White Vinegar and water works wonders on hard water stains.

I may as well try the vinegar thing first and see if that works, and if not, i'll definitely be picking some of this up

For sure, and of course the IronX products. I need to try the snow soap one of these days. i wonder if it removes some brake dust staining like regular ironx. Would be nice to clay with it as a lube and kill 2 birds.

Ill clay with ironx on a vehicle and then use optimum no rinse as a clay lube and it works really well. I wouldnt recommend it on darker vehicles since its much easier to marr.
Also the ironx soap doesn't work nearly as well as ironx.

Used iron-x on my wheels today just to see how it worked. First and foremost, it smells worse than Bigfoot's dick covered in rotten eggs. I got the "cherry" scent and it's laughable that they can even say that it is scented at all. I didn't understand how bad it was so I took the cap off and took a big smell right out of the bottle. Instantly I felt like simultaneously passing out and throwing up. It's the worst smelling product I have ever used in my life. I had to use a sulfurated lime dip on some pet rats that had mange, and this stuff smells worse than that.

All that being said though, it does work extremely well. I sprayed on, let it sit 5 minutes then rinsed and all the brake dust was gone. Didn't even have to agitate it. Looking forward to using it on the rail dust spots I've accumulated over the winter once I have time to do a full detail.

See I disagree, I think the lemon is much better than the original. Not that it really matters tho, but that stuff really does kick ass.

I actually tried their Hydro2 this weekend and holy shit balls. I don't often buy into products that are too good to be true, but I watched a couple videos of this stuff and decided to give it a try. Have been looking for a good product to use with my Express detail package. So its just a spray on sealant that you mist on while the car is still wet after washing and it uses the water to activate it and bond to the paint. I have not clayed or waxed my truck since late summer. I did not have time to clay it before using this product like recommended, but I wanted to see what it was all about. As I misted it on the wet hood the water literally just lifted up into beads. Then you rinse it off and dry as usual. It was smooth and easier to dry and left a glass like shine. I was impressed. After the rain last night the areas that I applied to are beading up very nice compared to the rest of the truck. They claim 3-6 months protection, which I think might be possible with a garage kept vehicle and with proper prep before application. I'm interested to see how long it lasts on mine. I think it will be a great product for a well maintained finish when you don't have time to do a wax after a wash.
