That's great stuff in the right places, i.e., where you want to remove oil or grease and leave no residue or wetness. I use it on my chain and cassette when I want them looking showroom-fresh before re-waxing.Hmm... I've been using "brake cleaner" for a while now.
That stuff is ok but not very eco freindly and I found odinary washing detergent does the same thing, both however it will remove a lot of the surface gunk but not the gunk in the groves on the breaking surface.Hmm... I've been using "brake cleaner" for a while now. .
That's because we both went to the same school....the old school.I've always used the eraser method - and then for really nasty rims, an SOS 'Scotchbrite' pad - which also polished out some of the little dings and scratches.
ScotchBrite pads are good but you need to becareful of the tire wall as they can easily damage them, especailly if you are using spun or cotton wall tires. Also the eraser gets in all the little spaces.I've previously used ScotchBrite pads or similar for cleaning my rims. Gonna try James' suggestion once I've been to the stationery store. A clean rim is a happy rim.
