Yesterday I carried my spouse's juice bottle in a trunk bag on my back rack. The bottle leaked and soaked the truck bag. Which then dripped down on the rear wheel. Now the whole entire bike is a sugary mess. It doesn't take much to create a big mess.

Sugar though is easier to clean up than grease.

I usually use windex to clean my bikes. I have used an orange cleaner as a degreaser.
