I do the combo of simple green, denatured alcohol, and wd40 plus air. Hit with wd 40 again after. Every once in a while I pull the electronics, tank, and mill and break out the hose as well. I also have an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner my mom had before she passed that I use alot.

For quick cleaning in between heats, Simple Green, air, and Mumeisha cleaning clay for the stubborn bits.

Yes, If you read the label, It can be diluted A LOT.

I do a mix of 1/2 water 1/2 Simple green and add about a cup or so of the Methyl. Careful when adding the methyl as it will create a chemical reaction and get extremely hot with the water and simple green and formulate Fiberglass sized crystals which aide in the cleaning process. If you use too much methyl it will clog the pump on the bottle.

In the UK we dont have Simple Green (that I know of) but we do have Pledge, however, are you talking about the furniture polish, or am I thinking of the wrong thing?
