I guess it works.
December 13, 2020
This was my first time using an iron remover product, so I didn't know what to expect. I tried it on my white, 13 year old Volvo last week per the instructions after washing my car. I must take fantastic car of my paint and live in a very clean climate because I only saw maybe 5 or so very small purple streaks coming from each panel of my car. I don't know if it was user error (directions are pretty straightforward) or if my paint is just that clean. I've got 2 more (also older) cars in my care to try this awful smelling stuff on this winter so I'm curious how much (or little) iron is in the paint of those cars.
ConsSmells awful and can even smell the bottle of this product just sitting there in my garage.

This works amazingly well to remove embedded iron contaminates from my truck. Just spray down the truck, wait, and hose it off.
ProsRemoved bonded iron contaminants quickly Sprayer allows for a nice even application
ConsIt is not the best smelling stuff

Use this on your tough or high end jobs. It’s a little speedy but results are second to none. For less intense jobs, use something less expensive. Oh and buy the 4 liter, you’ll thank me later.

Every source I could find said this was the best, so it seems already industry confirmed. Definitely works. My entire driveway looked like an alien with purple blood got slaughtered. Best paint decontamination I've ever experienced. A must have for a true trip wash prior to paint correction or product applications.
ProsWorks better than anything out there Easy to apply
Best fallout remover
May 18, 2020
This stuff is simply the best. I purchased based on glowing recommendation from a local detailing group and it lived up to the hype. Smells horrendous when using it but CarPro is considerate and at least tries to mask it with a scent, unlike other brands. This will continue to be my go-to from here on. For the price-point, this one is the best.

Get Rid of Iron Stains Quickly
March 20, 2020
Iron X is a "must have" product in your detail tool box. Orange rust stains from brake dust particles are on the back of every car, but if you have ever washed a white SUV or Crossover, you have seen these particles embedded into the paint. After washing, spray the rear of the vehicle with Iron X and let it dwell for a few minutes. You will see it go to work as the iron particles turn purple and dissolve. Rewash the back of the vehicle and rinse very well to remove all product. Bingo! The stains are gone!
ProsEasy to use at the end of a wash
ConsNone-It's easy to use!

Carpro Iron remover is one of the top iron removers on the market. Works very well. Use it to decontaminate before clay or a wheel cleaner. Turns purple to let you know its working. Highly recommend.

Probably the best for fall out removal
November 26, 2019
I have used other brands before actually trying this stuff. The performance is way better than Chemical Guys Decon or Shine Detail Fall Out spray. It seems to be stronger vs other brands i have used, less product goes a long way. It's a bit expensive vs the competition but i will use this product on specific applications like car paints that are heavily contaminated.
Prosvery effective in removing iron gets rid of the red rings found in white paint due to iron sticking and contaminating the surface a little product goes a long way great for car paint with heavy contamination
Consjust like the others the smell is very bad use out doors pricy compared to other similar products but it's stronger.
November 16, 2019
There's a reason why this has been the industry standard for iron removal in paint. It just plane works.
September 6, 2019
Does an excellent job getting of break dust, rail dust and any other embedded ferrous material. A great pre-clean prior to washing and clay barring.
works great, but smells horrible!
August 24, 2019
Just like any other iron remover, it smells bad. Even if you get the scented versions. But it works and does the job.
July 8, 2019
Only tried it on my wife's 2009 Camry hood and it worked ok. Going to try it on my 2017 RX 350 that has ceramic coating. I will update soon.

This helps remove some of the contaminant but you still need to clay the vehicle. Great product this was the first time I have tried this product. I had no problem with it. Very easy to use!!! Will use this in the future on my customer cars aslo.
ProsSeeing how much contaminants is on your car by watching it turn purple. You have to let it on for a few minutes then rinse off.
Great rust remover
June 4, 2018
This product is easy to use and works very well. It has done a great job removing small rust particles all along the sides of my car from road debris and brake rotors. I would definitely recommend this product. Wherever the rust is, when you spray it on it begins to turn a dark purple color. After a few minutes, I spray it off with water and it is gone. Heavy rust build up takes a few times to remove the "layers" of rust.
ProsVery easy to use. Appears to be a much safer product than some of the other rust removing products out there.
See the hidden junk all over you car
January 3, 2018
I used this a little unconventionally. I started with a clean dry white car. Applied the Iron X, let it dwell for 3 minutes and started claying. Keep in mind the vehicle is immaculate, I would not try this on a neglected car. The clay and the IronX removed the iron contamination pretty fast. If I was to just spray on, Agitate and rinse you would have to apply this several times. This definitely did not remove everything in one application. Also just one little spec the size of the tip of a needle produced quite a lot of purple. So some of the videos I watched were misleading.
ConsCan√Ę‚‚¨‚"Ęt just spray on and wipe off once.
Best product ever
January 3, 2018
I have a white car and get those orange spots all over it from the highway. This stuff melts them off like butter, best stuff ever.

