One was speaking from experience of using the aforesaid Trichloroethylene when cleaning printing machinery. Had to tie a piece of rope to me ankle so the lads could pull me back down to earth and I thought I had only used a little bit on a cloth, was well ventilated area too. By eck that stuff is potent. There are other products that claim to do the same as trike, but I have yet to find a better degreasing agent.
