for an extended report on simple green:

i use the stuff that comes in an engine degreaser spray bottle from Canadian Tire. i've left models both plastic and metal in there for over a month (forgot about them) with little to no issues (lead and pewter get a slight metal colouration to a deeper grey). also used to clean Forge World resin with no issues. (only soaked the FW pieces for a couple days though)

as an added bonus, simple green makes the superglued joints brittle allowing you to take apart the metal models and clean them up properly (helps with those old Rouge Trader pieces that need some TLC).

my0.02 worth, hope its of use,

I've tied more than i've won and still had fun every time I've lost
