And have nothing but rave reviews. My bike has 3 hours on it, so to make sure the “spray and walk away” wash style I heard about on here was the truth- I used it on my pretty dingy boots. Amazing how well it worked. And I used a Ninja 2200 psi electric washer, for reference.

11/10 score. Will always buy shout now. Mad at myself for buying simple green for 15 years.

You mean you didn't send your boots to the UK and get paid for it??

I always use tide and wash the bike with a mit, but everything came out good man!

That must be what my guy in the UK uses, very clean, but very sticky.

Your bike/gear wouldn’t get so dirty if you just rode green lanes mostly.

|

Yep, my routine for years:

1) Soak
2) Shout and Maxima Chain Cleaner w/grunge brush
3) Rinse
4) Leaf Blower to dry
5) WD40 hard parts
6) Maxima SC1 plastics / seat

I cringed when I heard Matthes on recent podcast recommend simple green, it'll etch and eat away at your bike over time.

SC1 on your seat? Sounds like a slippery bad time to me

Interesting. I’ve used Simple Green for years on bikes, boots, and gear. Does Shout work that much better, or is it just less harsh, or both?

Come to think of it, ya, I should be sliding all over the place, but never an issue, I don't soak it in SC1, light mist, wipe down a minute or two later. Huh, maybe I'll avoid it next wash and see how much more grip I get.

Haha. Yeah I always try to avoid spraying it on my seat. Don’t know if it makes that big of a difference or not

Same here. I just assumed it would make the seat slippery.

This right here but I keep the sc1 off the seat. Nothing better than shout/wd_40/and Sc1. 35 hrs on my bike and motor and everything still looks as clean as the day I got it.

Leaf blower is out of habit before I invested in an air compressor, should just do that, thanks for the tip / idea.

How is shout less harsh than simple green? Just curious to the thoughts? I use a 50/50 mix of simple green on my MTB for suspension/brakes/chain, and a high quality car wash for the frame as if I washing a car. Seems to work well, but maybe shout is better? Convince me?

Do you dilute it or full strength?

I’ve used shout at full strength with zero negative results for probably 6 years or so now. It looks like simple green is definitely more alkaline than simple green and I’ve just not had great results with it. Shout is really a spray on let us sit for a few minutes and rinse off deal. It really dissolves mud somehow, cleans plastics especially white ones and brightens up the aluminum something awesome. Simple green just made everything seem dull and not as easy to rinse off than shout. My non scientific opinion but it’s worked great for me I always get compliments on my bikes and I don’t spend nearly as long as people think I do washing them

It’s cheap too! I buy one spray bottle then go to the grocery store and buy the refill jug for $5. Can refill the spray bottle a couple times for that. It’s like hot sauce I put it on everything haha

While Simple Green will do a better job of cutting through grease, exhaust drool and chain lube fling, the Shout does a better job with dirt and does not have an adverse effect on aluminum (particularly anodized) parts. Simple Green is alkaline enough that the FAA won't let it be used on planes; so Simple Green came up with an approved version called Extreme Simple Green (used to be called Simple Green Aircraft).

I think shout is a little better for dirt clean up

Simple green better on grease - which most of us DONT want cleaned up...

Ive been itching to try those products like slick (or whatever it was called) - just to see.
on a really muddy bike - neither shout or simple green do a damn thing until you get all the mud off.

When you guys spray it on do you wait for it to dry, and then rinse it off? I’ve been using it for years, I spray it on, give it a light scrub woth a soft brush and then rinse it off before it dries. It works pretty good but this was my method with simple green too which seemed to do just as good of a job, just dunno if I’m getting the most out of it.

I actually hose the dirt clumps off with the hose then spray Shout on everything. Wait a couple of minutes and hose it off. The Shout gets rid of the marks left behind by the dirt.
