New Hassle Free Way To Clean Car Parts!!!

Check this out, I'll start the story by telling you that I'm a 16 year old lazy **** boy (Typical teenage boy). I decided to clean up the chrome parts on my 355ci in my convertable project so I tore the valve covers, oil dipstick, timing chain cover, intake manifold, alternator cover, and distributer cap off to clean and polish them (You should see how dirty my dang engine gets, and it's not even driven every day). So, when I come back inside the house to get some laquer thinner, my mom asks me to unload and reload the dishwasher. I finished unloading the dishwasher and noticed that there was only a couple of plates and forks and stuff to load back in, then I looked at all the parts on my front porch, , well, you know where I put them . For dishwashing detergent I used one of the new Cascade 2 in 1 action packs and a little bit of jet dry with shine boost. You would not believe the results... I didn't even have to polish the parts they were so clean RIGHT OUT OF THE DISHWASHER!!!

Hmmm, I got a dishwasher somewhere in the kitchen, I think. I haven't been in there for a long time. I'll have to learn how it works and try that. If I have one.

Hey skyman, next time try shoving yourself in there and tell us how it went, would be cool to have an alternative way to take a shower.
