If you defiled the bike to the point of not being able to recognize it, you will need to resort to a maintenance shop to disassemble, wash and do the lubrication.
However, you can do what is popularly called “bath the cat”, and clean up a little dirt using materials that you probably have at home.
Each type of dirt requires a cleanup type different, however you can perform a simple cleaning to make your bike less dirty.
The items that will be used in this cleaning are:
- Soap powder;
Start by wetting the bike with a spray bottle in the most critical parts. This way you will avoid scratching the bike when you pass the cloth.

It is important to go by turning and folding the cloth during the process to prevent the dirt scratch the bike. In places difficult to access, you can get the aid of a brush to pass the soapy water.
In some places, such as the exchange, pulleys, sprocket and chain, you may be using products desengordurantes, such as cleaners of the oven. The appropriate would be to use a degreaser, but these products help to loosen a little dirt.
On bicycles with two or three crowns, you would have difficulty to clean the teeth and on the foreign exchange front, but with the crown single, there is more ease, because it’s only remove current.
Now you can remove the wheels and have access to regions that were previously unreachable. The process is the same, pass the damp cloth with soap and water.
Then pass a damp cloth with only water on the bike the entire bike to remove the soap that was left after cleaning.
Depending on the modality you practice, your bicycle can accumulate more dirt. The Mountain Bike for example, is more susceptible to soiling with mud and sand because of the large contact with nature.
This is evidence that perhaps this region may need a cleaning more coarse. Wet a brush with water and soap and rub on the wheels to loosen the dirt. Then wash it off with water.
To clean the cassette, leave the wheel and pass a cloth between the gears. Be careful not to cut yourself.
If it is very dirty, you can pass a spray-based silicone with the wheel on the foot. After cleaning, it is only to mount the bike.
Cleaning with diesel oil
It is a method used by many cyclists. You will need:
- A bucket of water;
- Soap powder;
- A hose;
- A sponge;
- Tooth brush;
- Diesel oil;
Wet the brush with oil diesel and pass on the relationship of the bike. Pass well to help loosen up the dirt of the grease. The places that can not pass the brush, use the brush of teeth as the pulleys back.
After you have brushed and brushed the bike with diesel oil, you will dip it to clean all the dirt that the diesel oil was able to withdraw.
After you have cleared the relation of the bicycle, the process is quite similar to the previous one. You will mix water and soap powder in a bucket and wash the bike all over using a sponge. Do not use the rough side, or you may scratch the frame.
It is good to remove the wheels to clean the spaces between them. Then, just rinse the bike and fit the wheels in place.
Then, you will wash with soap and water the relationship of the bike to remove the diesel oil that was left and wash it with water. Then just wait for it to dry
When the bike is dry, lubricate it. Pass the oil on the chain, and the other more refined the brakes and exchange rear.
Clean sand and dust
When the bike is dirty with mud, the rinse is very important for removal of the dirt, but when it is dirty with dust, only a damp cloth can help. The rinse can be harmful to pieces by this, the more you can avoid the better.
In addition, each water jet can remove a little bit of lubrication and it will take the dirt to other places. Blow off the bike before helps eliminate a large part of the dust, but a compressor can also make this work.
The transmission is the worst part to clean, but with a machine current will be better, because the work will be faster and more efficient.
Some of the brushes and the brushes can be used to complete the cleaning service.
Who riding on the beach with an idea of how the bike is at the end of the workout. The sand gets in all the places of the bike, especially the wheels. In addition, the salty air is at risk of rusting to the chrome parts, chains, and screws.
To clean the sand you will need to use a brush, to sweep it of places can not enter. Take all of the excesses, and in the end pass a damp cloth with a little M1.
This way, in addition to eliminating salty air your frame will be protected, because the M1 has action hydrophobic.
The rods of the suspension need special attention, some have a ring around the retainer. You will need to put it up and do the cleaning with the brush, after that, pass the cloth dampened with M1.
Then, the work is very similar to the bike dusty, is to pass a damp cloth, however this time you apply a little bit of the M1 every time I wash twist.
In the relationship is the same thing, you use the machine current, the brushes and degreaser. In the trial it is not possible to use the machine currents, because the current of her very short and close to the frame. In this case you can use the brushes and the brush.
In ratchets with sealed bearings there is less work to clean up, however, in the conventional sand enters with more ease.
Clean it the best you can using a brush wet with the M1, making moves that kicks the sand. Then, place two to three drops of chain oil on each side.
After cleaning the bike, if you prefer you can apply a Polish to enhance the paint. For this you will need to put a little Polish on the rag and go in the bike. Apply only a small layer of uniform shape.
Do this until you have applied the Polish for the entire bike, and then let it dry for about 5 to 10 minutes. Do not leave the bike in the sun during this step.
