Red dirt stains are very stubborn to remove from clothes. But removing red dirt from the body of your car can be as difficult as well.
The reason it’s so stubborn is also the reason it’s so red- it’s rich with iron. And Australian soil is known for all the iron in it, thanks to being really old.
So, it’s likely that you’ll get some red dirt on the wheels or on the body if you go out for a stroll in the country. But, the question is, how do you remove it?
Well, look no further because we have exactly what you need, right over here. This guide tells you how to remove red dirt off the body of your truck and off the wheels.
So, without waiting any further, let’s jump right into it. But first, let’s check out the stuff you’ll need to have before you start the job.
Here are the things that you’ll need to clean the red dirt off thoroughly.
Now, let’s jump in the process and see how you can remove red dirt off surfaces with ease.
At first, we’ll start by learning how to remove dirt from the body of your truck. To make things easy for you, we have divided the whole thing into five steps.
Follow them carefully and you’ll be done in no time. So, here goes:
To start it off, take the water hose and wash the whole body. This will help loosen up the dirt before you apply the truck wash.
Try removing as much dirt as you can with the water. After that you can move on to the next step.
Now that the body is wet, move on to applying the truck wash on the body of the truck. Try to apply it uniformly on the whole body.
That way, the body will get a complete wash. Talk about two birds with one stone, right?
Also, while you apply the truck wash, keep a safe distance. You don’t want to inhale the chemical fumes. If you’re looking for a washing solution for both your truck and your car, click here.
Once the truck is applied, let it set on the body for a while. The truck wash will set onto the dirt and make it easier for you to remove the red dirt.
The longer you let the liquid set in, the better. So, you might want to give it some time.
After you’ve let the truck wash set in, you can start using the soft-bristled brush to scrub off the red dirt. Use the brush to slowly brush away at the dirt.
Now, make sure you aren’t too reckless with the brush. You don’t want to scratch the body of your truck.
Brush slowly and carefully until you’ve taken care of the whole thing. Now, move on to the last step.
Once you have properly scrubbed the body and taken care of the red dirt, rinse it properly with some water. It’ll take care of the remaining dirt.
After you have properly rinsed the body, wipe it dry with the microfiber cloth and you’re done.
That’s how you remove red dirt off the body. Now, let’s see how you can do so with the truck wheels.
Now, it’s time to see how you can remove red dirt off your truck wheels. Now this one’s a bit tricky because the dirt tends to get into the grooves.
But, if you follow these steps carefully, that won’t be a problem anymore. Moreover, it’s also similar to how you remove red dirt off the body.
For this process, start like you did with a truck body. Wet the wheels properly and try to get rid of as much red dirt as possible with the water.
Usually, you’ll be cleaning a wheel with a wheel cleaner solution. But in this case we recommend that you use a spray-on cleaner.
Spray-on cleaners are meant for ingrained dirt like red dirt. So, apply the spray-on over the whole body and let it set for a while.
After the cleaner has set on, you can start brushing off the dirt with the brush. Now, you can also use the spray while you brush to loosen up the dirt further.
After you have brushed and taken care of the red dirt on the wheels, rinse the wheels with water and wipe it dry with water.
Make sure you reach all the grooves with the water and clean the dirt properly. And with that, you have properly removed all the red dirt off the wheels.

Make sure you always have a cleaner at the back of your trunk when you go out on the open road. Taking care of the dirt when it’s loose will save a lot of your time.
