Or some honey.... seriously, it works. Both are temporary, but they will shut that damned belt up for a while.

Killer and Subdude.......I suggest you both look at the way other people post here, and what topics are posted. Both of you need to watch your step. We don't tolerate car abuse here. This is an automotive forum.

If you continue in your manner of posting, alot of members are going to jump your ****.

Back on topic, Ajax is an abrasive. That'* the stupidest thing you can put on a belt. Use belt dressing.

Should belts be cleaned just for the heck of it?

I've never heard of belts being cleaned, no.

The soap and honey tricks are home made remedies for squeaking belts. That'* all they fix, tho, is the squeak, and only for about a day. TThey don't fix the problem, and should not be used as a substitute for finding the real problem.

Call me silly but when my belts start squeeling that to me means they are probably getting close to needing a change. Spraying dressing on a belt is like putting muffler tape on a muffler....CHANGE IT!!!!!
