FS-1 Cleans CARBON and MATT frames, leaving them with a perfect finish, it always has done and always will do. Why pay extra? For expensive, overpriced cleaners
Fenwicks FS-1 - No acids or solvents, ideal for all bikes
In 1996 we created our first bike cleaner concentrate called 'Hog Wash' If any of you have a bottle drop us a line. This was way ahead of the curve as it didn't take off due to the already mixed, ready to use bike cleaners out there. Relaunched in 2003 as FS-1 because of our belief in giving you value for money, the demand for FS-1 Bike Cleaner Concentrate increases by the day as there are now lesser concentrates on the market. This is because 1 litre of FS-1 can make up to 11 litres of ready to use bike cleaner, making it £0.91 per litre, a no-brainer really. We even have a special fill line on our FS-10 bottles at the bottom to help you out creating the perfect bike wash every time.
Like no other company we produce such highly concentrated cleaners using a complex blend of high quality liquid raw materials (others use cheaper powdered raw materials, which can leave a powdery residue when dry) FS-1 Bike Cleaner Concentrate cleans deeply and easily to leave exceptionally clean contaminant-free surfaces. Safe for you, your bike and the environment. Free from caustics, metasilicates, abrasives and silicone. Safe for use on all bike parts including carbon fibre, disc brakes, delicate anodized parts, etc. Plus it's strong enough to be a great degreaser.

Mr MarriottVery effective cleaner for removing dirt from the bike, used straight from the bottle it worked well as a degreaser for my chain, I used it in a chain bath. Only slight negative is that the picture shows an outdated version, the item I received was the same shape but the colour of the liquid was green. Overall very effective, would buy again!
Flawless154 Andrew LawlessDoes the job, one of the better products I have used at this price point. Won`t hesitate to get it again.. Great service and delivery from Merlin
Mr BrookesEasy to use bike cleaner, use as a concentrate or diluted. Great value.
ElderI use this a lot and it goes a very long way
CyclingDaveWorks a treat, smells fine. I use it by applying on with a paint brush, and the chain bath. Gets my chain nice and sparkly.
Andy CurrieGreat chain cleaner. I don't use anything else.
Mr SearleGreat cleaner.
CookThe best degreaser I've found!
Mr WarnerFantastic stuff. Removed my cassette, soaked it in some of this before brushing off and it came out gleaming. Also used it neat in a chain bath and again worked brilliantly.
HansThis is fanatastic stuff! I recall mention of it somewhere being an extremely effective degreaser and suitable for cleaning chains. My chain tends to get very dirty very quickly, as I ride along a waterfront, so the chains gets fairly muddy and covered in everything from grass to sand. Cleaning the chain was always a huge chore, and utterly dissatisfying as the chain never became really clean. I used some off-the-shelf degreasers from Homebase which were only good at removing the worst of the grime, but never reaching deep enough into the links to properly clean them - I could always hear some crunching noise of caught sand or something else. With Fenwicks, the experience was really different. I soaked the chain in the liquid pure for about 10 minutes, and then agitated it in a closed container for almost 10 minutes. After a good rinse, my chain was in an almost-new state, and the links perfectly clean. I quickly covered them in WD-40 to prevent water from sitting in, and then went about drying and replace the WD-40 with some proper chain oil. Really great! For the cleaning the bike it works fantastically as well, and - no joke - it works as a good oil/fat based stain remover. I've used it on my carpet and on some cloths to good effect - disclaimer, I did experience some slight discolouration, but very minor.
Mr ArmstrongHadn't used this before and really impressed. Used neat on the chain and cassette and got a filthy drive train clean and shiny. Very impressed and would buy again.
PaclaVery good indeed, by far the best drivetrain cleaning product I've used.
Brian TrousersThe best product of its type I have used. Brings the chain up sparkly and new when used with the Park Tools chain bath. Use diluted generally on the rest of the bike in a similar way to Muc-Off.
