How to clean stock fender flares...

Hey Everyone,

I find that even after I take my time hand washing and scrubbing the jeep fender flares they still have spots and look dirty. What do you guys use to get these things clean?

I currently use back to black and 303 to blacken/protect them so I am not looking for recommendations for that. Only cleaning products please

Greased Lightning. It's a spray cleaner I get at Home Depot. Takes out the mud stains pretty well.

This stuff works pretty well. I pressure wash the dirt off and I spray this stuff on a sponge and it lasts for about a month. Bugs wipe right off too which is good for love bug season

I had trouble keeping mine really clean at first but Dawn did help. After putting some dressing type stuff like Poboy and Blackfire, they got less dirty to begin with...should have done that before my first wet trip. With the new JKU, I have painted flares so no issues.

I use Comet and a toothbrush for the small stuff and a regular wheel brush for the big.

LMAO. Reminded me of the decal I had on my CJ "Hummer Recovery Team". A prick in a Hummer was tailgating me, and when he had a chance he passed me while filling me off. I just waved and laughed at him.

For the crappy plastic that's on our fenders and bumpers I wash everything with regular soap and then spray a good amount of 303 on a micro towel and they look like new without the jerry curl look. I do the same for tires.

Soap them up, then power wash them... followed by a bumper/trim treatment.

Tire shine does the trick, do your normal wash, dry off good, then as Cronoswing said, apply to wax applicator or sponge and wipe on. A buddy does this for all his black moulding/rubber on his 05 Chevy truck, works like a charm.

I have found Meguire's Ultra Shine to be great on the interior, tires, wheels, bumpers, rails, and fenders. Mother's also makes a Back to Black cleaner that works pretty well.

I'm big into car detailing and have been using adams products and chemical guys for year I think there great, in sure there are a lot cheeper products out there but I like the adams car shampoo on it and then adams vrt works good on them and keeps them dark without a crazy shine or being greasy but like someone said your gonna get 100 dif answers and I'm sure they all work lol

I have honestly had a lot of success using simple green to clean them (after a wash) and 303 to blacken/protect them. Thanks for the recommendation I appreciate it!
