    Michael Daiuto: Hi, I'm Michael at Pro-Clean Of Tysons Corner, automotive cleaning specialist for over 25 years. Today, we are going to learn how to do a wash and a light detail on a motorcycle.

    These are some of the things you are going to need, of course, you are going to need a motorcycle; a bucket, any average bucket; a wash mitt, liquid car wash, some heavy detergent, Fantastic, 409 anything like that, diluted 50-50 in a spray bottle, and a good hose, a pair of goggles, and some wash gloves, get those on. Again, very inexpensive, you can buy at any hardware store or anything like that. Get your bucket, your liquid car wash, put about three or four caps into the bucket, so all you need it will suds up very good. Make sure a mitts in there, get the hose, just enough to suds it up, so it gets enough suds in there. Our heavy-duty detergent, which is Fantastic or 409 half-in-half water.

    Let's get the bike nice and wet. Always remember, keep everything wet when you are washing it, and that should do it.

    Let' get ready to wash it then.
