How to use
Just the tonic is used after the Purple Rain decontamination process and removes tar deposits from exterior paintwork and alloy wheels. It rapidly breaks down by dissolving the tar into black streaks which then are easy to remove by simply wiping away with a standard work towel. Just The Tonic also removes any brown tarnishing that is present on the surface, dissolving it upon contact.
Apply Just The Tonic to the surface liberally to the affected areas, leave the product to work for up to 2-3 minutes, Just The Tonic will start to work instantly. Do not let the product to dry on the surface, if you do leave the product on longer than the recommend time – re apply more Just The Tonic to the surface and remove with a work microfibre towel.
If the tar deposits are still present, you may need to re-apply for a second coat. In some cases, tar is more difficult to remove. A blast with Just The Tonic to leave a clean tar free area!
Just The Tonic will degrade if not remove your waxes or sealants on the surface and you may need to re-apply.
