Default Degreasing tools

so who knows of a good medium to remove grease (and degreaser)? Ive used toothbrushes and paintbrushes, but after a little bit of use the degreaser starts to weaken the bristles and eventually just melt the brushes. I dont want to use anything metal if i dont have to, so is there any other way? Ive got a lot of block/tranny crap left to clean up and i dont want to change my cleaning tool every 4 minutes because its melted down to a stump...

what are you using for a degreaser that is melting plastic?
Ever try simple green?

Simple green or my favorite is Castrol Super Clean (purple power). I've used the Castrol even to get grease out of a pair of "good" jeans after an emergency repair. If I'm degreasing parts off vehicle, Kerosene works as well to cut the gunk and then I follow up with the before mentioned degreaser to take care of the residue.

Cellulose thinners is the business.

Something that I've discovered that will take auto grease and oil off of your hands, tools, cloth - you name it, is baby wipes. Its actually scary how well they take grease off. If your hands are black to the wrists with axle grease it literally take 2 wipes and a little rubbing to get them 'touch your wife clean'.

I have tried a medium..........

But they kept banging on about messages from the spirit world.............

Gotta say it pissed me off a bit, I just wanted a nice clean wrench!

Also I tried the baby wipe thing, yep it works, but with a wife like mine it takes a hell of a lot of explaining when your hands smell of baby oil........

"Oh yeah, and what tool have you been wiping !"
