I have been using Starter Fluid Spray (diethyl ether) from walmart.

The can is $2, and I can get my chain very clean with just 1/3 a can.

Some tell me it's not oring safe, but it's not in contact very long and works so great..just blasts the dirt off and dries quick.

DO NOT USE AROUND FIRE or KABOOM

Really?
OK, OK - if thats ok-
You put these solvents in a plastic container that youre sure didnt degrade when you added them AND the o-rings into?
I know Im a few years behind on this.. but really? What kind of scientist are you?

Do you ask for an MSDS before accepting your Quarter Pounder?

It's a viloation of Harris County Law to use starter fluid like that. It's OK in Waller though.

I just use a stiff brissle brush to knock the crud off then relube with some type of silicone lube.
