Rib revive or similar

I can highly recommend rib revive on alloy wheels, small squirt and the ground in brake dust fell away. Amazed at the results.

So what is the magic chemical used....?

I don't think it is TFR, which is cheap as chips. They say it's not caustic, so what is it, does anyone know.

How interesting, what made you try that on your car?

Thanks for the tip, I have a car that has particularly difficult wheels to keep clean, I'll be trying this for sure.

The things you learn on Ribnet.

Ribtecer...it didn't stop there, tried it on oven trays with burnt on deposits, sandstone patio slabs, flower pots you name it, it all got a squirt... Grime just fell away.

With this lockdown and armed with revive, everything is sparkling - apart from the Rib....

Beerbelly not sure, I did compare the two side by side and the revive definitely won the cleaning test. However price per fluid ounce, revive is more expensive than Single Malt Highland Whiskey....hence wanting to know what it actually is.

RIBase
Id be very surprised if it wasnt Caustic based. Even the stuff marketed by Phillipo & Pennel has Sodium Hydroxide as an active component. I remember reading years back that they recommended Caustic Soda as a cleaning agent, and theyre the manufacturers.
