I'm sure this is a good deal, but can I give you all a tip which will save you stacks of money on this type of product - It's only detergent and water. Just buy a gardeners spray bottle, and put washing up liquid and water in it. It will do the same job at a fraction of the cost.
I'm not disputing this as a deal, just hopefully helping someone save some money.

Unfortunately many washing up liquids contain salt - so I wouldn't recommend this......

This is quality stuff, this is more aggressive than most detergents, so you can't leave it on paint work too long, you can even water it down by 1/2 it is still good even @ 1/4 ! Thanks OP!

? 4.99 P&p

Yeah its a good price OP! I have been using Scottoiler stuff, FST 52 (cleaner) and FS 365 (anti corrosion) over the winter to great effect. Have some heat!

I think this about standard postage with these types of products... big liquid weight n all that. Would happily be wrong though :thumbsup:

my father in law uses this on his car wheels and it is great stuff.

I've been thinking of trying the FS365 - does it work on areas that get very hot eg exhaust manifold bolts? or does it just melt and run off? I'd really like to put this on the brake calipers and disk bolts as they really seem to suffer but presumably there is a risk of contaminating the disk or pads.......

Completely wrong i'm afraid :thumbsup:

Washing up liquid isn't safe to use on chains, brake discs or pads, and it'll dull the paint over time

I don't think it would have much effect on the exhaust down pipes themselves with the very high temps but you can spray it around the exhaust flanges and bolts and it will form a barrier against salt induced corrosion on these parts.

It's best to allow the engine to cool for a while before applying it or it tends to just vaporise instantly since it is a water based solution.

I had a look on their website/forum (]http//ww…1) its says "Spray all over avoiding brake callipers/discs and tyres" which i guess makes sense.

cheers

If you want the ultimate bike protector find yourself some ACF-50. Pricey but superb stuff.

This is an urban myth if ever I heard one. There is salt in washing up liquid, but the idea is that you wash it straight off, as you would Muc-Off. Any residues left on may cause damage, but that's because you haven't washed your bike properly. After years of using w-up lqd I have never had any problems and countless others agree with me.
