    Interesting. I think Simple Green's one of the most useless products I've ever used. Using it concentrated now just to get rid quicker.

    Kerosene or CRC work well, I use kero on the trucks alloys.

    i have a problem with oils from trees on my van, i live in the bush, simple green is better than anything else for removing it, i use it concentrated. i also use that in my ultrasonic cleaner too, as it's water soluble to rinse off.

    what sort of oils? i have this nasty tree that keeps dropping a white sticky sap on my car that then goes rock hard (like bird shit) on the outside, but still like chewing gum underneath. its a pain to get rid of. Ill give simple green a crack.

    I'd advise people to not spray it around wheel bearings though ... the sealed or otherwise.


    I've seen that done a few times. I just hope it doesn't get in.




    A simple Warehouse squirty bottle with dish-washing liquid (and warm water) in it ...and a soft cloth ... is cheaper .

    Some of that canned stuff can't be good for the paint. Your bike ... you choose.
    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.
