This is the second of three wetsuit shampoo / cleaner reviews I’ll be doing and this is my ‘Coco Loco Wetsuit Cleaner Review’.

We’ll be going through the pro’s and con’s of this wetsuit cleaner, finishing off with whether I would recommend it. Like with the previous wetsuit cleaner review, these are just my views on the product in the hope it will help those looking for a new wetsuit shampoo / cleaner to use.

Good Things About The Product

So, let’s start with the good things about Coco Loco’s wetsuit cleaner…

✔️  It’s a non-toxic wetsuit cleaner. The guys who make Coco Loco (Dirtbusters) have an ethos that they want to have as little an impact on the environment as possible.
✔️  It completely removes any bad odours and gives your wetsuit a nice eucalyptus smell that remains even when the wetsuit is dry.
✔️  It’s cheaper than some wetsuit cleaning alternatives.
✔️  The design on the bottle looks cool.


Not So Good Things About The Product

✖️  The instructions on the bottle are a bit vague, doesn’t give the amount of solution needed per litres of water for one wash.
✖️  Not sure you can get five washes out the 250ml as the bottle looks on the small side.


Would I Recommend This Product?

So, the main question… would I recommend Coco Loco as a wetsuit cleaner to you guys? Well, my answer is yes but this does depend on what you’re after in a wetsuit cleaner…

If you’re after a wetsuit cleaner that will primarily remove any bad odours than this wetsuit cleaner is absolutely for you. Coco Loco’s solution is a deodouriser first and a cleaner second.

Coco Loco Wetsuit Cleaning Shampoo


As I’m personally after a wetsuit cleaner that focuses on just the cleaning aspect I think there’re better solutions on the market. However, there is no harm in having a bottle spare so I can easily freshen up my wetsuit every few months.


Similar Wetsuit Shampoo Alternatives

So, what would I recommend as a good wetsuit shampoo that focuses on cleaning rather than deodourising? There are two that I think do a better job at cleaning…


O’Neill’s Wetsuit Cleaner + Conditioner

The first is by O’Neill who have their own wetsuit cleaner and conditioner. I would recommend this ahead of the Coco Loco’s cleaner based on the cleaning alone. It’s also the product I used as part of my How To Wash a Wetsuit post.

Rip Curl’s Piss Off Wetsuit Shampoo

The second wetsuit cleaning is by Rip Curl and again offers a better cleaning solution than Dirtbusters Coco Loco Wetsuit Cleaner and Deodoriser. Rip Curl’s Piss Off Wetsuit Shampoo is a good wetsuit cleaner and offers an additional shield like protectant onto the wetsuit material.
