    Default cleaning painted calipers

    Is there anything I can use to spray onto my calipers that I have painted with silver hammerite when cleaning the car?? Is it best just to use a thin brush and soapy water?? Will products like Autobrite wheel cleaner damage the paint finish?

    I give them a liberal dose of alloy wheel cleaner when I'm doing the wheels, then pressure wash the lot off. If I've got the wheels off at the time, I give them a quick scrub with a brush too.

    Tip: Get some sealant on them when they're clean, makes them MUCH easier to clean Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection works for me, but if you can get a proper wheel sealant that would be better

    What mark said, Meg's APC will work fine to remove most dirt, polish your wheels with a decent sealant or wheel wax and the dirt will fall away no problem
