Maxima Bio Wash Cleaner Features
Maxima Bio Wash Cleaner Usage
Prior to using anything specific I pretty much used car wash concentrate or dishwashing liquid with some hot water and a scrub brush to clean my bike and lots and lots of water from the hose. It always seemed to do the trick okay and cleaned off most grease from the drivetrain. When I say "most" was where I eventually decided to add in Simple Green to try to get the remainder of the grease off the drivetrain. This was a dangerous step that meant even more water as you have to get all of the Simple Green off the parts or risk corrosion. That's where this odd bubblegum scented product came about in my life. Packaged in a 33.8 ounce bottle and running on the cheaper side of bike specific cleaning products I was hesitant. All too often I've seen products repackaged and touted as "bike specific" products that will change my life considerably. I have to say that Maxima definitely took a ground up approach to their products and the BioWash is no different. Likely created for the moto division(with direct correlation to bicycles) this cleaner seems harmless and smells good. There's no WAY it is going to get all the gunk off a chain or a cassette, right? WRONG!
Once you get the sweet smell from your senses and get to washing two major things I've noticed after using this product: One: you need little water to wash a bike once you start using BioWash and Two: I've never had such a clean drivetrain and bike as with the BioWash. I've used car detergent, dish soap, Simple Green bike wash and probably a few others but I've never had a cassette look as new and clean as the day I bought it. I've never used so little water and so little cleaner to clean a bike as I have with the BioWash. I notice that just a few sprays will cover the front triangle and then specifically sprayed areas will cover the rest of the bike. Once you get scrubbing with your scrubber it foams up well and extends along the tubes and parts. You will only really need water for rinsing and the product rinses off quite easily taking the grease and grime with it.
There's no cause for alarm either with the runoff into your driveway or patio as the product is claimed biodegradable and non-toxic. Lap it up kitties lap it up!(kidding!!!) This ain't your pappy's antifreeze. But with so little being used there's not really a lot of runoff. With a bottle I am averaging 16 washes with a few extra chain scrubs. One final thing of note that I don't see anymore is the white haze on my anodized frame. I've always noticed how before I had a white haze after washing. That haze no longer exists after using BioWash. Combine this with Maxima's SC1 and your bike will look as good as new(minus your rub spots..it can't save those!)
Honestly, I can't tout the product enough. So much so that I've convinced those around me to try it. Maxima has hit a grand slam with the BioWash product. I can only hope they continue producing it for as long as I can ride a bike. It's a great product that smells very nice, does an amazing job eradicating grease and is reasonably priced for the amount of uses you end up getting from the product. Add to the praise that the product is biodegradable, made in the USA, and doesn't leave the white haze and it's hard to fault this product in the least. Get some!
**I will point out that Maxima provided this product to me once to test but I was not solicited for a public review. This is my personal opinion on this product. and I still purchase it.**
