I've been using Viro-sol (Also called MC2) for ages now to clean wheels and find it very, very good. It's a citrus based general purpose cleaner and degreaser, but it's great for brake dust removal. Being citrus based it is non-acidic too. The process I use is:

1. Fill a bucket with hot (not boiling) water.
2. Add a plastic cup full of Viro-sol.
3. Using a soft brush (I use the Meguiars versa-angle wheel face brush) dip it into the solution and clean your wheels - the solution feels slippery so will also help once dry to prevent brake dust from sticking. (only apply to cold wheels and brakes)
4. No need to rinse off, once clean simply dry your wheel off with a towel.

If you have stubborn marks, make the solution stronger by adding more Viro-sol until the marks come off. I would not recommend using it neat. Works great on brake calipers too, come up like new!

I would also recommend keeping a bucket specifically for this product.



You can also put some solution into a spray bottle and use it for quick cleans too. It feels slippery and smells of orange - great stuff! It's also very cheap too, £5 for a 5 litre container which will last you ages. I will add more pics of before and after to show what it can do.

I have tried many different wheel cleaners and so far nothing can match Viro-sol for brake dust removal and price/performance.
