Make sure it is Basin Tub and Tile Cleaner. The stuff that foams up. Regular Lysol will prob work a little due to the alcohol in it, but not what i was talking about.

Use non-chlorinated brake cleaner its safe with graphite and carbon and won't damage any electrical components, you could also use lighter fluid.

the regular brake cleaner has ill effects on plastic and will usually ruin it just ask my 300.00 snapon battery charger that was sitting by the trash can in the shop. some over spray mist got on the lens that covers the gauge while I was spraying of a couple brake drums and fogged it over. it etched the plastic lens so you can't read it and snapon wants 50.00 for a new gauge so get the non chlorinated or use lysol.

Was searching for this thread. I have a compressor and airbrush. Can I use alcohol to clean motors? I heard mixing water and denatured alcohol is ok. Wont rust be a problem? Lysol is just as expensive as motor spray here.

Break/Rotor cleaner is a good alternative when cleaning your motor and they are less expensive and works well. The only down side is they have a strong odor.

Go to your local O'Reilly's and get some 3M High power brake cleaner. It is part # 08880. I've been using this for a couple of months, and I love it. I can purchase a 12 can case for under $35!

3M products are way expensive here. Break cleaners here have acetone and really stinks.
