Punk Powder has landed! Here at Muc-Off, we’re always looking for rad new ways to reduce single-use plastic and water usage along with our carbon footprint as part of our Project Green initiative. So we set ourselves the epic task of producing the world’s first plastic-free bike cleaner!
It took the lab boffins over three years to create this high-tech powder cleaner wizardry. Why so long? Well, it’s really difficult to create something in a powdered form that offers phenomenal cleaning power, whilst also being plastic free, readily biodegradable and which contains as many plant-based ingredients as possible. We trialled over 20 development variations before landing on the one; but here it is – ready for you to experience the future of bike cleaning.
Punk Powder Bike Cleaner - Twin Pack makes 4x liters of bike cleaner!
Some bike cleaners out there have a carbon footprint bigger than the Jurassic Park T-Rex, but not us. We’re always looking for new ways to reduce our plastic and water usage along with our CO2 output; so we got cracking on the epic task of developing the ultimate powder-based cleaner! Over three years, we tested and tinkered with hundreds of versions until we landed on the one. Formulated using the latest technological advancements and the finest biodegradable ingredients (75% of which are plant-based!) our newest creation is not only incredibly safe for you and the environment, but also for all bikes and finishes.
At Muc-Off, we don’t do things by halves. Punk Powder delivers the signature cleaning power you’ve come to expect, but with readily biodegradable ingredients and 92% less packaging than two of our standard 1L bottles it truly is a guilt-free gleam! The fast-dissolving formula means it’s ready for use within seconds of water being added, and if you want to go full eco-warrior you can even use collected rainwater! Simply reuse your old Muc-Off bottle or grab one of our new aluminum Bottles for Life and get busy cleaning – it even works with our pressure washer to create an awesome foam for the fastest clean possible.
It’s not just the powder that’s green and mean (on grime), but the packaging too. It’s 100% plastic-free, and each sachet is compostable (certified to EN 13432 standard) and made from renewable raw materials. We’ve even used vegetable-based inks!
From production right through to the powder itself, sustainability is built in. So you can shred hard, with a clean bike and conscience. Punk Powder is the future of bike cleaning – the future is here!
[tab name='HOW TO'']
Bike Cleaning Instructions
Top Tip – Don’t forget to always protect components after washing with our MO-94, Bike Protect or HCB-1 and your frame and suspension using our Silicone Shine! This will help reduce dirt adhesion between washes and make maintenance easier!
IS THIS REALLY THE WORLDS FIRST PLASTIC FREE BIKE CLEANER, BECAUSE AREN'T THERE SOME BIKE CLEANERS THAT COME IN A DISSOLVABLE PACKET?
Yes, but the other bike cleaner sachet in the market still uses petrochemicals to produce it and is still a form of plastic called PVA. Because we have an end-to-end sustainability goal with this product, we wanted to minimise petrochemical processes in the production of Punk Powder.
92% SAVING IN PACKAGING YOU SAY, HOW DID YOU CALCULATE THAT?
Take 2 bottles of bike cleaner that comes in an HDPE plastic bottle, with a plastic heat sleeve to hold the trigger and then a cap, compared with 4 compostable sachets of Punk Powder in a recycled box and you have 92% saving in packaging.
THERE'S STILL SOME POWDER UNDISSOLVED AT THE BOTTOM OF MY BOTTLE AFTER FILLING?
If possible, use lukewarm water when re-filling with Punk Powder, this enables the powder-based formula to dissolve and active faster. Continue shaking and it will fully dissolve ready to get cleaning!

Yes, we always recommend a pre-rinse before using Punk Powder.
