Two products on review first is the Revive High Performance cleaner, And also Flaer Guard Protector Spray..
The guys at Flaer have a great Blog at http://flaer.com/bike-place-london-bike-show/
I found using the Flaer Revive one of the easiest bike cleaners I’ve ever used, instructions are simple.

Flaer say on the label the “Revive is a high performance bike cleaner”, and once I was into the process of cleaning the bike it’s obvious why they say that, I chose to clean a small test patch first before setting about my frame and wheels to clean, I was glad to say the test proved a success, and I carried on, instructions as per rear label “simply rotate nozzle to the on position then pull the trigger” applying directly to the area to be cleaned and leave up to 5 minutes, rinsing off with clean water, for the stubborn areas use a brush or cloth before rinsing...
That was the plan, I was ok up to the point of “leave on for up to 5 minutes”, and as you can guess, I got side tracked with doing something else, by the time I realise what the time was, parts of the bike frame and wheels had dried to a streaky finish, all my own fault, as I was cleaning the bike in the garden and enjoying the sun, (Yes, we do have Sun down South!) Anyway, I had no need to panic, when I’m cleaning my bike I do not use a Pressure washer or garden house, I simply use a hand pressure sprayer, I find it’s easy to simply fill With water and pump the handle and Point to where you need it, and spray, take a look at the @Silvertools website, https://www.silverlinetools.com Hand Sprayer perfect control to wet down the Bike, for the stubborn parts I used a sponge to Clean off the stubborn bits on the bike, with a bit of rubbing, the dirt is off, once dirt removed I Simply spray with clean water and then dry and Polish with a cloth, I dry the wheels and frame using a cloth, I found the Revive bought the wheels and tyres up like a New Look, they looked amazing, had a nice feel to the tyres as well.

On completion of the bike clean it was time to use the Revive Guard, it does what the description says, it “Guards” your frame and wheels, once your finished cleaning and polishing your pride and joy, it’s time to protect the Bike with the Flear Guard for the next ride, instructions was the usual “Open nozzle and squeeze the trigger” to spay where needed, but personally I thought it was going to be a bit wasteful, and apart from going everywhere so I decided to use a Ora Kitchen towel, (brilliant towels) Ora Kitchen Towle you can of course use a microfibre cloth just as good..
The way I used the Flear Guard was very simply spraying on to the Ora and wipe the wheels and tyres including the frame and front forks in fact the whole bike was treated, finish result was a “As Good As New Look” on my tyres wheels frame, really impressive, the way the Guard works it leaves a coating so when it’s cleaned after the ride next time it’s even easier to get clean... I love it.

My Verdict on Flaer Revive Bike Cleaner.
On the cleaning Of my bike which was caked in mud after a long ride, I found it to be one of the easiest products to use, even in the midday sun, had no problems with Guard drying once I was using it, the job Of cleaning was made into a pleasure to get the bike looking that clean in a short space of time, I never timed how long it had taken, maybe next time I will.
Great trigger design.
