Gun Scrubber in the aerosol can, can't remember who makes it and I don't feel like going and looking at the can
spray some on and rub with a paper towel. takes that thick nasty grease off in no time. then spray on some remington aerosol gun oil and it finishes off any residue and leaves a light coating of protection
did my yugo mauser's bayonet sheath and bayonet the other week, and a few M1 carbine mags tonight that were new in some sort of wax/grease paper

I normally use BrakeCleaner, does this work better/worse/about the same

That stuff costs like $6 a can.
Go to the 99 cent store and buy some brake cleaner.

It is better than brake cleaner by far but it is much more expensive.

Have to be careful with it on wood and paint.

I've never tried brake cleaner so I can't compare them

I've used both. No difference. Well, that's not true. There's a $5 difference.

Mineral spirits work pretty well too. The fumes from brake cleaner prolly give ya drain bamage. Use in a "well ventilated area".

I clean mine outside infront of the shed. It could be worse, you could just use ether.

I use good old kerosene in my parts washer, cheap, and cuts right through the grease.

I used to clean that way, now I use boiling hot water on the metal parts. Just washes away.

Used in addition to brake cleaner is my method of choice.
