Product seemed to work as described. Kind of hard to tell on black paint. It took an entire bottle to do my four door f150, so keep that in mind.
ProsDid what it was supposed to do
ConsIt smells terrible

Wasn't sure about this stuff, but man does it work well. I've only used it on wheels so far, and it removes thick, caked-on brake dust with ease. The kind of stuff I'd usually have to sit and scrub for 5-10 minutes was easily removed with a soaking of this product and one soapy scrub. Meguiar's Wheel Brightener is my go-to wheel cleaner, and while I'll never stop using it, Iron X is on another level for super stubborn brake dust and grime. It's pricey, but use it sparingly and wisely, and you will not be disappointed. As for the smell...I wasn't sure what to expect based on other reviews, but nobody's lying...it stinks! Embrace it.

Saved my wherls
First time using this product. on a set of painted aluminum wheels, there was old rust on surface from a bad caliper. I tried everything else and figured what the heck I will try this. Worked amazing. Two applications made the wheel come back like new.

Super product that works
First time user....worked perfectly....now the proud owner of a white car that is minus the nuisance rust spots....looks like a million bucks. I will continue to use on a needs basis. I live in Canada which has wicked winters with a lot of sanding and extreme temperatures....glad to have this product. Apply quickly...let set then rinse very thoroughly....fabulous results. All this without even getting to the claying yet.
ProsEasy application with a good spray bottle.

Wow! Works as advertised.
I bought a brand new 2016 white Honda accord and it came with many tiny little rust spots all over the car. Clay bar didn't work well at all and it took a lot of work to get big ones. After spraying this product, all the spots turned purple and ran down the side is the car. I rinsed and enjoyed my spot free paint job. I even bought a second bottle and did a second round. Not as many spots, but there were still some contamination. But be aware of the smell, it a strong chemical smell that can give you a headache. Do this in an open area. I also liked how this stuff didn't stain my plastic or rubber materials on the car. I highly recommend doing this in cool temperatures like when the sun is going down.
ProsWorks as advertised! Removes small iron rust deposits with little effort. I also like how it doesn't stain other parts of the car like the plastics and rubber parts.
ConsSmells really bad and can carry into the garage if you don't rinse well enough.

A must after Wi winters
First, it smells like death, not cherries. Second, it works extremely well and the results are immediately noticeable on a silver car. Some stubborn spots may require gentle sponge scrubbing.
ProsIt actually works

Yes it smells but it goes away.
It just smells like sulfur. If you have ever been to Florida this smell won't bother you. But to the results......make the surface so clean and smooth before claying.
ProsCleans paying very well
ConsPrice for the amount you get

This product is the absolute best in removing rail dust. I love it!! This is an absolute must for every auto detailer. It helps dissolve not only the rail dust on your vehicle but takes out bug and tar as well. It helps reduce the amount of time spent in claying.

This stuff works.. You can watch it change colors as it's working... Made claying a lot easier

Cleans paint of all contaminants .

Works great at a reasonable price.
ProsDoes a great job removing contaminants from your car.
ConsSmell! Whether you get the Lemon or Cherry scent, they're both horrible.

I received this in the mail yesterday and was admiring the nice bottle, when I saw that it was cherry scented. How wonderful! So naturally, what did I have to do now but open it up and give it a wiff? Biggest mistake of my life. Upon opening the bottle, my nose was met with the stench of a rotting chicken that had just farted into a pile of sulfur inside a gas station bathroom. After I stopped choking, I smelled it again to search for any trace of the cherry scent that was supposedly in this vile fluid. Nothing. Only more rotting chicken farts. After half an hour of this cherryless cycle of misery and sensory torture, the neighbors started to complain about the smell emanating from my house and I was forced to give up and accept that my car would not smell like delicious cherries while I was preparing it for cquartz. I do not know what kind of cherries the people at CarPro have smelled, but I'm pretty certain that they are not edible.
Stuff works great though. 10/10 would definitely buy again.
ConsDoes not smell like cherries

"BEST THING SINCE PEANUT BUTTER"

Great Product, but smelly!
This stuff works. It does have a strong odor, so if you are sensitive, be forewarned. Make sure you are either using it outdoors or with adequate ventilation indoors. Take a look at the pics. I used 0000 steel wool as well.

