ATV Wash: How to Remove Mud Stains

ATV wash - how to remove mud stainsThinking to buy yourself a sweet little all-terrain vehicle (ATV) to kick off the summer’s festivities? That’s all good, but you have to arm yourself with the proper knowledge regarding ATV wash, care and maintenance before you actually take one home. Your little road warrior is subjected to even greater wear and tear than an ordinary car, despite the fact that you don’t use it as frequently as the latter.

ATV dirt bike can accumulate mud, dust, dirt, and other muck faster than you can imagine—

and these adhere to the vehicle with a vise-like grip. After all, it’s not called a dirt bike for nothing. Before you know it, your off-road ATV will look like it’s been two or three war-zones already, and you will need to shell out some serious cash to get it looking like new again.

Fortunately, if you’re a fan of DIY cleaning, there are a few things you can do before and after every trip to ensure that your ATV retains its pristine looks for as long as possible. Given the conditions that you drive your ATV through, you might think that it’s impossible to make it look clean for any length of time, but you can actually do something to remedy the situation.

First steps to proper ATV wash

A high-pressure washer is your first option for getting rid of the muck on your ATV dirt bike. Seal your oil and grease uptake tubes properly so the water doesn’t get in and encourage freezing when the weather turns cold. This will effectively and quickly blast away all the visible dirt, making it possible for you to see the original color of the vehicle once more.

You will most certainly be dirtying your hands in the cleanup process, so better have some latex gloves on hand if you don’t want the dirt coming into contact with your skin. The high-pressure water will loosen or wash away crud from most areas of your ATV, but you will have to manually work at certain places to take out the dirt. For this part of the job, you can use a brush, sponge or wash mitt to help you dislodge the dirt faster. Be sure to dispose of the dirty wash materials afterward—they won’t be of much use for any other cleaning chore after meeting your ATV.

Once most of the dirt has come off, you’re ready to go the extra mile to bring back your ATV’s good looks.

Wash the ATV with soapy water, scrubbing off the caked-on mud with a soft bristle brush. You won’t need a stiff one for the job because the high-pressure washer and your manual scrubbing will most certainly have loosened the dirt. Rinse the entire thing to see if you’ve missed any spots.

How to remove mud stains on your ATV?

Just apply a generous amount of your preferred ATV cleaning product, such as a tire cleaner. This will restore your machine’s high-gloss shine in no time at all. When that’s done, rinse the vehicle one last time and allow it to air dry before storing it back in your garage.
