Not sure if the residue will do you any favours and it won't be the cheapest way to do it.

I'm sure vinegar can be used as well.

I would be interested to find out what works best as I'm considering setting up a powdercoating facility at the workshop and I'll need prep bays.

White vinegar works on an loads of stuff and is really cheap.

Have they not taken the stuff out of coke that used to eat away at everything?

At least you won't be tempted to drink it if you buy Rola Cola.

Paraffin, petrol, or diesel are all very good degreasers. Paraffin the least smelly and cheapest!
