WHATS THE BEST DEGREASER ON THE MARKET ?

Can i have some imputs on these Question "PLEASE" ?
I purchased 5 liters of diesel & it was sorta ok , so i went & got 2.5 liters of this koala "crap" stuff from a cheapo shop , i think my piss would have moved more , so i bought some decent oven cleaner & that moved another layer of crap ! the car is 32 yrs old & i think it never ever got cleaned underneath , no wonder it has such good floor pans , rust couldnt penatrate the grime ! i used to use a degreaser called "kenco" dont know if thats the correct spelling but it use to remove everything including a layer of paint ! is this stuff still around? having a bitch of a time finding a store that sells it ? Is there something i can get thats easy to find that actually works ?

Kenco Shift-it is still available, I actually bought 5 liters for $10 at supercheap auto just a few weeks ago.

It is good stuff, and when left to soak, will remove anything, kill the grass under the car, and stain like hell if not removed properly. Ive tried heaps of degreasers, and its still the best.

I haven't tried the proprietry stuff - I just mix detergent and kero, brush it on, leave it a bit and hose it off. Seems to work OK. Anything stubborn, I'd use a brush (nylon, not metal), on the second try before I hosed it.

Those $2 cans from supercheap are pretty good, but from memry are a distillate base.... get yourself one of those $70 pressure cleaners, I bought one, got a 2 year warranty and MATE they are AWESOME...

I use the $2 Aussie Export brand ones from Supercheap. Not the greatest, but they do the job fairly well. They also double as the worlds best lawn killer. I remember a mate of mine wrote a whole paragraph of insults, on the front lawn of someone who had wronged him, some time back. Took a few days to do its thing but it burned deep into the ground and stayed there for at least a month!

Yeah, Kenco will take off even the most stubbon birds knickers. I find the stuff handy to use from the spray on the compressor.

Supercheap sell it

Hooroo

I think Kenco is a great degreaser for the price......
but be carefull when cleaning alloy, it takes off the shine and marks it badly if not rinsed off very quickly.

I bought a bottle of Lightning TUFF Cleaner/Degreaser at the Farmworld Show at Lardner Park, Warragul a few weekends back and couldn't believe how well it worked on my greasy old suspension bits and pieces and various other dirty rusty old metal parts I cleaned with it. I checked the Lightning website for more info and it comes in either a 4 litre concentrate which can be watered down to a spray & wipe dilution ratio or you can use it as a straight concentrate but I wouldn't as it would be nuclear strength. The 4 litres makes about 80 litres at the spray & wipe ratio they sell in the 500ml spray pack. It is made using citrus oils & eucalyptus and won't kill your garden as it is biodegradeable aswell so no more dead dolphins!! Guys just remember that every can of that petrochemical solvent type degreaser that goes down the drain eventually ends up in the sea - and the fish we eat. I'll be using this Lightning TUFF from now on as it is much safer all round and in my opinion worked better anyway. I have since found out that it was BJ Bearings who was selling it but Repco, Bursons, Supercheap all seem to have it or can get it in for you. Another product I bought that Lightning make is the Eucalyptus Laundry Powder. They call it Euca and I bought 10kgs for $60 but as it is suitable for front loader washing machines I will get 500+ washes as it is a concentrate with no fillers in it, which end up in your clothes & it is especially good on greasy overalls but soft enough for wool. Hope this is of interest as I am very happy with both of these products.

Lol.
Is this spam ?

It certainly is a good 'add' for the product..

Sad thing but true "If it dont kill dolphins, it wont kill grease".
I've wasted oodles of coins on junk degreaser :-(

I use oven cleaner. Best stuff around, and it's cheap.

Caustic sh!t iirc but been a few years since i cleaned an oven, lol.
Will go try it next job, Ta :-)

I agree that the LIGHTNING TUFF DEGREASER is the sh1t!!! I've tried them all and just wish I'd discovered it long ago. I use it for everything around home - washed the weatherboards down & picket fence before repainting it, cleaned 50 year old blackened filthy curdy looking paving in inner city backyard

Dead Dolphins found washed up on Rosebud beach.

Possible cause of DEATH,
oven cleaner with traces of engine oil !!!!
