Default What do you use to keep your inner fenders clean?

Owning a black vehicle can suck.

What do you use to keep your inner fenderwells clean?

When my truck is clean it looks like shit because the inner fenderwells are always brown.

I have tried armorall and other tire shine products, That seemed to make it worse.

I have painted the inner fender wells with black paint, but that flaked off.

I have scrubbed the shit out of them, etc.

I drive down a lot of dirt roads and the dirt seems to literally stain the black plastic brown.

Any suggestions out there?

Honestly I wish I could avoid dirt roads, but where I live and my disdain for traffic and other drivers it's difficult.

@Shotgun, I thought about WD40, but it seems to attract the dust, I figured it may just leave me with a nice dusty caked on mess.

Drive a focus


Really all I could ever do was clean them regularly and try to avoid dirt as much as I could.

My wife's focus is black also, but it sits low enough you can't see up in the inner fenderwells at all.

It's a race car focus, I put new tires on it and it is ridiculously quiet compared to the original tires, and it corners way better (just kidding)

Ive used "PAM" the can the wife uses on the pots and pans, works good enough for me, not a cure all but helps .imo.
More for the trail/mud than dust or road tare, etc.
