Bike Cleaning Products in Germany

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 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.
