Default Parts Cleaner liquid what do you use ???

Hi folks, Question for you Newell Owners out there with parts cleaners...what do you recommend to put in them?
I keep hearing folks say that the stuff you purchase and add water does not clean well at all.

Someone said to get Varsol and add a quart of transmission fluid to it and add a little grease so your hands dry out.

Please help!

Thanks a ton!

Costco sells a product called Oil Eater-which is a water based cleaner. It is the best degreaser I've ever used! Can use it for washing car diluted, cleaning clothes, I use it to clean the carpet, and it smells nice. My wife is ever amazed at how well it gets the grease out of my clothes.

Good Luck,

K1 Kerosine also works. Can be mixed with mineral sprits ( about the same consistency ).

I also bought a 5 gallon can of parts cleaner at Tractor Supply. I think at the time is was less than $50 Kero works better though. Odorless unlike using diesel.

You can go to your local auto supplier and buy Stodard solvent, that is what is used in most professional cleaners tanks.
