Is engine degreaser fucking useless? I got some and it barely got anything off compared to brake cleaner.

Is engine degreaser fucking useless? I got some and it barely got anything off compared to brake cleaner. Mayne not something you all have a strong opinion about but I dont see the point of this.

    That stuff is basically normal soap.

    This is the stuff you want

      >brake cleaner
      unless it's like the block itself, I wouldn't spray that stuff anywhere near my engine with all the plastics, painted surfaces, and connectors. I got some on my screwdriver while I was cleaning intake valves the other day and it literally melted the handle.

    it's all just varying concentrations of all purpose cleaners. engine degreaser usually just means a higher concentration of soap to water compared to, say, an interior cleaner

      IIRC isn't it mainly just sodium laureth sulphate?

        that's just an agent for foaming/suds, completely unrelated to cleaning

          It's literally the actual soap chemical in most soaps. Not just car soaps, ALL soaps. It most definitely does clean.

    Gotta use a warm water pressure washer with that shit. Brake cleaner dissolves plastic, rubber and your brains so you dont want to use that very much. Oddly enough, soibean oil spray also dissolves grease, but careful cause animals might want to taste the residue of that shit

      Buy the gallon jugs and a chemical spray bottle instead.
      A steam cleaner also makes quick work after degreasing.

      The new aircraft stripper is shit now cuz EPA rules.

    Engine dirt is like smegma. It's actually healthy. Just leave it alone.

    My rule of thumb for cleaning "hidden" areas:
    >if it doesn't come off with a damp rag then it's not meant to come off

        Use a strong detergent like Simple Green or
        VOCs evaporate too quickly to cut through thick grease, so a soap/detergent will work the best. Spray some on the grime, let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse with water. Works really well for brake dust too.

    Seriously soibean oil spray is top quality degreaser. It just mixes with the congealed grease and then you have low viscosity oil that can be blasted away with pressure or wiped away with a rag. Isopropyl alcohol Also works on some types of grease.

    I just use varying concentrations of sulphuric acid for every cleaning problem. Just make your own
    >1 large glass jar
    >1 12v power source like an old charger
    >1 copper rod
    >1 lead rod(or whatever)
    >.5kg of copper sulphate from any pool store(it kills algae too)
    >make a saturated solution of copper sulphate distilled water
    >put solution into glass jar
    >hook positive to lead side
    >neg to copper side
    Fun with electrolysis begins!
    Let sit till copper rod is covered with blobs of copper(from the copper sulphate).
    Now you have ~80% concentrated sulphuric acid!
    Boil down to remove any water left & increase acid concentration.
    Store in plastic or glass container.
    Try not to spill on a trannys face as you clean your neighborhood.
