If you are like us, you grew up washing your bike with an old toothbrush. That experience should have taught you that there is no substitute for using the right equipment and materials, whatever you are doing. So next time you want to wash your bike, turn to the 1. 7 Cleaning Solutions Wash Mitt. Most of us barely have time to ride our bikes, let alone maintain them. The Wash Mitt makes cleaning quick and easy. Made from a soft material, it will remove dirt and grime without scratching or causing irritating streaks on the frame. The thick, absorbent construction will soak up the soapy water to make sure your bike gets the most out of the cleaning session.
