#1 Screwfix degreaser

Post by tim wood » Sat Feb 03, 2018 2:35 pm

The rear cage on my car is caked with grease and muck an unbelievable amount of greasy crud.
It’s now dropped out and in bits on the garage floor.
Thought I would try the degreaser from screwfix as I had read good reports. Picked up 5 litre for under a tenner and dropped some bits in a 50/50 mix of water and this stuff. Amazing, cleans off all of the muck and much safer than using spirit based products.

I used some neat on some parts and again good results.

Worthwhile trying if like me you are up to your elbows in the mucky stuff. Cheap too !

Yes, it works great.

I also use the Clarke parts washer detergent with good results.
