    Question General purpose contact cleaner recommendations?

    I use contact cleaner or brake cleaner regularly. To cut costs I would prefer to buy bulk say a 5 litre container of contact cleaner and use a pump type 1 litre spray bottle. Would someone be able to recommend a brand of contact cleaner or similar solvent for general purpose usage?
    Thanks,
    Tom

    Everywhere Iíve worked in the last 10yrs has supplied us with CRC CO Contact cleaner. It works, although I find it flashes off a bit quick for heavy degreaser jobs but thatís not really what itís designed for either. Comes in aerosol, 20l or 200l drums. No idea of price as I have nothing to do with procurement.

    For general purpose cleaner use at home I use Simple Green, itís good for everything from degreasing machines and engines to washing the kitchen floor, I get it in 5l from bunwahs.

    Hi Guys,

    I just use petrol for oil & grease, and plain water and washing up liquid afterwards.

    Hi Eskimo,

    I would clear your browser cache and run an AV check on your machine.

    There seems to be a number of browser nasties around at the moment !

    FWIW I regularly get Email advertising supposedly from forum members, not just this forum but members of others that I frequent.
