Gave the car a quick wash this afternoon and once I finished the wheels I noticed they were left with a horrible milky hazey finish all over. It looks like they've had a bad reaction to the wheel cleaner I used ( which is a non acidic wheel cleaner I've used many times before )

I know the Fuchs are anodised and very sensitive and I had a quick google and others who've had similar issues have said to use some Vaseline. I gave that a go and it's helped a bit but I thought I'd ask if anyone has any other ideas or has seen this before?

I used to use Autosol on polished alloy wheels in the past and I would probably seal once done with something like Gtechniq C5.

You need to leave a coat of Vaseline on the surface for a day or longer to get a result.
