    I've used oven cleaner for quite a while. It just loosens the dirt so it will come off with a rinse. Rinsing the dirt off verses scrubbing it off preserves the finish.

    Better than Pledge, just as fast, lasts longer, won't be removed by water

    oven cleaner with lye is a good tool to deanodize components.

    would never put it on my frame. it's nasty stuff.

    Lemon Pledge has long been discussed in detailing forums. Fact is, it's probably ok but why use what your grandmother wiped her tables with?
    I use a quality wax or poly seal.
    P21S makes an incredible wax and if you go the synthetic route, Klasse All in One is superb.
    Both are superb products in a field of enormously oversold products you find at Walmart or Autozone.
    Spend $17-30 on a product that is highly regarded.

    LP makes the paint shiny, is inexpensive, doesn't leave any build-up.

    can't imagine a $30 product doing a 30x better job...it's a bike, not a show car.

    For a $30 jar of supiorior wax or a $17 pint of primo polyseal you might use 50 cents worth of product.
    You decide.
    Your bike and car will thank you.
    Leave the Pledge for the coffee table.

    How does Lemon Pledge do on matte finishes? And before anyone asks why I would want to wax a matte finish, it gives it a nice uniform finish and removes any smudging often found on matte frames.

    dunno, I've used a few different brands...they all seem to work the same.

    there's nothing 'magic' about Pledge.

    I thought you would have an aversion to Orange

    The quick detailer that I use on my car between washes, also gets used on the bikes. Seems to work fine.

    I also use motorcycle detailer, great shine and cuts grease better.

    ,,,and to think, I was just looking at a 2012 thread but didn't want to post and resurrect the zombie.

    As I use wax-based chain lube, Pledge(tm) works to clean the chain. Helps dissolve waxy build-up and leaves a shine! (But it's not much of a lubricant, so re-lube afterwards.)

    I've used Pledge on acrylic aircraft windshields. It won't hurt anything. Just keep it away from the brakes.

    I wouldn't put anything with wax on that finish. To retain the original characteristics of the matte finish use soap and water and oil stripping agents like Windex . .

    Pledge is fine for your carbon bike. Actually good for the frame as it sheds dirt and bugs. Harley riders use it all the time to make their bikes shine. Just don't get it on the rims or you'll never be able to stop!
