    If you tell you Husqvarna you will put it in the shop with the big mean Stihls they will piss themself clean!

    Baby shampoo is the best cleaner for chainsaws.

    That sounds a lot easier! I've been using a magnesium safe degreaser recently, strip parts and dump them in a bucket of it for a few hours. Rinse off and blast with the air hose

    Sounds like me cleaning pontoons that sat in the lake since 2003. I tried every acid out there. Finally got them somewhat clean after using three different acids to eat the calcium off!
