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.
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.
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.
