Years ago I used simple green to clean centerline wheels on my truck. It messed up the finish and looked like little spyder webs all over........

While I'm a fan of simple green, I do have to say that S100 is good stuff!!!

this from the Simple Green web site.

Aluminum - Is it safe to use Simple Green® on aluminum?
When used with caution and according to the instructions, Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner has been safely and successfully used to clean aluminum. Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner, Crystal Simple Green® Cleaner/Degreaser, Simple Green Pressure Washer Concentrates, and Pro Series™ Simple Green® Automotive Cleaner have been used on aircraft, automotive, industrial and consumer aluminum items for over 20 years.

However, caution and common sense must be used: aluminum is a soft metal that easily corrodes with unprotected exposure to water.

The aqueous-base and alkalinity of Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner can accelerate the corrosion process. Therefore, contact times for unprotected or unpainted aluminum surfaces should be kept as brief as the job will allow - never for more than 10 minutes. Large cleaning jobs should be conducted in smaller-area stages to achieve lower contact time. Rinsing after cleaning should always be extremely thorough - paying special attention to flush out cracks and crevices to remove all Simple Green® product residues. Unfinished, uncoated or unpainted aluminum cleaned with Simple Green products should receive some sort of protectant after cleaning to prevent oxidation.

Oh yeah, it works great on plastics too. If you need your plastics cleaned off your bike, just use brake cleaner and let it sit for a while. You'll never have to worry about those plastics being dirty again. Also make sure you are using a chlorinated brake cleaner, and smoking a cigarette while you are doing it to look cool, because health and safety is for . Cleaning a bike is serious manly man business.





Or don't, see if I care!

Another vote for S100. Great stuff! Used it for the first time last weekend and I'm amazed how much it brightened up my frame and wheels.

For heavy grease the zep orange cleaner they sell at home depot is pretty awesome but it is a "scrub" type cleaner, not a spray, wait, clean off like S100.
