you must be in bfe cause they sell simple green everywhere around here. i have tried almost all cleaners and the only thing that comes close to simple green is diluted dish soap in a spray bottle, but just not close enough.

You can go to Dollar Tree and buy their organic cleaner also, or the 99 cents only stores. They work just as good and don't hurt anything just don't spray it right into your bearings and make sure you shoot the bearings with WD-40 or kalgard 30/30 after you dry it. I've been using cheap alternatives for cleaners for a year now and have the same success as I did with Simple Green for allot less money.

They're $1 at the dollar store. Spray it on a nitro/dirt caked body, wait 10 seconds and it all rinses off clean, no scrubbing at all. Great for body prep and all kinds of stuff. It somehow makes old tape and dusty decal edges tacky again.
Jaz240 and I are basically talking about the same stuff. The awesome orange is a wicked degreaser.
The greenworks is just as good for cleaning I have used it a few times when I ran out of simple green. It doesn't do the job of softening up tires a little bit when cleaned like simple green does however. You do gota let the greenworks sit for just a tad longer to get it to work as well though.
Ok here it goes. I am sorta neurotic when it comes to simple green. Some guy many months ago posted that simple green had some agents that could alter plastic.
I used simple green for quite awhile. I ran out and never bought it again and have been using Kal Guard degreaser. Now the neurotic part. I have broken far less plastics now that I have not used it in quite some time.
I know it sounds crazy and there is probably nothing wrong with simple green but I am not going to find out. I know many people who use it and love it. In fact it does a really good clean job.

BE CAREFULL with purple power, you better dilute it,this chit takes paint off if you use it straight!!!
This stuff is bad. I've been using it for atleast 10 years now. It was perfect for my dirtbikes, kept them looking new. I didn't even have to put a rag on them, just spray it down with purple power and rinse off with water and I was done.
I tried using it full strength on a RC car years ago and it stripped all of the anodizing right off. I couldn't believe it. I now dilute it heavily so it's about the same strength as straight simple green.
Thanks to my sponsors and friends
