So I just moved from the US to Germany and I need to find a German equivalent to Simple Green for cleaning my bike. Yes, I know I could just pop into the LBS (or whatever the German acronym would be), but I figured I'd just ask all of you if you knew of a comparable product.
So. Anyone know of a German "Simple Green"?
Thanks in advance.

Germans are pretty environmentally conscious.
Perhaps stores are not allowed to sell a product with 2-Butoxyethanol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2-butoxyethanol) in it.
You may have to go back to good old dish soap and water.

Scrub greasy components with Kero, rinse. Scrub now not so greasy components with spray on kitchen/bathroom cleaner, rinse. Hand wash rest of bike with car wash/dishwashing liquid and sponge, rinse and dry and relube chain.
