I came in from a ride today and spend a while cleaning my bike. We had been caught in the rain, and my whole drivetrain was badly gunked-up.
I used the citrus degreaser I usually use because I get such good results, but now I'm about to run out... So I was wondering... What's IN this stuff? It isn't orange juice because that would contain too much sugar; even lemon juice contains some natural sugars. Could it be lemon oil?
I'm thinking -- a concoction of water, lemon oil and dishwashing liquid might work pretty well as a degreaser/general purpose cleaner. Any comments? Any experience with lemon oil?
