Default Alternative To Kal-Gard Degreaser?

At this time I unable to get Kal Gard products locally anymore.

My 3 favorite products are De greaser, 30/30 and Prep N Shine.

I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with other products such as these that you can get a moto shop or a local hardware store.

Recently I had to go back to the old method of Simple Green (cleaning) WD-40 (bearings) Orange Pledge (shine + dust repellent). It just is not the same and does not do half as good of a job.

Any suggestion for any one of the mentioned products.

Thanks

I came from the SC1 to Kalguard. The SC1 makes your car look all shiny, but seemed to be a dust magnet when you roll it out on dirt. Ill never go back to SC1. I think Im done with Kalgaurd to for the $

Why?

An air compressor gets all the water off..

and even if it didnt..there's really nothing on the car that will rust. (losi anyways)

Just re oil the bearings and be done
