Hi, I've just bought some G101, some IPA and already have bilberry my usual wheel cleaner as well as iron-X. My question is what is the recommended dilution rates for all these products so I can get the best value from them without compromising on performance. I realise it probably depends on how dirty the car is with some of the products, it's just for general everyday use I'm after.

From PBliss:
Autosmart G101 is a highly concentrated multi-purpose cleaner, and should thus always be diluted to an appropriate strength before use. For general cleaning duties it should be diluted 30:1 (water to product), while for more intensive degreasing duties it should be diluted 8:1 (water to product). Autosmart G101 may also be used for wheel cleaning and synthetic sealant removal duties; in such cases it should be diluted 5:1 (water to product) and spot tested before use. In all cases, an appropriately diluted solution should be sprayed directly onto the surface to be cleaned and then agitated thoroughly with suitable detailing brushes before being fully rinsed off. Ensure that you never allow Autosmart G101 to dry out fully before it is rinsed off, otherwise permanent staining may occur.
Personally I now use Sainsburys APC and use it neat around the wheel arches
IPA..Dilute with 20% water
Bilberry WC ..Neat
Iron X .. Neat
Hope this helps

IMO there are no proper dillutions they all depending product surface to be used and dirt.
I always make a test of weakest dillution first to see if results satisfy me and if not i increase the mix.
Indicative
APC on external surfaces 1:6 for fabrics seats etc 1:8+
Iron X used neat
Bilbery 1:6
Never used G101 TBH