Great stuff. Erases rail dust with ease. Just work it into your wash routine and you'll never need to clay-bar rail dust again! Smells great...I dunno what all these other people are talking about! ;) A bit pricey, but honestly it's worth it for the ease of use and time saved. Out of curiosity, I tried diluting it 50/50 with water and it still tore through rail dust with ease. I will continue doing so, as it saves me money and still gets great results...two important things when you're detailing professionally!

First time using Iron.X
July 31, 2016
Great stuff, appeared to do a thorough job of attacking fallout. The product has a terrible odor, but that aside, its worth it. When using a sponge to help it work (after 3 to 5 minutes), it seemed to have a great deal of wash product that helped to clean the car finish. I'm transferring the remainder of the product to a separate spray bottle and slightly diluted it. Would recommend.
ProsWorks quickly, able to see it in action
ConsSeems to dry on the surface quickly even though car was in shade

IronX saved my reputation
October 20, 2014
Great product: does exactly what is advertised! I recently bought a new 2014 Honda Accord at dusk (BAD idea... buy it in daylight to inspect paint!!), and found rail dust a few days later. The service manager (who used to detail cars) looked at me like I was crazy when I told him about the rail dust issues. In the end, I had the dealership pay to send it to a great local detailer to have it decontaminated. HOWEVER, somewhere in the process, my instructions were not followed, and the detail shop skipped the decon. and went with a clay bar first, then a cleaner/sealant. My car was left with hundreds of extremely fine, yet very deep scratches, likely from the iron being dragged all over the paint surface during claying. Being a former detailer myself, it was a nightmare. I decided to take matters into my own hands, and embarked on a decontamination (using IronX for the first time) to coating detailing process. After washing, I applied IronX to the trunk area... and almost exactly 5 minutes later, was rewarded with the characteristic purple bleeding of the product reacting to iron. After a few more panels, I figured out that the LSP was not fully stripped. After successful stripping, I reapplied IronX, and found even more reactions taking place. Many pictures were taken, and I now had the evidence I needed to prove that the car had in fact, been heavily contaminated with ferrous slag before I bought the car. Left behind many pits as well, as evidence of the rail dust melting into the clear and color coats, and of the product doing its job well! So, it just shows to go that one should probably decontaminate before claying. On top of that, clay barring does NOT remove iron contamination "safely" and effectively 100% of the time. It removes some, but can drag these across the surface, resulting in scratches. However, deeply embedded ferrous particles like rail dust slag, will likely either be left behind, or partially removed. Can't wait to show that service manager the incrimination!
Pros+Incredible product! +It works +A fraction of the price of other decon systems (such as valugard) +Safer for paint than acidic/basic decon systems +Hasn't damaged any automotive surfaces in my experiences (used as directed) +"Cherry" scent is something that I can live with
Cons-Need to have 100% of any LSPs stripped before application to be completely effective, which can sometimes require polish/paint cleaners. DO NOT SIMPLY USE DAWN dish soap... it doesn't effectively strip tough sealants in my experience, and IMO doesn't provide a safe amount of lubricity. Wasted 5oz. learning this lesson! Still works on large ferrous particles (such as rail dust) with LSP in place, but you will likely have more contamination left behind. Would love to see CarPro invent a formula that strips LSPs as well, in one step. -Smell is still bad (although much improved over "squash flowers"). The Cherry scent smells a bit like burning hair, but I can live with it. Use outdoors and wear PPE (gloves and eye protection a minimum).
Works great,stinks like monkey butt.

After all the talk and accolades of Iron X I figured I would give it a shot. It does exactly as advertised. It will do a great job on wheel, works similar but faster than Sonax FE. On my wifes pearl white Nissan it pulled contaminates out of the paint that I thought were gone based on claying it previously. Left the paint smooth and clear. Looking forward to trying more CarPro products!

Truly an amazing product, glad AG finally offers it!
