Kind of, but better because, well, because it's American.

Dawn is pretty intense stuff. It gives me a wicked rash on my hands. Too many years of washing them in Safety Kleen, which despite its name is not all that safe to get on your hands.

The new Safety Kleen is safe... it just doesn't work.

Back in the day, when it was trichlorethylene, then trichloroethene, or even the later Chlorothane NU, you could dip a wheel bearing, then lay it in the palm of your hand and blow the crap out on it with 90 lbs of air.
Should kind of watch out for little cuts though, they let the grease get under your skin instead of just the triclor. But hell, since it was being absorbed through your fingernails 50 time faster than through your skin, it doesn't make much difference, does it.

If I get even a few drops of mineral spirits or turps on my hands at this point my entire arm goes pins and needles for about half an hour.

Cleaned many a freewheel that way.

Apparently Dawn dishsoap is pretty much the same thing as Fairy Liquid over here. Both made by Proctor and Gamble.

Funnily enough I have on occasion used Fairy to handwash small items of clothing when I've not had time to go to the laundrette.

Been a while since I did though. Gonna give it a go and see how I get on.

Hey, I think there's a game/reality show in there. With The Rolling Stones.

Mick? Keith? Charlie? Ron? Who's in the dark this week?
