Coming right on the heels of Muc-Off announcing an expansion of their tubeless products, we’ve got their Waterless Wash on test. When I first heard about the new pink spray, I was pretty skeptical about not only how well it would work, but also of its practicality. With an open mind and high praise for their standard bike spray, I thought – hey why not try it out? Details Cleans and polishes in one application No need for water Long lasting luster No residual dust or streaks Non-sticky Powder free Suitable to use on bicycles, motorcycles, cars & R.V’s 750ml $17.99 USD Yes – it really is that simple… Well, almost that simple. If you plan on using the Waterless wash, make sure that you have a good microfiber cloth to wipe the bike down with. An old T-shirt really won’t cut it. The Muc-Off one shown here is thick, and plush – the best I’ve used to date, but there are surely other good ones to be found. In Use It should be self evident that Muc-Off doesn’t recommend using this spray on a bike that’s totally caked in mud, but worth mentioning as a disclaimer. With that in mind, on a bike that’s seen a bit of dust buildup and a handful of light creek crossings, it’s a good solution if you want to save some time and water. The sprayer itself lets out a nice broad mist… As you can see in the middle picture, on the bike, the spray almost looks like water – it’s colorless and doesn’t foam up like a normal wash, but it still penetrates nicely and agitates dirt and light films of grease. One of the best parts is that it leaves no trace – miraculously, without water to rinse, there is no smearing, streaking or residue left. The main reason you’ll want to use a microfiber cloth is because it will pick up and trap the dirt and grime while moving it away from the frame, so as not to scratch your investment. Muc-Off recommends using a new section of cloth to clean each section of frame, which is a good technique. It’s best to start with the frame and fork, which are more prone to surface damage from scratching, then work your way toward grimier parts like the drivetrain and wheels. As you can see from the photos above, the Waterless Wash leaves a nice luster. Overall The Waterless Wash is perfect for Summer road trips or the weekend warrior racer to have stashed in their car/truck/van. It’s mainly ideal for dusty Summer conditions in general. The spray cleans a mildly dirty bike quite nicely, as Muc-Off claims while leaving your bike with a nice healthy glow and a protective layer. When your bike is completely caked you’ll definitely want to bust out the hose, but part of the beauty of this product is that it will make you less tempted to hose your bike off as regularly, thus preserving your bearings and in turn, the life of the bike. Saving water and time on drying off and cleaning up doesn’t hurt either. www.us.muc-off.com

I’d say most people can probably remember those experiences; where we’re living in a moment where time seems to slow down and we can describe every detail of that experience. And I think we hunt for those moments without often realizing it. Entire days of our lives, they can pass without meaning. Yet in those moments of absolute clarity, there’s an entire lifetime worth remembering.”
