Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - Buyer's Guide - IAN BESWICK AL­BER­TON

The say­ing about old English cars and mo­tor­bikes, “If there is no oil un­der­neath, there is no oil in­side,” is very true. As the owner of a 1950 MG TD, I can at­test to oil stains be­ing an is­sue.

I have used var­i­ous clean­ing agents over the years. Then, this morn­ing, I tried some good South African-made Flight hand-cleaner on my open-face brick drive­way. As I ap­plied it, the stain im­me­di­ately re­leased and could be eas­ily hosed off. I used an old tooth­brush, but it will prob­a­bly work fine ap­ply­ing it with a small cloth or your fin­ger.

I thought about shar­ing this only af­ter see­ing how well it worked. The bricks shown were by far the worst af­fected and now the stains are vir­tu­ally in­vis­i­ble.
