How to Clean Brake Dust

When properly cleaned and polished, car rims can shine with chrome-like beauty. Proper maintenance of your wheels and rims are important to avoid pitting and corrosion caused by accumulation of dirt and contaminants like brake dust. Brake dust is comprised of carbon fibers that rub off the brake pad, as well as tiny metal shavings from the rotor which can do damage to the surface of your wheels. You can prevent this and keep your rims looking great with frequent cleaning, using Simple Green All Wheel & Tire Cleaner.


  1. Spray Simple Green All Wheel & Tire Cleaner on cool, dry wheels.
  2. Let sit 1 to 2 minutes to penetrate the grease and brake dust. For heavy build up, scrub with wheel brush, soft brush or sponge.
  3. Rinse clean with garden hose or a bucket of clean water.
  4. Wipe dry.
