I use mucoff for mine, spray on leave for a while then rinse off. Gets the worst of it then just a cloth squeezed in wherever I can. The front doesn't seem to get too dirty for me, just brake dust which washes off easy enough as I've already put a few coats of poorboys wheel sealant on.

Make sure you wash your wheels thoroughly afterwards, WD40 is corrosive

Wd40 does attract dust. That's why i don't use it anymore. That and i sprayed some on my brakes. Took some sweat to get it all off.

The wife uses Avon Bubble Bath for everything. It’s mild, contains no harsh detergents, does not leave a residue and therefore if it dries before you get to rise you’ll never notice. Bonus, you can get it in many different scents like Pink Bubble Gum.

The best part is you can mix it as you need it. From a couple of caps full in water for the body work to full strength to clean the chain and chain lube covered parts.

For the wheel hubs she would use it full strength on a tooth brush working it in to remove lube or bearing grease. Same for heavily soiled spokes, but usually she would only need slightly stronger then what she used on the body. A soft cloth soaked in the mixture run up and down each individual spoke was good enough most of the time.
