The BenchtopPRO parts washer for dirty greasy parts was launched in November 2012, just one short year ago. It’s been a busy year for The BenchtopPRO. It has been used to clean bicycles, car engines, lawn mower parts, golf clubs, boat engines and so much more. Using the science of bio remediation, the solution is self cleaning and safe for the users hands.
In May 2013, The BenchtopPRO was named Popular Mechanics Tool of the Month. During the Spring and Summer it was featured on several DIY auto repair shows such as Truck U, GearZ and Two Guys Garage.
Some of the great comments that we heard were from our customers and reviewers are:
- Something like this can be your best friend, if you too have greasy wheel bearings, or a greasy old ’56 Ford steering box, or even just greasy hands.
- I was impressed with the quality of the brush fixture and couldn’t wait to get this thing fired up to see how it worked.
- I have honestly never encountered such a product before. Although I’ve used many parts washers in the past when working as a shop technician, the BenchtopPRO offers a new approach to parts washing.
- The finest iteration of a parts cleaner we’ve found has been the BenchtopPRO. We reviewed it about a year ago and love it more every day. Unlike some of the crazy high end units, this one is affordable for a hobbyist! The degreasing solution contains microbes that actually dissolve the grease, and you can use the solution over and over because it doesn’t really evaporate. The little spout in the middle of the old box has been replaced with a flexible hose with an amazing stiff bristle brush on the end. After a year of abusing this thing, the brush hasn’t even started to fray. I know I’m going on and on, but compared to other offerings, this BenchtopPRO is amazing.
- The parts washer we use currently is the BenchtopPRO. It’s been a real game changer around our shop, where we clean 50-year-old Porsche parts regularly.
- The recently launched BenchtopPRO provides smaller shops with a parts washer option that cleans the dirtiest and greasiest parts without damaging the environment or the user’s hands and clothes.
Old Man Winter is officially still more than a month away but cold temperatures have arrived right on time. It looks like those warm weekends are just about over so it’s time to clean and winterize your vehicles, watercraft, all terrain vehicles, bikes, sports equipment and lawn mowers. A bit of prevention can save you many dollars on future repairs, keep your valuables in good working condition and prepared to pull out of hibernation at the first signs of spring.
First step – A good cleaning is required and The BenchtopPRO is the portable parts washer made just for these garage type jobs. Whether cleaning bike gears, gardening tools, dirt bikes, golf clubs, lawn mowers or a boat engine, The BenchtopPRO cleans dirty greasy parts without damaging your hands or clothes. The attached brush works efficiently to clean the cracks and crevices and between cleanings the BTP solution cleans itself through a process called bio remediation. Simply stated, while stored away with the solution left in it, the enzymes eat the dirt and grease similar to the solution used to clean the Gulf of Mexico during the 2010 oil spill.

Benchtoppro Entire Kit
What is “bioremediating”, you may wonder? Well, we did too, so like anyone with a “smart device” of sorts, we went directly to Wikipedia and found out for ourselves: “Bioremediation is the use of micro-organism metabolism to remove pollutants. … Bioremediation can occur on its own (natural attenuation or intrinsic bioremediation) or can be spurred on via the addition of fertilizers to increase the bioavailability within the medium. Recent advancements have also proven successful via the addition of matched microbe strains to the medium to enhance the resident microbe population’s ability to break down contaminants. Microorganisms used to perform the function of bioremediation are known as bioremediators.”
Benchtoppro Concentrate And Micropro Pack
Still wondering what in the heck this biowhatchamacallit process is all about? Well, in short, it’s a new green process for riding toxic compounds from various parts. Introducing the BenchtopPRO, the first ever bioremediating bench-top parts washer designed for the DIYer—that’d be us—in a home garage or small repair shop.
Using technology and professional-grade cleaning solutions previously available only to large automotive and industrial customers, the BenchtopPRO is perfectly suited to clean greasy, dirty, oily parts—the types of stuff gearheads deal with on a regular basis. Non-hazardous, non-toxic, and non-flammable, the revolutionary parts washer offers a safe alternative to hazardous solvents—without compromising cleaning performance like other environmentally safe processes.
The secret behind it all: BT5 degreasing solution, which continually cleans itself through the process of bioremediation—when you are ready to clean, the fluid is clean and ready. Designed to tackle the most challenging parts washing applications, BT5 is the first bioremediating degreaser that delivers amazing results at room temperature. Used with the microbial agent, the MicroPRO Pack, BT5 cleans like no other—and its pH neutral mixture of emulsifiers and surfactants contains no solvents. It is blended in liquid form to produce a biodegradable, non-toxic, non-caustic, non-flammable, and non-hazardous oil dispersant and degreaser. The BT5 formula contains no harmful chemicals, carcinogens, or hazardous waste.
Finally, a truly clean parts cleaner!

