    Have used this for years on bikes and anything else that needs degreasing. I try to avoid getting it into bearings, but really it's impossible when cleaning a cassette on the bike.

    Pros
    Inexpensive
    safe for metals and plastics and skin
    removes tough grease
    environmentally friendly

    Cons
    Degreases bearings

    I like to use this once a year to wash my bikes. It really gets the crud off and isn't to harsh.

    Pros
    Cheap
    Cuts Grease

    This is great stuff if you are careful with it. You can cut it with water and it's pretty effective, but most people use it straight, which is pretty strong. Just be careful as it doesn't drip down into frame bearings, bottom brackets, etc....any place where you have bearings as this stuff will get in and dissolve the grease in those bearings.
    It's great for soaking stuff. I restore old Stingrays and when I get everything apart, I spray everything and let them soak, then go for the brass wool scrubbing before putting back together. Love it.

    Pros
    Works on a number of things.
    Really cleans/cuts grease well
    Cheap

    Cons
    Be careful as it will get into bearings and dissolve the bearing grease.

    I use this stuff everywhere! Its great for soaking a chain or cleaning sap and scum off your bike. It will strip a bearing of its grease so be aware. One concentrated bottle lasts years. Good stuff!

    Pros
    use it everywhere!
    great value

    Cons
    none

    buy it in the Gallon jug, save a lot of money and work on learning what percent water to green works the best for your application

    Pros
    AWESOME! this stuff works in so many ways, on clothing, gear, bikes, cars, concrete, siding I could go on but since this is a bike MTB review...

    Cons
    um, none!

    I'm an impatient person, so I don't like waiting for it to soak in... Works great when I give it time. Just remove your chain and soak it overnight in a tub of this, and it will be shiny and clean in the morning.

    Pros
    Not harsh on skin
    Effective cleaner

    Cons
    Takes a little time to work
