Good one, but a "Vibrator" from an old recliner works good too. I have one attached to my parts cleaner.

But I guess we were ahead of out times back in the Seventies when we used PineSol to wash our bikes......

Holy cats, I see a run on Pine Sol. With advrider members clearing out store shelves, I'm running out to invest money in CLX - its going through the roof.

Come to think of it, I might still have an old orbital sander around here somewhere... I like this idea a lot!

Pine Sol does a good job of taking dirty motor oil stains out of concrete as well.

I've used Lemon Fresh Pledge (You just can't say it without the "fresh") and Easy-Off oven cleaner (cuts through tough grease and road grime!) for many years. Just got comfortable I guess and never figured PineSol.

Do you think Pine Sol could be thinned enough to be effective as a degreasing spray...like Simple Green, only safer??

You can buy that stuff by the gallon, possibly even 5 Gal.buckets at Janitorial Supply places.....much cheaper too!

The idea of using it in conjunction with ultrasonic cleaners got me to wondering - I was already planning to build an electrolysis rust remover in a plastic 5 gal bucket from a post I saw somewhere on here. And I have Pine Sol on the list of cleaning methods to use when the time comes.

Now I wonder how the two methods will combine. I still have a couple of bins loaded with scrap and junked Ducati pieces. Probably not in the next week or two, but I'll have to assemble the de-ruster and give it a test with Pine Sol instead of the usual sodium carbonate(washing soda) solution.

When I try it I'll dig up this thread and post the outcome.

If you use Pine Sol to clean your carbs, your motor will explode



Sheesh, might as well use WD-40 on your chain and cheap dino engine oil and give yourself the grenading motorcycle trifecta























Seriously though, thanks for passing on the tip!

I see a big green cloud of chlorine gas or VX or some other really noxious vapors coming from that experiment.

Pine-Sol Warning

We started using Pine-Sol around the house when we first bought it. It has worked great on lots of tough problems but I am now bald.
