"Bean Clean" Chain cleaner

I'm interested in purchasing this product for cleaning M/C chains, has anyone tried it? Success? I've been trying to contact the company although without success over the last week. Are they in business presently?
Thanks,

Motoretro

So-called chain cleaners usually use Naphtha-type
solvents as the active ingredient. Coleman fuel is Naphtha.

A better, cheaper solution is a small pump-up sprayer
as used for garden stuff - filled w/kerosene.

I've never used that prticular product, but it is a Soy based degreaser. I love soy based degreasers. They work well (you do need some mechanical agitation for them to work though), don't smell up the shop in the winter, and can be reused just like any petrolium based dgreaser (just let the crud settle out and draw clean degreaser off of the top). You should be able to find the same product in a different brand locally (at WalMart or a farm store).

My concern is getting something Soy based which works well w/ o-ring chains. I'll do some more searching.

I'm not having any luck finding any other Soy Bean based cleaner for chains with O-rings. I'm thinking about using "Simple Green" & shop towel to just wipe off the worse grunge before applying new lube. I figured as long as I don't let it sit too long afterwards to avoid flash rusting before applying new lube I would be OK.....Thoughts?

I would say that the practicality of any cleaner depends on the type of O-ring lube you use (moly-based or wax-based).

Most dedicated products don't work any better than kerosene:

After (4) E-mails and a phone call, all unanswered, I gave up. Would love to try their products although tough to do so without a return contact.

Please do update this when you receive what you ordered, I am interested but more than a little leery of ordering from someplace that will not communicate....

Came via UPS yesterday. Now you have to wait until I clean my chain again. That might take a little time.....

Did you order directly through their website without speaking to someone via the phone? Happy with packing and delivery time? Thanks for the follow-up.
