Default How do you guys clean your gear diffs?

I just took apart 1/8th scale diffs for the first time for a cleaning and rebuild.

Im using simple green for cleaning but Im sure there is something better out there.

It's amazing how many people don't read the stickied post or know how to use the search function.
