Not for Powder Coatings  Time owned: more than 12 months
It is a good cleaner, but don't get it on anything that is painted. I had a Henry Survivor Rifle and the Gun Scrubber took the powder coating off and essentially destroyed it. Fortunately, Henry replaced it at no cost to me, but I learned my lesson. (I also bought two more Henry rifles - fantastic customer support).

OK for PCB's now!  Time owned: more than 12 months
This product has been reformulated to combine the original and plastic-safe versions, so it is now safe for things like PCB cleaning. Used it for years on my guns, and now I alsways have a can in the hamshack too.

Works well but watch out!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
It definitely cleans and degreases brilliantly, but beware - it dissolves plastics - be sure to wipe it off immediately!

Best degreaser/solvent I've seen  Time owned: more than 12 months
This stuff deserves a place right beside Caig DeOxit on the radio restoration/repair workbench. Available at most gun shops. I've used it for years, it cleans and degreases instantly and totally. Relube immediately to prevent rust if required, this stuff even sucks grease and oil from metal surface pores, and bare steel will begin to rust right away after use. Use outdoors ONLY, follow safety instructions on can carefully. I believe this is equivalent to (or might even be) 1,1,1 Trichloroethane, which is not good to breathe. The only legal product I've seen that is equal in cleaning/degreasing power to the old outlawed Carbon Tet.
