but that really really stinks, so I just tend to use that for wheels on a big clean.

If you're looking for an iron remover/wheel cleaner that doesn't smell as bad try bilt hamber auto wheel, smells pretty good for a wheel cleaner and works really well!

I used to use Auto Finesse Iron out. Very good stuff just it sometimes comes out a bit thick and doesn't give the best coverage especially with the crap triggers in the bottles. I then went to EZ CAR CARE Reigning Iron. Far better than Auto Finnese works better imo and can get 5L for around £20 on their Ebay selling page. The spray bottles they give are far better aswell give better coverage. Doesn't really smell that much either.. ImageImageImage
