Muc Off foam Fresh Review

It leaves your gear smelling fresh,If you apply a lot of of foam,but it won’t do a better job than hand soap.

Dish soap or hand soap can do better:

Does not work as well, as normal hand soap will.

I used Lano hand soap to clean it,So far Lano soap & Zalo (Zalo is a quite common dish soap which a lot of people use to clean their bikes, not perfect for drivetrains,which Muc off degreasers do well and getting that brown color off you bike, which the last one Muc-Off Nano Tech Bike Cleaner does a great job with.) has been very good at cleaning all kinds of things out of my hands,apart chain lubes and stuff like this, But for cleaning stuff soaked in sweat it works great.So I had to try it.

With these 2 soaps you can see the helmet the effect of the soap quite fast.

 

with these 2 soaps I managed to clean helmet inserts so there was no dirty water coming out when rising off, which Muc off fresh foam did not, when rising off, there were dirty water after many tries, even after applying the foam and let it soak in and and rub with a sponge, there were still very dirty water when rising off many times.

Most dish soap will do the job,But make sure you don’t use to soaps/cleaners on helmets that can damage the materials.

Muc off fresh foam can clean lenses filled with dirt, but not much else.

Getting the sweat soaked helmet inserts, or adjustment straps clean & completely without a  stink is impossible.

I even Tried to clean my Forest smelling Five ten Freerider shoes, which did not work, the shoes still smelled like forest, even after applying a lot of foam many times with aggressive cleaning with a rag.

Another bad thing about the foam is that it runs out way too fast, but with liquid soap or solid soap, last way longer.

 

Verdict:

I can’t recommend this cleaner,as it does a poor job on cleaning shoes, shoe soles,goggles,helmet inserts. I won’t buy it again.

 

Cleaning tips:

To clean properly clean items like these: shoes, shoe soles,goggles,helmet inserts.

I recommend cleaning them by hand with water and hand soap or dish soap

Using a Washing machine can damage goggle foam,plastic parts on the helmet inserts,as it is a way too brutal method.

The best method to clean shoes,helmet inserts, similar things, is to use water, hand soap or dishwashing soap, and a sponge.

soak the item in water, apply soap, get soap every where with a sponge, let the soap do its job few minutes,then use the sponge clean every thing and the last the is rising the item with water. if you use hard hand soap, you can rub it against the surface you want to clean.

januar 2017 updated review: MOTOREX – BIKE CLEAN

Motorex is really as good as Motorex claims.

Removes dirt that no dish soap, I use it all over the my bikes

Cleans off Muc off dry and wet lubes.

I had no issues with cleaning dirty chain with Muc off wet lube on, wuith  Finish line Grunge Brush with Motorex bike clean  the chain was sparkly clean,but Muc off lubes are easy to clean off,with proper cleaners.

It feels dish washing soap or lube, so its important to rinse it off before a ride, if you use it on your brake pads or discs you will reduce the braking power if you don’t rinse it off.

I have used it Motorex bike clean to clean the brake discs and brake pads, but I rinsed it off well.

I can clean the whole bike with this product.(if there is not extremely sticky stuff on it)

no matter how dirt it was,mud,lube,and other things it removed it with no issue.

But If you want to remove good grease, you can’t with this product, you will have to use a a degreaser.

it works faster than finish line’s cleaner,I can use less of it.

it got a mild smell, does not stink extremely like some other stuff can do.

washing the drive train works well, compared to finish line cleaner,with finish line I had to use their degreaser which stink/smell horrible and still would not remove as well as Motorex’s bike cleaner.

Some stuff even the good cleaners and degreasers struggle with:

but it can’t clean the sticky shimano lube that has been my second fuel ex that has been indoors most of the time,and has been only ridden 3 times, and standing indoors for the rest of the time. but I tried re lubing it with Finish Line Dry lube, and that loosened up the chain and it now works like new.

Conclusion:

recommended Motorex’ cleaner,definitely worth a it.

 

Review Pro Care Bucket Kit 6.0 & brush set

Super bike wash:

Pros:

  • cleans fork that is brown from dirt with no issues,that dish soap can’t clean.20635176250_b5d8c7ce58_b
  • dries fast
  • can be used without water,the super wash does not have the dish washing  soap or lube feel effect like some other cleaners have (Motorex for example), it feels more like water.

Cons:

  • cleaning a well lubed chain with Finish line wet with lube full of dirt, will be a issue, and the multi degreaser can’t do the job either.the Multi degreaser got a strong stink.But after many months the stink is not strong any more.
  • works best on dirt only,I have tried Motorex & Muc off, the Motorex cleaner ,Both Muc off and Motorex works great and even faster than Finishline.

 

Dry Lube:

But here is where the Finish line Dry lube comes in, the second fuel ex has only been ridden 3 times, and had been standing indoors, without re-lubing. the Motorex could not do the job. but the Finish line dry lube loosened up the chain and now it works perfectly.

I have not tried to ride with this lube, but I assume it is perfect for dry conditions.

The only con of the lube is that it stinks,but you should not sniff lubes anyway.

 Wet lube:

the lube works very well, and does not attract much dirt, when you put too much on and don’t wipe off the excess it will not make ”spider-webs” on between the rollers and the chain. like Weldtite Extreme Wet lube does.

because the lube is not sticky the chain stays pretty clean no matter conditions, and is easier to clean that some other lubes like the extremely sticky lube on the Shimano chains.

Works well in the cold, I have been riding it in summer over 20 Celsius  down to -6 Celsius with out any issues

Multi Degreaser

the Multi degreaser got a strong stink.But after many months the stink is not strong any more, but you should not breath stuff like this anyway.

Pros:

  • not any pros that stand out

Cons:

  • cleaning a well lubed chain with full of dirt, will be a issue, and the multi degreaser can’t do the job either.
  • The Degreaser Works well, but It struggles with cleaning the lube/grease that come on KMC & Shimano.

Wax lube

I have never tried this lube, but after watching cannondany’s Shaibike’s video it’s clear that i will never buy it.

Brush set

The round paintbrush style brush & round small long brush works well for cleaning off tricky parts,

The brush with the hole, can be used for cleaning crank arms, but i can’t recommend using it for cleaning the brake disc rotor, because the brush can slip out of your hand and you can hit your hand on the sharp rotor,and hurt your hand.

Pros:

not any pros that stand out just does thee job done

Cons:

  • no rubberised grip
  • no rubberised brush body, which can result in scratches on frame or bike components

Grunge Brush

This is probably one of the best chain cleaning devices, unlike closed system witch are bit more time consuming, the Grunge Brush work as good as them but it is a simple solution, you can use it to clean the front chainring(s) and the cassette to, witch works great.
