Pine-Sol

Anyone tried chain cleaning with Pine-Sol ? I've used it for carb cleaning which I know lots of people do and it works great without destroying the rubbers. So why not chains ? Only asking coz I'm in Mexico and finding it had to find proper chain cleaner. Could use kerosene but haven't seen that any where yet. I'm seeing Pine-Sol or Pinol as the equivalent is here every where.

I have never used it for chains but if you put it on a rag and wiped the external dirt down how bad could it be? A thorough lubing afterward and should be good to go.
I would not put it in the ultrasonic cleaner (I replaced the switch) because I would assume it would get behind the O rings and affect the grease inside each link.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.
