I do not know how true this is. I have heard and read that dish detergent is not a good option for bikes or cars. It has acid in it that can affect the finish of the metal. I know it is really good on greasy, oily things and that is what bird/waterfowl rescuers use on animals that have been coated in petroleum products. I do sometimes use simple green as the solution to clean park parts. I also have a cleaner called LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner. It works really well as a solution to soak things in overnight, no acid. As for the detergent, that is the individuals choice.
