I prefer Zep Citrus Degreaser from Home Depot diluted 3:1 over Simple Green. Simple Green can screw up your aluminum. I've heard too many horror stories about it to chance it when Zep Citrus costs the exact same and does just as good of a job.

Also, I steer clear of Armor All products (with the exception of the extreme tire shine gel). They all leave a very greasy/oily, shiny finish. First of all, this is a problem because it attracts dirt because it merely sits on top of the plastic/rubber, and dust quickly sticks to it. Also, it just looks very tacky, in my opinion. I want mine to look like it just came from the factory, so I prefer a clean, matte look. I use Aerospace 303 since it is water based and gets absorbed into the plastic/vinyl/rubber instead of sitting on top. Also, Aero 303 has anti-static properties, which is nice. It's kind of hard to find OTC, but I've heard it can sometimes be found at Ace Hardware.

But that's just one man's opinion. To each his own!
