Oxford Products has come out with a comprehensive and reasonably priced range of brushes to wash pretty much every part of your bike. My favourite is the Double Stubble, which is made with two different stiffnesses of bristles. This means that you can use the softer ones for less mucky parts of the bike and switch to the harder ones when you have some really stuck on – well you know what is usually really hard to shift. The brush is also sufficiently small to get into trickier parts of the bike’s anatomy, such as between the bottom bracket and the wheel. It comes in at £3.99.
If you prefer a broader brush, then the Big Softie at £4.99 might be for you. It’s got bristles with softer ends to avoid scratching and will deal with larger areas at a time than the Double Stubble.
£4.99 also buys you a Wheely Clean wheel brush. It’s got quite stiff bristles and a narrow design to get between spokes and hubs, while for £3.99 the Claw Brush tackles drivetrains, with a claw at one end to get between the cassette sprockets and a small bristle brush at the other to deal with derailleurs.

The range is completed by the Prong Brush with a U-shape which is useful for wheels, forks and stays and the Tyre Scrub brush at £3.99 to get your side walls shiny – although this looks more suited to motorcycle and car tyres.
All the brushes are made of blue plastic and have comfortable easy-grip rubber handles.
