Bug & Tar Cleaner, then clean with water and Dawn Dishwashing Liquid. The Bug & Tar cleaner will break down all of the grease and oil, and the dawn will get everything clean without a greasey residue.

I use the same thing for ALL grease and grim removal and its the most simple thing you can think of and I stumbled on it by accident, it removes all and is super cheap even the "no-name" brand at the dollar store works just as good...ready?? SCRUBBING BUBBLES......yal think I'm kiddin...I'm not. That stuff works like you wouldn't believe and like I said its super cheap.

Mineral Spirits work great, but I also like Castrol Super Clean.
