Proper Cleaner by Guy Martin

Since doing reviews for TotalMTB I have reviewed quite a few bike cleaners but non are quite like Proper Cleaner in the sense of how it comes!

When first bought you receive the Proper Cleaner bottle sprayer and one resealable pouch containing two capsules of general cleaner.

From what i’v seen across Instagram and the internet I would say this cleaner is quite unique and takes both being clean to the environment and being a fantastic bike cleaner seriously.

Once you have made your first purchase whenever you run out of cleaner you just need to buy some more capsules so no wasted plastic bottles and very little rubbish from the tiny package the capsules come in.

It’s already a great product and we haven’t even got to the cleaning yet, so once the solution is ready you spray your bike, leave for a few minutes and then wash off with clean water and a brush, what could be easier.

The final results are just fantastic and so much so that I wouldn’t be surprised if you started to use the cleaner on other things like car alloys, motorbikes and if you’re like Guy then your tractor!
