There’s no shortage of bike cleaning products on the market. Many of these are tough on dirt and grease, unfortunately, they’re also hard on the environment. That’s where Muc-Off’s new Punk Powder comes in.


Powder Power

Like your favorite energy drink, this grime-fighter comes in powdered form. Why is this a big deal? Well, this is the world’s first 100% plastic-free bike cleaner. It has the same cleaning power as Muc-Off’s legendary pink bike cleaner in a compact and easy-to-transport form. From compostable packaging to plant-based ingredients, Punk Powder is easier on the environment than its competitors.

Additionally, using a powder-based cleaner has a much smaller carbon footprint. Think of all the packaging and weight (and therefore fuel) needed to transport pre-mixed cleaners from the factory to your front door. Punk Powder packets weigh just 30 grams and use 92% less packaging than traditional cleaners.

Most of us already have a few empty spray bottles collecting dust in the corners of our workshops. Using a powdered cleaner is a great way to repurpose your empty bottle of bike cleaner. The packaging even doubles as a funnel to get Punk Powder into the bottle!


The environmental benefits of Punk Powder are great, but using concentrated cleaning packets has other benefits, especially for riders on the go. If you frequently travel to ride, having a bike cleaner that takes up a minimal amount of space (and that can’t spill) is a huge bonus. Just add one liter of water per packet, shake and spray. Like all of Muc-Off’s cleaners, Punk Powder is safe to use on carbon frames, drivetrains, and disc brakes.

The Bottle for Life Bundle includes two Punk Powder packets and a tough (and recyclable) aluminum spray bottle that’ll stand the test of time. It comes with a non-toxic, food-grade silicone base to protect the bottle, so it’ll last even longer if dropped (while protecting any surface it’s dropped on) and offer increased stability when placed on uneven ground. The Bottle for life is also compatible with Muc-Off’s Pressure Washer snow foam lancer attachment.


Bikes are a great way to reconnect with nature and Muc-Off is doing its part to make sure its products have the lowest impact on the environment. Learn more about Punk Powder here.
