Thanks Tim!

And Thujone, I'm not going to link you because I'm not sure how forum rules go here but it's called Aquartz Iron Cut. I'm not 100% sure of what it does but I think it basically lifts Iron deposits off the car and it's like a quick touchless decontamination. It's no replacement for a clay treatment but Iron Cut sure does cut down on the claying time. On white cars you can see the iron deposits come off the most, looks like a purple car in some lighting

TripleJs, I'm using Leather Master Super Remover, Leather Master Vital Conditioner and Leather Master Protection Cream in that order.
