- could you clean your chain with…
On its birthday, or once the rag is too soiled to remove any more crud, I dump my chain in a bowl of hot water with a dash of Persil in.Posted 4 years ago
Scrub it round with a brush stolen from the kitchen. Take it out, blast it with gt85, wipe off after 5 mins , oil it and stick it back on the bike.ransosSubscriber
No. You need a surfactant or a solvent to remove the accumulated dried oil or wax.
You don’t – need to remove it, that is.Posted 4 years agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
Depends if you’re trying to clean the chain or make it look clean. An old rag can’t properly clean the chain, all you’re doing is taking the junk off the faceplates, you’re not doing anything with the rollers where the wear takes place. It’s still debatable whether you should actually degrease the rollers but assuming you are then a chain bath or take it off and shake it in a jam jar (both using solvent), coke would work eventually I guess but slower than a decent degreaserPosted 4 years ago
