Easy Methods To Clean Your Bike With WD-40®!

Bicycles are a great way to get around and are excellent for the environment. This is why it’s crucial to keep them clean, lubricated, and in top shape generally. We have all gone on one or two crazy rides through some muddy trails, and while that won’t destroy your bike, long-term usage with little to no maintenance will. Here’s how to clean and maintain your bike, so it won’t let you down when you need it the most:

Pre-cleaning steps to clean your bike:

  • To clean your bike, start with the drivetrain first; use a rag and bio degreaser to wipe down your chain and remove dirt and grime clogging it. Then use an old toothbrush to clean between your gears
  • Use steel wool for grimy chains
  • If the chain is rusted, remove it from the bicycle and soak it in soapy water for twenty minutes

 Rust Removal, Lubrication, and Post Cleaning:

spray wd 40 on the chain

  • Spray WD-40 multi use product in places with heavy rust build-up, let the chain sit for some time, and then scrub it with coarse sandpaper or steel wool. You can then re-attach the chain and lubricate it immediately; apply a light coating before you clean your bike
  • Put your bike upside down and spray it down with a low-pressure hose
  • Fill a bucket with warm water, avoid using ordinary dish soap
  • Clean the frame with a soft sponge, wipe down the rims of your wheels using the toothbrush to get into small spots and lightly pat everything dry with a soft cloth and keep your bicycle in the sun to dry it off properly
