Music to accompany chain cleaning.

Well their you stand . . dirty chain in a jar of white spirit (if you use this method of cause) ready to shake vigorously.
I believe MickF uses this method. Just had a vision of Mick doing it to the beat of a Samba. :D
Wnat would your choice be ?

Funny how you can all remember the ad though! :lol:
