Here is what I did..first time... last Sunday. And I had a filthy,
never before cleaned, engine & dirty bay.

1) Go to grocery store,
buy a product called "Greased Lightning"


Greased Lightning® BLAST™ High Performance Cleaner and Degreaser

Proven more effective than other leading brands on tough, grease-stained areas, our convenient spray on, hose off cleaner makes grease and grime disappear from your most difficult cleaning surfaces. Greased Lightning High Performance works great on tires, motors and tools, and can be used as a laundry pre-treat for dirty uniforms, clothes and towels.


Um...... No.
I used the original.....
First saw it in action, when workers were cleaning the Roasting oven at the local
Stop & Shop. They sprayed it on the smokey and greasy tile walls, and the thick crud from weeks and weeks of roasting chickens, just slid down in rivulets!
I thought ... "Hmmmm self, gotta try that on a dirty engine...."

This one..


Now they've got it for cars too ?? ?? eh?
