This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in January of 2018. It may seem obvious, but in order to keep your bike running properly, you have to clean it on a regular basis. Removing lubricant residue can be a challenge, but when you have a quality degreaser on hand, the process is much less of a chore. The products on this list feature a range of formulations, all of which are designed to remove slippery grime, so your ride can perform at its best. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 18, 2019:

Bike degreasers such as these do much more than keep your bike looking great. They help you clear out the grime and dirt that can clog up your chain and drivetrain and render your ride useless. Unfortunately, the heavy-duty lubricants necessary for a smooth trip can't be removed with regular soap and water. Here, you'll find formulas from trusted brands like Finish Line and WD-40, as well as smaller companies — see Pedro's Oranj Peelz — that have made it their mission to create eco-friendly bicycle maintenance products.

Runaway Bike and Bike Medicine Golden have been removed due to user complaints about their effectiveness against tough grease deposits. In their place, we’ve added Park Tool Bio Chainbrite, which is an eco-friendly option, as well as Chemical Guys Signature Series, praised by bicycle enthusiasts for its quick-acting formula.
