Update: Honda Spray Cleaner & Polish


Who'dda thunk it? My March 23rd post regarding Honda Spray Cleaner & Polish generated the largest-ever number of visits to this site by far, and also numerous posts on various message boards. It seems I'm not the only out-of-the-closet clean-bike nut, nor the only one who swears by Honda's magic elixir. Just to add more mystery to the origin and marketing of SC&P, I received an anonymous comment with additional information, which I promptly checked out. Thanks to Mr. (or Ms.) Anon, we now know that Honda Spray Cleaner & Polish, masquerading as "Amrep Original Spray Cleaner & Polish" and available in strangely-familiar packaging (see image at right; note the word "Original" where we're used to seeing "Honda"), is available from this vendor for only about $6 per can. Apparently, this product was/is manufactured for Honda by Petro Chemical under a private-labeling agreement. Perhaps Petro Chemical is also manufacturing this, or very similar (less the distinctive odor) product for Motorcycle Stuff...or not...the world may never know the complete answer to this vital, burning question. Where's the Mystery Machine and crew when you need them?

That's great news. I read somewhere that the sale of the Spray Cleaner is illegal in some States now. Maybe it will still be available under this new brand. That is definitely the best cleaning & polishing compound I've ever tried. The problem is that after an evening of motorcycle stunting, the bike looks horrible and this stuff cleans off everything within a few minutes.

Hmmmm.

What doesn't make sense is if Honda ceased having the spray cleaner/polish manufactured because of US EPA restrictions, then how can another US manufacturer be making the exact same product now? I doubt the fragrance of the Honda product was the EPA's objection.
