Zep - The Best Products for Your Garage

Below is a great review by Ed from If you would like to be featured on our blog, please email us at

Many of you that know me or have worked alongside me in the shop, know that I am an avid user of tools that make the job easier. It’s not that I am a lazy person, I just believe in technology and the fact that it is here to make life better for everyone. From the shop laptop that fold flat up against the wall to avoid collecting dirt, to the plethora of specialty tools that can make a billable labor hour take only 10 minutes; if it makes my job easier, I’m all for it.

I have always been this way and it doesn't just apply to my hand tools; if there is a product available that works and cuts down on time and effort, I’ll buy it. Take a look at my chemical cabinet and it looks like a Zep warehouse. I have always used their products to clean and detail the motorcycles that come through here and they have made daily riders look like show bikes in half the time.

That’s why when my parts guy told me that Zep had a complete line of automotive products available, I jumped on the chance to buy a can of each. I picked up a can of Engine Degreaser, some Carb Spray (for that Honda CB out there that refuses to start) and a case of their Brake Cleaner because we all know how much I use brake cleaner around here! I can usually be found cleaning tools with it, killing wasps and even de-gumming transfer cases to find leaks. Heck, I even use it to wash my hands and sometimes, very rarely, to clean brakes!

I was so excited to use my new stuff (I know, it’s the little things) that I sprayed some on my Buell to clean up the primary case and rode on home. I have had the products for a little over a week now and every one of them has exceeded my expectations. Did you ever buy something that you thought might work well and then it just blew you away? That’s what Zep products do; they blow you away with how well they perform!

I’m not one to shout from the rooftops about how good a product is (except Bridgestone tires, I really like them), but Zep Brake Cleaner, Carb Spray and Engine Degreaser work better than any other brand I have used. I have come to expect incredible results from their products and their new automotive line is no different. Try them yourself and you’ll know what I mean.
