DIY Baking Soda Blaster
I know I didn't show the hub before the blasting, but it's from my 1980 Motobecane Grand Touring bicycle and probably had 33 years worth of a yellow-brown gunky junk coating. It would've been a pain to clean it thoroughly with brushes and solvent. This is also an excellent method for carburetor cleaning when there's a risk you'll damage rubber parts with solvent. When finished blasting, just rinse with warm water.

Oven Cleaner Cleans Engine Parts?
We heard that you can use oven cleaner to clean engine parts, so we gave a try. Always use gloves and a mask when using oven cleaner. Spray the parts generously. This stuff will kill your grass so do it in a spot you don't really care about. You can see the oven cleaner working as the engine oil melts off. After about 15 or 20 minutes, rinse the parts with a water hose to see the results. For about $3 a can the results were pretty awesome. We would recommend using this method to anyone interested in a cheap and affective engine degreaser. Thanks for watching, be sure to subscribe and check out our last video.
