Only good for door hinges or getting crayon off walls. Never good near a bike. Never ever good for a tidy Retrobike. Last can I bought was in about 2009 sill about 2/3 full :lol:

I know it eats grease so not great for some parts of the bike, but I find it useful it for cleaning things up or spraying in things like rapidfire shifters after the bike has been subject to a wash, to repel any water and keep the pawls free from dirt.

Surely it makes the wall paper go yellow and leaves a wet mark like a Tom cat has been round and had a good squirt

GT85 would have the same effect but it smells a lot nicer.... we’ll most things smell better than randy Tom cats look love juice
