Muc-off for me to if it is a full on wash.. If the bike is in a light dirty state then I will use mr sheen and lots of rags. I find Mr sheen cuts through all sorts of muck. 5 mins left on the flies and they come off with ease. Lots of elbow grease using this method but I find it quiet therapeutic when I am in the mood for cleaning the bike.

Muc Off, SDoc100 and Rhino Goo. I have personally found these 3 the best to clean the bike. However the SDoc100 is the best out of the three.

It's what I've used for years on off road bikes and I like it that I can choose the strength .... too strong and it does effect anodised parts though .. hey-ho , silver bling is better than no bling I suppose ? :D
