    Cleen Green on a good day at about R60/2l from Pick 'n Pay, but careful where you shop it can easily cost more.....
    I reckon it's one step harsher than prepsol so may streak polished aluminium a bit...also flushes away with water

    Paraffin mixed with soap should clean just about anything.

    I choose to use bio degradable and lawn friendly cleaners.
    That excludes solvent based products.
    Paraffin, petrol and diesel will surely kill your lawn.

    I always thought Cleen Green was near useless, I get better results with Prepsol.

    Is the Shield degreaser in the link below the one you are referring to?

    Makro has 5L for R120, that's pretty decent

    Agree with Henk and their Engine Degreaser works a treat as well, at around R70-00/5lt and still can be diluted 50/50 with water.

    Do yourself a favour and get (B)lixem soap/degreaser from your local soap agent or I see at Autozone as well. Very good. This stupid swear catcher on the forum don't even allow a brand name here,
    so remove the brackets.

Much better than the famous red one in my opinion. It also dies not leave a white residue like some cleaners do This will be my go to cleaner from now on.

    try mixing paraffin / sunlight liquid / water .

    good degreaser and leaves a light film of paraffin as rust inhibitor.

    You can tell Adrian that if he can't bear to give a price out in public for a litre of general purpose cleaner I ain't interested.

    I have no idea why some businesses do that, make customers jump through hoops just to get a price.... phone us for a special surprise price! And get a free 15min talk about how amazing our product is. No thanks.

    I also used Prepsol for many years. I found SDR (https://www.revet.co.za/product-deta...A-EA84C19BC840) a while back, and must say it works very well…

    I did not give price cause it is not my business. I just gave the details. Why are you upset about it. If you want to get a price call. If not leave it. It was my choice not to give prices and not his.

    No need to be an ass about it if you do not have all the facts.

    If you post the price once everyone can benefit, including the guy that owns the business because then people might buy the stuff.
