Usually Cif Kitchen Cleaner and the scrubby side of a sponge.

Hope this helps!

Everything from CIF, BBQ cleaner, Oven cleaner, etc. NO BLEACH.

Hand scrubbing brush and green & black scrubbing pads.........

A strong wrist and heavy duty rubber gloves........

Don't let it dry or you will get them covered with what looks like white marks that don't come off!

I dilute it 50-1 ( or there abouts ) and use a white scrubbing sponge, keep rinsing with hose pipe to wash off as I go on. Never had white marks from this after 6 years of using it, but I never let TFR dry anyway. Always used on my pride and joy motor also  ;D . Just one of the many cleaning products that folk use on this forum.
