Always used brake or carb cleaner and Seafoam Deep Creep in the spray can works well also.

break cleaner can cause plastics to become brittle.

have you tried using simple shampoo?

shampoo is a kind of degreaser(not very potent)

but i use it to wash my hands after working on my real car and it cleans away the grease pretty good.

Gravity.

I just dump out my diff fluid and wipe off my gears. I don't care about the little bit of leftover old fluid. It isn't going to hurt anything.

I dump mine in a bucket of paint thinner. Within seconds everything looks like new....

I already have to many cans of all sorts of products. I normally use bearing blaster or nitro cleaner, but will try WD40. There's always some in the house.
