    Washing your cat.

    I'm sure there is a thread already somewhere. Wanting to know what everyone uses to clean their sleds, under hood and outer hood, seat and all that.

    I use Gunk degreaser. Spray it under the hood,let it sit 5min and wash it off. Use common sense on what things not to spray and get wet.

    I wipe outside with wet soft cloths. I wipe any grease/oil under hood with dry rags. It's kept clean, and isn't oily. I'd probably use a very little amount of carb or brake cleaner on a rag if I had to (careful not to overdo it where it damages engine paint). That way you don't have to get engine wet.

    ^ This stuff does not hurt your engine paint and leaves it smelling like a orange lol. It works great on engines that have been neglected for awhile. On the outside I use regular carwash,dry everything good and finish the hood with a coat of wax. I do not recommend a pressure washer.
