Is new product from WD-40 better than our reigning champ?

FAST Acting Degreaser is part of a ninestrong range of Specialist maintenance sprays that covers everything from a contact cleaner to white lithium grease. They all come in 500ml aerosols with the hinged Smart Straw.
The solvent-based degreaser needs to be allowed to penetrate after being applied, although no time is given. We left it for several minutes before using a low-pressure spray to rinse it off.
It just had the edge over Hyper Clean and its aerosol delivery made it easier to use. But it works out more expensive than the five-litre tin from Comma.
It’s effective and convenient, although it will prove costly for big cleaning jobs.
