How to use the Chain Cleaning Sponge
No need to wet bike beforehand even when dirt is dried on.
Step 1: Apply Fenwicks Foaming Chain Cleaner and allow to soak in.
Step 2: Insert chain into 'V' slot of sponge on the lower section of the chain.
Step 3: Holding sponge firmly in position, run the chain backwards through sponge for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Rinse chain thoroughly with clean water.
Step 5: Re-lube with any highly rated Fenwicks chain lube.
To clean the sponge, apply Fenwicks Foaming Chain Cleaner or Fenwicks FS-1 Bike Cleaner Concentrate to the “V” slot and rinse thoroughly.
Set your bike up so you can easily rotate the pedals backwards without it jumping gears (this prevents finger and knuckle injury by a spinning wheel), the best gear to use is a middle gear at the back and the small chainring at the front on a double and middle on a triple chainset.
Shake can of Fenwicks Foaming Chain Cleaner , rotate pedals at a good even pace and sprayFenwicks Foaming Chain Cleaner onto the chain at the point where the chain moves over the cassette. This is an art, if the foam falls off the chain for any reason don't worry you can pick it up and apply it with your fingers to the chain or cassette. You should see the chain being coated in the foam, it will also coat the rear derailler, you can easy move the foam around if it builds up in any one place by using your fingers.
Once the chain is fully coated, leave for a while for the foam to work on the chain grime. The foam will slowly dissolve as it works.
Attached the sponge to the chain by opening the v shaped slit and place over the chain.
Grip the sponge firmly, rotate the pedals for 30 seconds to a minute allowing the chain to pass through the sponge which will remove the grime from the chain.
Remove the sponge from the chain to see the grime collected in the sponge, the sponge can then be rinsed out using water.
Rinse the chain down with clean water and then relube with one of our highly rated Fenwicks lubes.
Only use the sponge on chain and tyres as it may scratch your frame and we wouldn't want that.
