Product Review: Zogics Citra Wipes

The folks of Zogics sent us some Citra Wipes to review.

Here’s some info about the wipes:

citra wipes

CitraWipes are portable, non-toxic degreaser hand wipes with natural citrus oil extracts for removing tough grease and grime.

CitraWipes have a pleasant mild citrus scent and are enriched with aloe vera and lanolin. These handy wipes are self-drying and require no water for use.

CitraWipes are individually packaged in 2.5 x 4 heavy-duty foil pouches that can be conveniently kept wherever life’s adventures might get dirty: bicycles, motorcycles, dirt bikes, ATVs, boats, cars, toolboxes, and much more!

CitraWipes retail $2.49 per two-pack. You can purchase FOUR (4) two-twin here for $9.96 (for a total of EIGHT individually packaged wipes).

FREE SHIPPING!

CitraWipes are made in the USA, and like all products offered by Zogics, a portion of their sales is donated to environmental organizations.

To review these wipes I tried to look at my dirtiest chain, but since I’m pretty anal about cleaning my chains on a weekly basis…yes I do…I couldn’t really find one that was super filthy. So I used the next best thing….Bearing Grease.

I made sure I spread the grease all over my hands.

I then opened up a packet of the Citra Wipes and used one towelette to clean off my hands.

After thoroughly cleaning my hands, the grease came off. My hands were clean and they smelled great!

I work on bikes ALL the time, and I can’t stand the smell of grease. Its a mix between fresh tar, some petroleum product and B.O. I do like how the Citra Wipes work and how they get your hands clean and smelling great. I didn’t even need water. With that said, and with the pictures showing you how well this works, then I can confidently recommend the Zogics Citra Wipes. Since they come in individual packets, I’d recommend you keep on in your pannier, or your seat/tool bag just in case you have a mechanical while riding.

    Wow…I am impressed! Those wipes really cut through the grease!

    What about the smell of Phil Wood’s green grease? That stuff is intoxicatingly delicious, and the smell takes forever to wash off!!!

    I could’ve used one of those yesterday, when my chain popped over the big ring onto my crank. Good thing I don’t have white bar tape…

    You can get a box of 100 vinyl gloves from a zillion places for well under $5. Put a pair in each bike and skip the whole getting dirty part.

    SMudge,

    That’s a pretty good alternative.