This product worked great on my 2011 rims. It actually cleaned them so well that I could see the metallic in the paint. I have never seen my rims so clean.

Simply awesome product!
Great product. It has a strong odor but it gets the job done.

Well worth the money
This was my first time to use Iron-X and was surprised at how much iron dust it dissolved off of the paint. Be sure to rinse, rinse, rinse so the next day or two you don't have rust streaks coming out from under emblems and such.
ProsDoes what it suppose to do as advertised.
ConsCan't think of any

nose plug not included
Smells like a woman getting a perm in a portajohn. Works like it says. Great for paint prep and decon. I used it after clay but have heard people using before to speed up claying process. Tad pricey but worth it.
ProsExcellent iron removal and decon.

I bought a new car about a couple months ago and noticed a sheen on one side of the car steadily getting worse and worse. I kept trying to figure out what had gotten on the paint. I then realized it was the water from my neighbors sprinklers that are on well water. I tried everything then I found Iron x. Man I am so thankful for this stuff. I didn't know what I was going to do. Works great and is a breeze to use. I think I am going to have to do the whole car just for the hell of it because the one side I used it on looks amazing.

Best thing since sliced bread
This product is a true gift from heaven for white cars. Say good bye to rail dust / brake dust. Just spray and enjoy the show. No scrubbing required. Clean your nasty wheels with ease too.

After much review of watching videos, searchung forums and google researching, i found this product thanks to a recommendation from a friend to be exactly as described. This product doesnt joke around, its as legitimate as they say.
ProsEasy cleanup, only turns purple when product is targeting imperfections, isnt residual or oily in texture
ConsScent isnt exactly as described

really cuts through the brake dust
I have a lexus ISF (stock brembo pads dust badly) this makes cleaning a breeze, works great and doesn't hare the OEM wheels( mine are black pearl) ...I will buy more when I run out
Prosworks like no other, almost no touch cleaning , don't smell like acid

Just enough for full size truck. 95 percent rust spots gone in five minutes. Didnt affect any plastic. Clay bar and waxed after. Do this early on in your rides life saves it from being a rust bucket 10 years later. Easiest way to remove rust shavings embedded in paint. Will purchase again!!!

does exactly what it says on the bottle. make sure to where gloves. I didn't want to find out my hands stink for days on end. very stong odor but worth it if you have lots of iron on a white car like I did. made claying a dream. a nice dream.. I will where a vapor mask next time and not use a whole bottle on my SUV like I did this time. Iron X took off nearly all iron and other contaminants. only thing I was disappointed with was when I was finished detailing I washed my drive way and when concrete is wet theres big spots that are visible but when it dries nothing is visible. Just an annoyance but not a deal breaker. if your sensitive to bad odors try wearing a mask with vapor filters. next time using this product on the street. otherwise I would rate it higher
Prossaves tons of time which would have been wasted on claying the contaminants , still have to clay but saves you hand and your paint as well

Easily removes "rail dust" yellow spots off white vehicles very well.
ProsNo heavy buffing or scratching of the paint.
ConsRemoves all wax.

I did not get what I expected; but that is not a bad thing
I have 1200 miles on my new car and I wanted to get it prepped and protected before it turned to crap. I was surprised how much stuff there was on my new car. If bleeding purple means the ferrous junk is being destroyed, then it took a lot off the car. What surprised me was when I did the wheels, there was quite a lot less gunk coming off than the paint. YIKES! I guess it was a good idea to use Iron X. The product I bought was 'cherry smell' and let me tell you, I don't care what they do to it the smell would gag a maggot. Just make sure you are windward side...
ProsEasy to use
Worked as described
