Tested: Ben Reviews the Muc-Off Waterless Wash.

Designed for keeping your bike clean enough in between big washes, Ben has been testing the the Muc-Off Waterless Wash to see if it stacks up.

While it will indeed be made mostly of water, the Muc-Off Waterless Wash is designed to keep your bike running clean if you don’t have access to a hose or it’s been pretty dry out.

Ben put it to the test to see how it performed.

Muc-Off Waterless Wash

Recently the Muc-Off crew sent us something a bit different. The Muc-Off Waterless Wash is £11.99 for a 750ml bottle. Yes, it is still a bottle of bright pink liquid, and yes, it is still for cleaning my bike, however this wash does not need water.

Just spray it on, leave it to do its thing and then wipe it off with a soft cloth, also available from Muc-Off.

Curious, I took a slightly grubby bike, sprayed it on, followed the instructions and hey presto, it was actually pretty clean. It actually was nice and shiny too, kind of like if you ever sprayed silicone on your bike to polish her up.

On lightly soiled bikes it certainly works well. It is quick, easy and effective. Happy Days. If your bike is properly muddy then you will still need to get the hose out for a proper wash.

If you are a serial bike polisher whose bikes are always shiny then this might be the product for you to keep things spick and span without needing the extra mess from water.

What do we think?

Personally, if my bike is only a little bit dusty or dirty then I am unlikely to clean it unless I am racing so I probably wouldn’t use this much. It is still decent though and from time to time I am sure it will come out the shed.

We love:

  • Good for cleaning light dirt
  • Handy if you don’t have a hose

Could do better:

  • Not necessarily better than a regular bike cleaner
