Re: Simple Green

I use it on both bikes, and it works awesome, especially on the TLR that has those horrible white rims. I also use in on the chains, with a tooth brush.

Edit:
Oh yeah, I also use it to clean the bug snot off the fairings and lights.

Bikes and Golf, the rest is just details.

Re: Simple Green

I use it to wash the engine once in a while. It won't hurt your rims, but I've found the best thing to clean junk off of rims is the Honda Spray Cleaner & Polish.

Re: Simple Green

I use it to clean under the hood of my truck. It's basically a degreaser, works well. I'd recommend using the Honda polish on your rims, it works really really well.

Re: Simple Green

If you're going to use Simple green on fairings I'd definitely recommend diluting it. Even then it'll strip the wax.. I use it on the engine, swingarm, wheels etc and it works well.

Re: Simple Green

Simple Green

I use it to clean my entire house. I buy the economy size and dilute it in a spray bottle. I also use the economy size disposable shop towels(blue ones) to clean my house.

Oh yeah I do also use it on my bikes and cars to clean the grime.

Re: Simple Green

Simple green works as advertised. I find it to be kinda hard on rubber, so I keep it away if possible.

Re: Simple Green

FYI, if you have pine pitch on something....simple green will take it off slick as sheeeeeeit. Its great stuff! Pine pitch tends to be an issue on many cars in the area.

Team Honda - well sorta...

I've gotten 20K + on my last 2 chains, so I don't know if I really agree with that.

Re: Simple Green

keep it away from aluminum at least at full strength...it WILL etch into it if it is left on for any amount of time.

Re: Simple Green

The guy that "USED TO" come out and clean my trailer sprayed Simple Green on it and then answered his cellphone and talked for about 5 minutes. When he went to power rinse it off, it had permanently damaged the colored aluminum panels. He paid to have it rubbed out, all to no avail. I had to have it repainted at over 2K just because this a$$clown didn't know what he was doing . . .

and your girlfriend too.

Oh, I tried for about 16 months, but he really didn't have the resources to back up his "errors" and he didn't carry any liability insurance. My mistake really, as I was trying to help the guy get started in his new power washing business (a friend of an ex-employee) and I broke rule number 2: "Never do business with a friend or friend of a friend . . .".

and your girlfriend too.
