However you use it, cleaning your bicycle is important because:

Sponges, water and detergent are not always the best choice as they are ineffective against stubborn dirt, regardless of how much time and elbow grease you dedicate. The simplest and most effective solution is to clean the bicycle with a high pressure cleaner. The pressure of the jet dissolves dried-on dirt, allowing you to save water, time and avoiding the need to use large amounts of chemical detergents.

To wash your bike with a high pressure cleaner:

  • Start by cleaning the wheels, saddle and frame with water using a flat jet nozzle. This will remove surface dirt and moisten the dried-on mud. Pay particular attention to the hubs, gears, brake levers, gear shifters and handlebars, which are more delicate parts
  • Use detergent to thoroughly clean and sanitise your bike, by attaching the adjustable foam lance to the gun of the pressure cleaner, which will prevent unnecessary waste
  • Lastly, rinse and remove stubborn dirt using a brush. If necessary, use the needle jet of the high-pressure lance at close range to apply greater pressure on any dirt stuck in the wheel treads.

You can also remove dirt from the surface of the cleaning area just as quickly.
