I should also mention that for large jobs, heavy grease, etc, Brakleen can
be expensive.... first, I soak it in ordinary kerosene, then brush the
grease off. I NEVER use gasoline... kerosene is still flammable, but I use
it all the time in my parts washer, I'm just careful. I wear rubber gloves,
of course. After the kerosene has it pretty clean, I finish up with the
Brakleen and alchohol. Lots of old car hobbyists I know do pretty much the
same. Good luck, Jerry K3BZ
