Default Ingrained dirt

hi guys and girls,

can anyone recommend a good good product that gets rid of ingrained dirt on a front bumper ?. Thought I'd try something before I went down the spraying route.

cheers

This, I use it for everything to do with cleaning, from couple of cap fulls for washing car, to full strenght for stains on carpet/upholstery.

Claybar. By far the easiest and best bet.

Bilt Hamber can be used with water as lube.

I tried a clay bar mate and it didn't work. I've tried a couple of things but it looks like it's been stuck in their for a while. It was like it when I bought the car. It's nothing serious and only noticeable when up close.

Is it quite a tough cleaner recovery ray?. Looks like it may take alot to remove it.

I use it once undiluted when i first bought some, it took a layer of paint off!,
so go easy and test an out of the way area first.

It cleans brake dust off easy so has many users, decent valeters swear by it,
saves buying multiple products.

maybe try using it with very fine wet & dry something like 1500 grade.

good luck! with what ever you decide matty

Is the bumper painted or not? As has been already said APC is probably your best bet, spray it in let it dwel a bit and adjitate it with a soft brush. If you have access to a steam cleaner try using that on it. They will shift just about anything.
