You can also use automotive degreaser
to do the same job. I've used the one
sold in CrappyTire, SuperClean in the
purple bottle. Very gentle on plastic &
nylon fibre stuff.
You will need to scrub a bit though,
which requires rubber gloves as the
degreaser will strip all the natural
oils from your hands, leaving them
like a thousand year old mummy.
