Degreaser

What do you all recommend for degreasing.

I'm looking for a degreaser for oil and road crud to remove from a bike chain.

Would g101 work?

The dedicated bike chain degreasers are wayyyyy overpriced.

Any cheap household APC for a £1 will do the job. Spray on, leave to dwell, agitate with a brush and rinse off.

I always use parafin on my bike chains. Used to buy muc off chain cleaner but parafin is a lot cheaper and does a better job.

Elbow grease from the £1 shop or b&m bargains was really good when I used it on a customer's bike chain

Paraffin if the chain is off, or WD40 if chain is on the bike (is what I usually use).

May be overkill if you mean bicycle but SDOC100 Chain cleaner is hands down the most effective chain cleaner ive found/used in the last 20 years of motorcycle ownership.

Even winter crud and build up is removed with ease - spray on, leave a few mins, hose off. You can agitate with a tooth brush if you want.
