New blue wheel cleaner not as good as the old pink stuff?

Question

So like most everyone else on here, ive had to switch to the new blue wheel cleaner. I had a lot of the pink gallons so i used those up and switched to blue towards the end of last year, since doing so my wheels have now been developing deposits of brake dust inside the barrels from rotor evacuation and in the corners of the spokes from rotation. Granted i run aggressive pads on track that dust heavily, ive never had this issue with the pink stuff and now i cant get it off of the wheels. Ive let it soak in the corners and gone at it with brushes, tooth brushes etc. 

 

The before picture is average dust coverage, the after picture is after a full cleaning with scrubbing in the corners and barrels.

 

Any ideas?

I started detailing after the blue wheel cleaner was released. I don't know which one works better but I heard that using the turbo stick helps in those spots.

I've had good results but just like Nathan that's the only wheel cleaner I used...I did notice a little dust stuck in the corners but I just attributed that to my poor wheel cleaning skills :blink:

I like it.  I get good results with the Wheel Woolie and the blue, and the red wheel brush.  I really didn't notice any difference between the red and blue.

Those are some nasty rims, sometimes more than 1 application is needed to get that baked in buildup removed. Instead of wasting more product just apply where needed, I've even used a wet mf towel or q tip soaked in WC and just let it dwell. IMHO the red WC seemed to work faster and the new blue WC seems to have more dwell time before drying, I've not really seen a difference in cleaving ability

I've used other brands and i haven't been happy. Looking forward to trying this out soon. Next purchase for sure.

I like the blue one better.The pink one smelled horrible and it always stained my tires. The pink one was a deep wheel cleaner so maybe it was a little stronger. I use the wheel woolie and the turbo stick and they work well.  Might want to try the wheel brush.

if this is any indication of the strength, you had to dilute the pink wheel cleaner 1:1 to use it as a decontaminator.  you can use the blue at full strength

 

i love adam's stuff, but sometimes (like the shampoo) a product "evolution" is not always better

I like the new blue too, but a Detailer who buys through me swears the old pink death worked better.