Matthew Wright reviewed The BenchtopPRO earlier this year and liked it so much he wrote about it again in a recent article about Parts Cleaning Products – What Works Best
Here’s an excerpt from the article.
Professional style parts cleaners. If you visited a shop 20 years ago you would have seen a big, red, metal box plugged into the wall. This box contained a little sprayer and a few gallons of very chemically parts cleaner. These are still available today, and many people use them. The upside is they are a proven way to clean parts, but many people mistakenly think they are like a dishwasher for car parts. There is still plenty of scrubbing and rubbing involved in getting the gunk to come off. And the chemicals are harsh so high grade chemical-resistant gloves are a must, as well as adequate ventilation. These days there is an alternative. Gone are the nasty, volatile chemicals, replaced with biodegradable degreasing agents that actually recycle themselves! The cleaning box has come a long way, too. The finest iteration of a parts cleaner we’ve found has been the BenchtopPRO. We reviewed it about a year ago and love it more every day. Unlike some of the crazy high end units, this one is affordable for a hobbyist! The degreasing solution contains microbes that actually dissolve the grease, and you can use the solution over and over because it doesn’t really evaporate. The little spout in the middle of the old box has been replaced with a flexible hose with an amazing stiff bristle brush on the end. After a year of abusing this thing, the brush hasn’t even started to fray. I know I’m going on and on, but compared to other offerings, this BenchtopPRO is amazing. Check out the review.

Bill from Andy’s Auto Sport TV reviewed The BenchtopPRO this week. Bill is a guy who really understands and appreciates a bio friendly parts washer, describing The BenchtopPRO as a great portable solution for your parts cleaning needs.
Here’s some of the highlights from the video.
An amazing difference between the clean and dirty rocker shaft, compared to when we started.
Degreasing solution - Non toxic, non corrosive, non polluting, non flammable - smells good, like citrus
Bio-friendly: Solution microbes are same as ones used to clean up the 2010 Gulf oil spill – the microbes “eat” the grease
The BenchtopPRO is lightweight, spill proof, self contained
Great for your garage or portable for your weekend adventures at the racetrack or off roading.
5 year warranty on every component including the pump and the brush

Syd from Singletracks gave The BenchtopPRO a good workout cleaning his mountain bike components. Read on to see all of his great comments and pictures.
While looking around for a better way to clean my cassette bodies and other mountain bike components, I stumbled across a company called ChemFree. ChemFree sells an innovative product called the BenchtopPRO bioremediating parts washer.
I have honestly never encountered such a product before. Although I’ve used many parts washers in the past when working as a shop technician, the BenchtopPRO offers a new approach to parts washing.
The BenchtopPRO combines the process of bioremediation, “the use of micro-organism metabolism to remove pollutants” (according to Wikipedia), with a revolutionary non-flammable degreasing solution engineered to work at room temperature.
I am not one who is easily impressed with gimmicky tools, so I can honestly say that the BenchtopPRO is not a gimmick and is actually quite impressive. Most importantly, it actually works as intended. There are no lies and no false claims here.
Having been a technician for years and now working as a shop teacher, I’ve had more than my share of smelly, toxic fumes while hanging around the parts washer, and I was tired of stinking up the shop area while the parts washer’s surface dried up. The BenchtopPRO totally resolves those issues: this unit gives off virtually no odor.
Another huge plus is the fact that the fluid has had no ill effect on my hands. I cannot tell you how happy that makes me feel. I love keeping my bike clean, but I just hated when my hands would get raw and irritated from cleaning solvents. I do use gloves when I work, but sometimes you can’t when it comes to cleaning smaller parts.
I am super stoked with the performance of the BenchtopPRO! The MSRP for the full kit is $389, but as of the time of this writing Benchtop has it on sale for $299. Later on when it comes time to recharge the tank, it will cost about $65 for new BT5 solution and MicroPacs. Yes, it can be a bit costly, but it’s a small price to pay for a product that is much safer and healthier to use than other options.
If you’re a gear head, this is the washer for you!

Thanks David, from Herndon, Virginia for taking the time to tell us about your experience with The BenchtopPRO.
Here’s what David had to say:
I am very pleased with The BenchtopPRO. I restore old motorcycles and, honestly, the old solvent based parts cleaners were a source of anxiety and consternation for me. I hated the smell in the garage, the jeopardy to the environment, and, well it’s a huge fire hazard to have several gallons of flammable solvent sitting out in the garage attached to one’s house.
I’ve spent a lot of semi-wasted time trying to put together a DIY aqueous parts cleaning setup, and in the process of Internet research, I discovered The BenchtopPro. It was exactly what I was trying to do, except one important feature: I’m neither a chemist nor a biologist, so I was never going to be able to develop an effective solvent or bioremediation technique. Plus, the low cost, portability, and engineering of the BenchTopPro makes a DIY solution seem pretty silly and not cost-effective.
The BenchTopPro is wonderful and it’s literally the perfect solution (no pun intended) for many of us.
