There is a buzz online about a couple different individual packaged wipes. The first one we are going to talk about and get into a review is Grease Monkey Wipes. Designed originally for cyclist these degreaser wipes claim to even clean crayon off the wall.
Grease Monkey Wipes utilize an all natural, sustainable citrus formula that harnesses the power of Mother Nature to handle heavy duty cleaning. Our wipes clean without the use of harsh chemicals or environmentally, unfriendly solvents.
My first use of the Grease Monkey Wipes was during a degreasing of my chain and cassette using a product, El Duke Degreaser, that is under review at Commute By Bike. As you can see from the video below you can see the total time to clean up my moderately greasy hands took 1 minute and 18 seconds. A few things you can’t tell from photos or a video is the smell and feel of the wipes.
Smell : Using a citrus base the wipes of course smelled..citrus. It wasn’t an overwhelming smell but pleasant.
Touch : The wipes feel much like baby wipes, the kind that are fuzzy but with a plastic base. They feel strong and I’ll test out their strength as I clean my chain off with them under my next test.
Final Thoughts :
These wipes will be very handy for your saddle bag to use after you change a flat or put your chain back on. They are individually wrapped so as sustainable as they claim the waste is high if you use them often. I wish they would make something in a bulk form, much like a baby wipe, that you could keep in your shop or throw in a small zip lock, reusable, bag. As I mentioned I’ll be putting the wipes under various test including chain cleaning, crayon lines off the wall and anything else you guys could come up with.
