Brembo brake dust tip

I'm getting ready to take off these wheels and have been going nuts with all the dust every few days. Today I came up with a solution using a Swiffer. The results were quick and it fits into spokes, as well as those slots. You can also clean the calipers off with it.
Here's a quick video

Re: Brembo brake dust tip

Replace the pads - that's the best option. But even with better pads, after 2-3 weeks the wheels lose their shine. That swiffer method really is cool. I have to wonder how well it works compared to a good washing though - might need to compare for yourself too. I'd also be a little concerned about putting swirls in the finish of the wheels since there is no lubrication and you're rubbing dust all over the wheel while trying to remove it... if that makes any sense, lol.

Re: Brembo brake dust tip

Lol, I'm an OCD type keeping clean wheels and wash them twice a week. This swiffer method is just meant for that quick touch up bt washes. I was using a rag before and getting it into the slots was difficult without a toothbrush. The swiffer gets in there so when I do wash there's not much build up.
I just installed Hawk ceramics on Wednesday and waxed up my calipers so the dust would wash off quicker.
