I've got quite a few large messy/greasy/gunky components to clean up.

I usually use GUNK, but find it doesn't always clean things up that well and leaves a horrible residue, particularly on plastic items.

One of the items I want to degrease is an engine, which I want to repaint.


So what do you all use or recommend?

Quite impressed with one of the Muck Off range for cleaning an engine, but if you're talking serious build up, then smelly gunk is your stuff.
The good thing about Muck Off is it's water based and doesn't smell.
I'd try a first go with that to remove the bulk of grime etc.

Get the thickest of the crap off using baby wipes and then clean up the metal surface afterwards with parrafin etc

I use them all the time for the mucky stuff.

I believe you can't dispose of paraffin or petrol down the drain. You should take it in a container to your local waste disposal depot.

Autoglym degreaser is very good and safe to use on the drive. Not the cheapest but very effective and not unpleasant to use. It's aerosol so you can get it into tight spots.
