Nikasil, Im not sure. I found out today it removes paint....I tried PS on an old side case and it bubbled the paint up. That was a mix of PS/water, 40/60.

Definitely going to pick some of this up strictly for those carb cleans.

What are some other things it's good for? I'm trying to think.

What makes it clean it so well? Is it petroleum based like carb clean, lacquer thinner, mineral spirits, etc.? Like the stuff I use to get the oil outta my filter.

great stuff. This lady walks into the hardware store with two things she couldn't leave without and a list of miscellaneous things to shop for. First was to get a gallon of Pinesol to clean the deck and the patio, and mop the garage floor. Second was to get some pet cleaner, since the family dog had wallowed on the greasy garage floor and had his entire backside covered in grease so badly she couldn't let it back inside. After picking up the Pinesol the woman shopped her way to the pet section. Realizing she had a pretty pricey trip going already, she wondered if the Pinesol could be used to wash the dog with instead of adding another purchase to her cart.

She noticed a young stock clerk working the same aisle so she called him over and said "My schnauzer has grease and oil all over it's backside" and "do you think it would be ok to wash it in Pinesol?" The clerk considered for a minute and said "well lady if you do, I would stay off your bicycle for several days."

Thanks to OP!

My rear brake system ( from pedal back) was in horrid condition.. Previous owner drove the poor girl into the ground...The linkage from pedal to master cylinder was rusted, almost seized, barely moving.. The caliper was in no better condition, brake cleaner did nothing, looked like crap and everything seized. I mean, there was layers apon layers of crud.

SO....I dumped the whole thing pinesol, left it soak for 24 hours.. Wow! Removed the rust, the crud, the grease, everything... Looks almost new!

no its not petroleum base, it is pine oil based works great for carbs just be sure to clean out jets etc. with compressed air/carb cleaner

Yes, its a strong chemical based product. Mix it like 1% rest water. Works great for carbshousing etc (better dont use it on jets etc)

Dont know about sales in us....

Name is Tickopur, and is available for all kind of purposes, I use the R33, for carb cleaning.
