Best product ever for your drivetrain!

I love my bikes being spotless. I love washing my bikes. I find it relaxing and also help to maintain them at their best and extend their life and value.
A grimy bicycle it's always a pity to look at and mechanical parts get worn quicker. I do it roughly once a week or every time they need it. I can say that I have used almost every product on the market. Not being paid by anyone, I can state that the best products on a value-for-money basis are with no doubts the Muc-Off ones. Which sometimes come overpriced, because of their efficiency and fame. (Stock them when you find good prices!) This degreaser has always been my favourite one. It's really hardworking, there's no kind of dirt it can't remove. I restored an old chain from a rusty BMX not being used for years, and it turned out almost as new. It's also safe for the environment, which to me is really a big deal. I just simply hated its older spray nozzle, the one still pictured, as it used to leak and break after a few sprays, wasting a lot of expensive liquid every time. I since started applying it with a brush, to avoid the mess caused by the leaking nozzle.
It's now the first time that the price on Amazon is better than specialized cycling websites, so why not grab a few?
SURPRISINGLY, they came with a new spray, which was the real trouble on the former version. This new spray nozzle deserved a test, and a good review, because now it's truly flawless. It's like your usual spray detergent nozzle. It's bigger than before, more ergonomic and certainly more secure. In the long run it will save you loads of liquid compared to the brush method, which I still keep for extreme dirt situations.
Invest on a good chain brush machine, those plasticky boxes with spinning brushes that cost a few quids online, and you'll be set.
Just spray it all over the drivetrain, chain, sprockets, pedals, cranksets, leave it for a good 15 minutes, and then brush away the biggest dirt, flush with fresh water, re-apply a bit of it, other 15 mins, flush again this time with a clean sponge, and you'll be done.
Your drivetrain will look as new. If I can give you a good advice, go a bit over, spray a bit of my favourite GT-85 (which sometimes costs 1/5 of the Muc-Off MO-95, which is basically the same formula) and you'll be sure the water you flushed your chain with will go away and your chain will be protected from rusting.
Then let it dry and lube it all over with a few drops of their ceramic lubes, that cost like 2-3 pounds more than the basic ones, but are on a completely different level and will save your gears for ages.
