Can I polish my bike?
Apply the thinnest layer of wax evenly using a sponge usually given inside the polish box. You will need another clean cloth to gently rub the polish over the bike surface. Then use a dry cloth to rub the polish gently until the shine arrives.
How do you remove old paint from a bike?
The first thing you want to do is get a rag and maybe some water. Wipe down the frame and make sure the surface area is nice and clean. Once the bike is clean, fill a small container with the paint remover. Use the brush to spread the paint remover over the frame.
What is the fastest way to remove paint from metal?
In fact, an incredibly effective paint remover for metal is boiling water. This technique is best for removing old paint from items like hardware, hinges, knobs, etc, and is likely the fastest, easiest, and cheapest option if done correctly.
Can you use car wax on a bicycle?
After your new paint has had a few months to cure, you should be able to use car polish or wax on it to protect it. I’ve used Turtle Wax on my bikes for years and years with no problems, but any quality polish or wax you prefer should work.
Can I wash my bike with dish soap?
Just like when washing dishes, warm water cleans better. Use a biodegradable dishwashing liquid or similar soap, and mix it in one of the buckets. If the bike is to be clamped, scrub inside the jaws holding the bike.

Is it worth fixing up an old bike?
A department store quality bike is almost never a good repair investment. If the integrity of the frame is compromised, it’s time for a new bike. If the frame is bent, cracked, rusted through, has broken welds, a stuck seatpost or bottom bracket, it’s time for it to be retired.

What household items can I use to clean my bike?
Soap / general cleaner: Use diluted dishwashing soap or preformulated bike wash cleaner for frame cleaning. Degreaser: A bike-specific degreaser (avoid kerosene or turpentine) will clean up gummy parts like your bike chain. Choose a solvent that is easy on the environment (and you). Dispose of all solvents properly.
