Mine was in the sun, hot. But not recently driven. Let it sit for 5 min, sprayed more on, waited another 5, washed off with car soap, water, brush. Then I flipped them to the front side and repeated

Everyone does...lol... I wish someone warned me about it. We grabbed a bottle of Meguires polish and hit them with that...seems to have worked or at least helped.

Oh..and if anyone wants to try some, there'* a full bottle of this crap in the bottom of my garbage can

Package says "all wheel" safe for everything...then the caution statements in small writing...who would have guessed.
