This stuff is GARBAGE! (bike wash) Buyer Beware

Bought this today. Supposed to be able to spray it "generously" all over bike, even in those hard to reach places. Let it sit for 15 seconds and rinse off. No scrubbing, no film...just BAM! Clean bike. (for us lazy types)

pffffffffffffffffft!

Trash. Straight up garbage. Used the whole bottle. Did absolutley NOTHING.

Elbow grease is the only way I guess.

It was only like 9 bux tho.

Armor all wheel and tire cleaner works awesome! You should try that. I have tried others but none come even close!

Call the company and complain. You'll either get your money back or another bottle.

Glass cleaner will remove the wax (I think it's the ammonia).

The best I have EVER seen is S-100, it's made in Germany, it's expensive but it works great!
Just spray the bike, rinse and towel it dry. Won't hurt any part of the scoot, doesn't remove wax and best of all you can get it at nearly any bike shop, including Cycle Gear.

S-100 FTW! I have used it for years and it is the best I have found.

S100 Is NOT The Same As Diluted Simple Green! Not Even Close. Simple Green Is My Favorite Grease Cleaner, However It Does Strip Wax From Your Paint. The Bike Should Be Waxed After Glass Cleaner Or Simple Green Touch It.
