Bel-Ray’s biodegradable micro-emulsion cleaner is hard on dirt and grime while safe for use on painted, fiberglass, rubber, and plastic surfaces. It can even clean and brighten chrome, aluminum, and other alloy wheels. Once applied, Bel-Ray cleaner softens and lifts most accumulated dirt and grime without rubbing or brushing so you can rinse away the dust, dirt, crap, and gunk with just water.
