Re: kerosene

I've found kerosene to be the best for cleaning. WD40 is good when you need some lubrication and anti-corrosion protection as well as cleaning. Degreaser is good too. Depends on what you can get the most value out of. Buy bulk.

After I degrease the parts I usually wash my whole bike with CT-18 truckwash to get all the kerosene/degreaser off because I find they leave an oily residue.

Re: kerosene

The oily residue is good for the parts because the fumes burn off but your parts still need to have a nice protection on them if they arent being immediately put back into the bike.... and kerosene is awesome stuff it does great on chains without ruining o rings.....
