    Powdered Tide laundry detergent. Works great and is cheap, just mix a scoop full in a 5 gallon bucket.

    I use either acetone or laquer thinner. Any mineral spirit that evaporates clean will do.

    Cleaning metal

    I just purchased some 2" square 1/8" tubing and after picking it up, my hands were black. I am curious what some of you use to clean dirty steel before welding or grinding?
