Just got 3 new bottles of Sonax, the scent changed, now it smells like hell. Reminds me of a dirty barn....ehh

Still works perfectly though, would not use anything else.

my first gal jug of sonax stunk really badly. on my second and third it seems like they added a soapy scent to it. Not as bad, but still smells like someone is getting a perm

I'm finishing up my Adam's (and it's worked OK) but I have Sonax purchased and ready.

It's very tough to know which of these cleaners are damaging to the paint though. It's obviously far easier to tell which clean the wheels.

Maybe the one that requires you to work harder to get the wheels clean is gentler on the paint?

I dont think that Sonax is harmful to the paint.. I have had no issues have been using it once or twice a week for the past year..

i do think that the cheaper wheel cleaners bought at autozone, etc are harmful though. The amount of R&D put into Sonax with pH neutral properties keeps me comfortable. P21S was also a good one--not as powerful, but definitely good.

Black Magic makes a pH wheel cleaner--I use their tire foam as well--those and Armor All (for exterior moldings) are the only "store-bought" products I will buy.