Mr McbrineGreat for degreasing chains and also cleans rest of bike when diluted
Mr ScreenUsed this for years. Neat for chains, sprockets etc and diluted in spray bottle for general cleaning. Great product.
Mr NaisbittThe best bike cleaner on the market in my opinion. Used neat in a chain scrubber or diluted for general cleaning it gives great results in no time at all. Good value for your money as well
NdaveFirst time using this and it is Great stuff, really works well compared to previous other aerosol makes used.
Mr baylissI love the product, have used it for years but never found a 5ltr bottle untill I came to merlin cycles. Great product and great delivery, the order was despatched on monday and arrived the next day. Very happy with the product and merlin cycles.
Matthew TwiggerWorks superbly well. Have only used non-diluted so far but, in conjunction with a Park Tools chain bath, got everything sparkly clean!
Mr JackExcellent product. Use it diluted for cleaning and neat for complete degreasing. Have found it to be excellent on all parts of the bike. No worries about damage to the paint work etc. No sticky residue left unlike other well known products I have used
Dr MurrayExcellent product. Cleans the chain real good
Mr Kucuk-koseI use this in a Park Tools chain bath. It does remove the majority of gunk, however, after using the chain bath a bit of scrubbing and elbow grease is required to ensure that the chain is squeaky clean.
Alex MasidloverCleaned up old bike parts very effectively.
Mr CornickReally really good product. Cleans & degreasers like magic.
CopsThis stuff is great - either dilute for genearal cleaning duties or use as concentrate on chains etc. Fast delivery again!
Mr ClarkLove this stuff. I just use a brush to get the stuff on my chain and gears then rinse it off after a couple of minutes, with water. Clean as a whistle. Not used it diluted yet for the rest of the bike, but I am going to soon.
Mr SargeantI only use this for cleaning, it does everything I need and lasts for ever!

Mr doreExcellent service as usual, i always check with merlin first. Thanks again
Tim StorrOnly used once but seems excellent. Only needed a small amount to bring the rear cassette up like new. Will dilute to use as a general frame/wheel cleaner.
Jon BlunnThis is the best cleaning fluid as it is concentrated so goes much further than a squirty bottle. Also used concentrated really cleans chains!
Mr LeatherlandUnbeatable value bike cleaner. Use neat to degrease chain etc. or dilute and use it like Muc-off. The best bike cleaner.
P HurstWorks really well for cleaning chain and chainset although you do need to scrub with toothbrush if very dirty
Mr HarriesExcellent stuff! Use neat as degreaser on mucky chains and dilute for other parts.
Jon ClementsSecond time I've ordered this. I use it neat on the chain with a chain cleaning device and dilute it down to give the whole bike a wash. Highly recommended.
Mr HINDMARCHThis cleaner when diluted to whatever strength you require, is first class. It beats the 'MUC OFF' product by a mile, and works out a lot cheaper. Highly recommend it. It's gereat for alloy car wheels as well.
Mr hawkinsGreat cleaner that does it all; dilute for using all over the bike (1/20 is fine) or use neater for degreasing (1/2). I can confirm that you can use on discs and pads with no problems.
Mr NetherwoodSeems to work much better than other chain degreasers I have used. Good price, good service.
Steve in DevonMakes up to 10 litres of bike cleaner when diluted which easily stands up to similar products for a fraction of the price. A bottle of this will last me approx 2 years and we have 8 bikes in the stable! Absolute bargain
Mr FletcherHave been using this stuff for years, does what it says and is good value for money.
Mr SargeantBeen using it for 3 years and always does the job, either diluted for a wash or neat on the greasy stuff.
Mr FruitbatUse neat in chain cleaner. Dilute 10:1 for general cleaning. Economical, smells nice. Can also be used to clean conservatories and othe PVCu stuff.
Mr RobertsonThis is the best cleaning liquid on the market. Delivered quickly and as described.
Mr KendallDoes what it should do. 1 litre dilutes down to last ages.
Mr harperThis stuff is great much kinder on the bike than muck off. Dilute down to make 11litres in total and spray it every where. Makes cleaning far easier.
