Motorcycle Wash DuduiT Wipes

Vulcanet WipesMrs G has a habit of cleaning the ENTIRE house using wet wipes. And I mean that literally. She has a collection of different wipes which she uses to clean floors, counter tops, basins and even the keyboard I’m typing on right now. Up until now I’ve always felt that some gentle ridicule was warranted but I may have to change my tune now that I’ve discovered Duduit wipes – essentially wet wipes for your car or bike (or anything else if Mrs G were to get her hands on them).

When it comes to cleaning, be it a car or a motorcycle, I believe we fall into three categories. Those who, after the initial excitement has worn off, don’t bother. Those who spend more time cleaning than actually riding, and those that sit somewhere in-between. I’m definitely in the in-between camp. I didn’t buy a bike to spend hours poking it with a specially marked toothbrush. I bought it to ride, and since it’s a GS Adventure and I ride in any weather, I don’t expect it to be spotless. So if I can get away with giving the bike a good wipedown once in a while to get rid of the inevitable crud and keep the chrome bits shiny and corrosion free, then I’m a happy man and DuduiT wipes are just the ticket.

So what exactly are DuduiT wipes?

The wipes themselves are made from a honeycomb weave material designed to capture dirt without scratching or streaking. Each wipe is impregnated with 15 non-abrasive eco-friendly cleaning agents which do everything from remove tar and insects to clean metal, glass, plastics and even leather – all without needing a drop of water. The patented formula also includes a water repellent and polish which means that a quick buff with the supplied microfibre cloth brings out a lustrous shine and leaves a dirt-resistant film.

Do DuduiT wipes work?

In a word, yes, as the photos below show. Each wipe is surprisingly wet which makes wiping very easy and you’ll be amazed at how easily stubborn dirt comes off, particularly the stuff that bakes itself to your shiny chrome pipes. The built in de-greasing agent clearly works.

DuduiT comes in a manly-sized tub which contains 80 wipes together with a microfibre cloth and retails in the UK for £30.99. Unless your bike is really dirty, expect to use about 5 wipes per clean which means a tub will give you 16 washes at £2.50 a pop. You can read more about DuduiT wipes on the  DuduiT  website where you’ll also find details of UK retailers.
