Wash Time

Now that the bulk of the dirt of grime has been broken down and pressure rinsed off, it’s time to wash the bike.

You can use any of our lubricating washes; Nanolicious Wash, Wax Wash or Auto Body Gel - all are pH neutral and very gentle with good gloss enhancing properties. NOTE - if you have a matte finish bike, use the Auto Body Gel. For this bike, we've chosen Nanolicious Wash because it's highly lubricating, super sudsy and we just love it. Wax Wash is also excellent for its anti rust properties - really cool for bikes with lots of exposed metal.

Choice of washing tool is up to you, though for this article we used The Love Glove. Shagtastic Wash Pad would be another really good choice for this bike and holds more suds, but for ease of use and getting into all the nooks and crannies on this particular bike, we felt The Love Glove was more suitable. Using the 2 bucket wash method, and with a good bucket of suds beside you, start at the top of the bike and work your way to the bottom. Be sure to rinse out The Love Glove in your Rinse bucket when it becomes dirty, to avoid contaminating your wash suds.

High pressure rinse the entire bike down again in preparation for the clay bar. Be sure to get the pressure washer into all those hard to reach places.
