Clear and biodegradable, foaming bike wash works as claimed
Skip to view product specifications

Spray on bike wash isn’t a new concept, with the likes of Muc-Off having a strong following in the market already. WD-40 Bike is the latest entrant, with a biodegradable offering that claims to ‘foam’ away the dirt and grime.

The bike needs to be hosed down before and after application of the foaming wash. Foaming wash – like other bike cleaners – help to speed up the cleaning process, but are not a one-stop shop.  

The dirt must be agitated with a brush or sponge, but we were then left with a perfectly clean surface. The cleaner no doubt helps to lift and break down the dirt, proven when we tried it on stubborn dried-out clay mud with success.

Like other bike washes, it’s safe to use all over the bike, but not strong enough for a greasy drivetrain. The degreaser is the right-tool for that job and when used together the results will be a fresh bike.

The plastic trigger is basic and one of our samples was faulty – leaking and lacking pressure. our other samples worked fine though: the plastic trigger is basic and one of our samples was faulty – leaking and lacking pressure. our other samples worked fine though

The 1L bottle’s trigger head is easy to use and allows the solution to be sprayed all over the bike. The trigger is a basic plastic construction and we did experience an annoying leaking trigger on one sample bottle, but our others were without issue.

WD-40 have a wealth of experience in other markets to pull from and its first bike wash attempt is a good one. It does the job, but it’s not noticeably better or worse than other market favourites.
