Triple Wax Water­less Wash and Shine £4.25

Tester Matt Wildee Time tested 20 washes

What’s good? It’s a water­less prod­uct that washes, and erm, shines. The idea is that you spray it onto your bike, wipe off the dirt with a mi­crofi­bre cloth and pol­ish. It works too, bring­ing up travel-stained bikes and cut­ting through flies and chain fling. I’ve found it to be most ef­fec­tive if you leave it to soak for a minute or two be­fore buff­ing off. When I first used it I was wor­ried about scratches, but so far I have none – it lifts the dirt away from the paint as you pol­ish. I wouldn’t use it on re­ally filthy bikes, but it works re­ally well for the kind of dirt you get from sum­mer use. The wax leaves a lovely beaded fin­ish if the bike gets wet, too. A bot­tle lasts 20-odd cleans.

What’s not? Al­though it’s bet­ter than many waxy bike washes, it can leave some white residue on rough black plas­tic parts.
