IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT WIPE NEW WHEELS:
One Wipe-It™ contains enough Wipe New® to treat two wheels. Before opening the Wipe-It packet, prep all wheels intended for coating so that you can complete your Wipe New Wheels application within a few minutes after opening the packet. Once the packet is opened, the Wipe-It begins to dry. Do NOT open the Wipe-It until you are ready to use it.
When applying Wipe New Wheels, wear the protective nitrile gloves and always use it in a well-ventilated area. Failure to wear protective gloves may result in injury.
If Wipe New Wheels begins to dry on the applicator cloth, streaking may occur. Once the applicator cloth dries out completely, it cannot be reused and must be discarded (see step 3 for disposal instructions).
Let Wipe New Wheels dry for 1 hour in a dry, well-ventilated area before touching the treated surface.
Contact with any type of moisture during or within 24 hours of application will result in streaking or spotting. Allow treated surface to cure for 24 hours before exposure to moisture (rain, dew, sprinklers, etc).
Do not apply Wipe New Wheels to hot surfaces or in direct sunlight as this may cause the surface to appear streaked. Ensure wheels are clean, dry, and cool to the touch before applying Wipe New Wheels
If Wipe New Wheels comes in contact with an unintended surface such as paint, wipe it off immediately with a dry cloth. After Wipe New Wheels has cured, removing it will require the use of a fine polishing compound or high grit automotive sandpaper.
Store unopened Wipe New Wheels packet in a cool dry place and discard within one year of purchase.

WIPE NEW WHEELS APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Wash your wheels thoroughly with a cleansing agent and scrub brush to remove all brake dust, oils, and dirt. Rinse and inspect to ensure all dirt and stains are completely removed. Repeat as necessary until the surface is completely clean. Ensure all wheels are clean, dry, and cool to the touch before applying Wipe New Wheels.
2) Put on the chemical resistant gloves, ensure that you are in a well-ventilated area and that the wheels are completely dry. Tear open the Wipe-It packet, pull out the applicator cloth and carefully wipe the wheel ONE TIME. Dab the included detail swab brush into the applicator cloth and use it to apply Wipe New Wheels into lug nut holes and other tight areas. Tip: start from the tire valve stem to mark your position and work your way around the wheel until you come back to the tire valve stem.
Each Wipe-It contains enough Wipe New Wheels to coat two wheels. Coat the wheels on one side of the car at the same time, then open the second Wipe-It and repeat the process on the wheels on the other side of the car.
3) When finished, set the applicator cloths in a location out of the reach of children and allow them to dry completely prior to discarding (a few hours). The wheels will dry to the touch in about 1 hour. Do not allow treated wheels to come in contact with direct moisture (rain, dew, puddles, etc) for 24 hours.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT WIPE NEW WHEELS:
Do I have to wear gloves and eye protection when using Wipe New®?
We recommend wearing the included gloves and using eye protection when applying Wipe New Wheels because once dry it can be difficult to remove from your skin, and may irritate skin upon contact. In case of contact with skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water. In case of contact with eyes, hold eye open and thoroughly flush with water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. (see cautions)
Can I put a second coat of Wipe New Wheels on my wheels?
We do not recommend applying a second coat to hard metallic surfaces such as wheels. Once Wipe New Wheels cures, a second coat will not adhere well to the first coat of Wipe New Wheels, and therefore may be subject to peeling or flaking. One coat is all that is needed to protect your wheels from environmental degradation.
Is it ok to apply Wipe New Wheels in direct sunlight and/or to hot surfaces? Will being out in the sun speed up the drying process (maybe I’ll need to use a second coat)?
For best results, apply Wipe New Wheels to a cool surface in a garage, carport or other shaded, well-ventilated area. While the sun does speed up the drying process, a hot surface or direct sun can speed drying too much and cause the surface to appear streaked. A second coat of Wipe New® will not resolve this issue.
How long does it take for Wipe New Wheels to dry? What happens if the treated surface gets wet before it dries completely (i.e. morning dew, rain)?
We recommend that you allow 1 hour of drying time before touching the surface and a full 24 hours after applying Wipe New Wheels before exposure to moisture of any kind. If the surface gets wet before Wipe New Wheels cures, you may see streaking or spotting in the finish. A second coat of Wipe New Wheels will not resolve this issue.
Will Wipe New Wheels damage my clothes?
Wipe New Wheels contains no dyes, however, it does harden as it dries and may damage your clothing.
How can I remove Wipe New Wheels from a painted surface?
Wipe New Wheels is more easily removed from unintended surfaces if it is wiped off immediately. Within the first hour (only) of application, acetone can be used to remove Wipe New Wheels from painted or metallic surfaces (see acetone product label for cautions). After it has dried,
Wipe New Wheels can still be removed from paint with a small amount of polishing compound, and a little time and effort. Apply the compound to a clean microfiber cloth and work it into the affected area in a circular motion until Wipe New Wheels is removed. Afterward, use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe away any remaining compound residue, then use your preferred polish or wax to restore the shine to the affected area.
Why does the surface look streaked while/immediately after applying Wipe New Wheels?
Streaking may occur if 1) prior to beginning the surface has not been thoroughly prepped (cleaned with soap and water, free of greases/oils and dust particles), 2) the cloth begins to dry during application, and/or 3) the treated surface is exposed to moisture within 24 hours of application.
