Recently got told about 'Loosen Up' maintenance spray from Wilco, so I decided to try a can. It's supposed to be a light lubricant (unlike WD40 :? ), penetrates very well and dries to leave a very light waxy coating. Just the job for protecting lathes, bikes etc in damp sheds over the winter. A lot of Trials riders use it as a chain lube because it's not tacky and attractive to grit.

Best of all.........it's £1 a can :yup: :D

If you do drink it, it will "Loosen Up" the clacker.

For £1 a can you can't go to far wrong (apart from washing the stuff of in the spring). I'm buying two in the morning.....one for my bike and one to squirt down my under krackers lOl

Having just stripped my gearbox again on the '49, just to polish the cases, I'll give it a try. If it stops the white fur, then it is a bargain. :yup:
Where do you get it from? I googled it, but it came up blank. :?
