    Anyone Use "Greased Lightning" Cleaner?

    I was in Lowe's today and beside the Simple Green is this product called Greased Lightning.
    Is this stuff any good?
    I go thru Simple Green on EVERYTHING like it's going out of style.
    Can this stuff also be used as an all purpose cleaner/degreaser such as Simple Green?
    Is it safe to use on interiors,plastics,etc?

    Works ok, I use simple green as a degresser, I guess it depends on what your cleaning. I like all the bio kleen products for cleaning my boat. There stuff works very well.

    I use it... works great!!

    I keep a bottle of it in my truck. When I'm down working on the boat and get my hands greasy/oily, it works great as a hand cleaner.

    It is really great stuff. The plant where they make it is in Liberty, SC, about 20 minutes from me. It is very popular down here and I use it a lot to clean tough stuff. They even have a race car, I see them hauling it in an enclosed trailer all the time. It started off as a really small company that they started in the back of a grocery store.

    don't get it mixed up with the other bottles you keep in there.

    Too Strong For General Cleaning

    Be VERY careful with the stuff. I literally through it away after someone ( trying to help) used it on some of my anodized pieces and it cut the finish ! Simple Green for me cause you can't get in trouble.

    If you want something very strong , I have found that the Castrol Super clean works the best on tough jobs !

    Hey Randall they are about 20-30 minutes from me also.

    I use it all the time on clean tough stuff like inside fenders of the truck. But like everyone said don't use it on sensitive things.
