Bike Cleaning : Fenwicks Concentrate
#1
Anyone here use, used or have Fenwicks Concentrate?

Just doing the whole "what cleaner" thing in my head.....

I "was" going to buy 10 litres of MucOff online, but the website doing the deal has now stopped doing the offer (b*stards!)

You maybe asking yourself : "Why is this notorios tightwad asking us about premium branded cleaners".....

Well....

So far, MucOff (for all its misgivings) is the only cleaner SO FAR to not stain my lovely black bike with water marks, streaking and residue.

Everyone knows I was on a crusade to find the real alternative, but Ive gone full circle - Virsol came close, until I found it ate my paintwork on my XTC.

Just wondering if I should try 1 Litre of Fenwicks???

I don't know why I asked as a I bought a litre of fs1 about 20mins after posting!

Damn my impatience! I'm just too eager (ask mrsboy!)

it's via wiggle, so ade should earn of of 20p! Every little helps ay.

It it doesn't streak or cloud my black paintwork then it's a keeper as certainly cheaper than mucoff

So basically you wasted 47 minutes of my time when you were PM'ing me about muc off and where to get it? I will charge you for that.

I use virosol for that, just brush it on, aggitate(sp?) it around, then rinse off, can see your face in your mech afterwards.

The original purchase of Virosol was that it was "supposed" to be Muc-Off when diluted 50:1 - but its just too strong!

Theres no way Im even going to test it on my TranceX.

One capfull in approx 3litres of water still managed to leave a permanant lighter streak on my XTC!

Its a biodegradable citrus degreaser, but mega strong.

Anyway, Fenwicks will be here at some point, the test its truly on! - Although still gutted I couldnt buy 10ltrs of Muc-Off as I know that works (much to my "Anti-brand" annoyance!)

No I didnt waste your time, as I had card in hand to go to that site, and theyve stopped the offer.

Thanks, but not your fault they withdrew the offer! and I therefore refuse to spend £20 just for 5 litres!

£8,99 for Fenwicks FS1 Concentrate makes 11 Litres - so worth looking at.

Perhaps I can report my findings to the ranks at IMB for a bit of content, the amount Ive tested, Ive sure got some experience in them now!
