Green Oil Green Oil Clean Chain Degreaser
Used this both for chain and (diluted) general bike cleaning.
Worked as good as any of the other products I'd used before; reassuring that it's not damaging to the environment and price-wise, it's comparable and even cheaper than some of those with 'toxic' chemicals.
Would recommend and will be buying again when my current bottle runs out.

good chain degreaser and diluted general cleaner
I swear by this stuff. I use it as a chain degreaser and I dilute it to refill the large Green Clean spray bottles.

Effective, smells nice, but a small bottle
I haven't tried lots of different chain degreasers, but was impressed with how well this worked. It seems to be an amazing detergent that never gives up. It smells pleasantly citrusy too.
I also liked the sarcastic warning on the bottle "Do not drink (obviously!)".
Just a shame it's such a small bottle. One chain-clean was all I got out of it. I suppose that's not bad for £3.60.

This stuff is great!
...and being kinder to the environment is just another feather in it's cap!
The horrible, gritty gunge on my chain came away beautifully!
And the diluted solution had the frame gleaming!
I will buy this product again and again!

Great product, ecofriendly too!
You don't have to use alot but that is just as well as the bottles come in very small sizes. I've used the degreaser a couple of times and the chains come out gleaming. It is easy to apply too.

Should bought a larger bottle, otherwise it worked
Should bought a larger bottle, otherwise it worked. Used it with park tools Chain cleaner. No problem at all to get a good result.

This stuff seems great - really works well
Very happy with this - it really does a good job..

works but not as good as advertised
A small bottle of concentrated degreaser fluid which essentially needs to be used neat and still takes a lot of effort to do the job which other, cheaper products do reasonably well.

Perfect Chain Cleaner
Bought this give my chain a good clean.
Have used quite a few so called chain degreasers but his is incredible.
Run it neat through chain and then then dilute in a chain batch and it is sparkling, like new.
Will definitely keep a good supply of this stuff

Does the job, but are other products better?
Whilst it does a very good job of cleaning your chain, a paint brush with some general bike cleaner in an old bidon works as good if not better.

Does the job
Lasts quite a while for what looks like a small bottle. Like all degreasers requires mixing with a bit of elbow grease but works well and gives you a shiny drivetrain. 5*

Needs lots of elbow grease
While other degreasers (Park) seem to dissolve the chain crud, this requires the application of a lot of elbow grease. I tried the chain soaking in a bottle method and while the crud on the outer plates was shifted due to shaking the bottle, between the rollers the crud still remained. Even brushing between the rollers after the soak didn't shift it easily. Also of note is that this is trying to degrease the Green Oil Chain Lube, from the same company!

Having very little experience using degreasers, this one does what it says it does. It smells nice and you can also use it as a general bike cleaner. Being a commuter biker i am so far satisfied.

Wanted to be good to the environment so bought this not expecting excellent performance but it works really well.

My Chain was covered in grease and oil so I used this neat and after one clean the chain looks almost new.

Cheap as chips, dilutes 1-9 so great value.
Smells good too... probably best not to drink though!
Degreased my chainset nicely and apparently kind to the environment which is a plus!

Not as simple and easy as the spray on Muc-off degreaser. You need to apply, pedal in, wash off and re-apply if needed.
It still does the job though and is a "green" product. Cool packaging as well.

Great cleaning product
This works really well, removes all the oil and stuff on the chain and chainset making them look like new.

works and smells great
this eco chain decreaser works really well and is super easy to apply and use

does the trick
It makes a good foam on chain and rings when spinning the rear wheel and using a small bike brush.

I used this product for the first time to renovate two cycles. Being a bit of a skinflint and not used a degreaser before I plumped for diluting the product to make is go further as described on the bottle. Its main use was to remove oil from the chain. It worked well over the cycle but I wish I had used it concentrated on the chain, which I shall do in future when I buy the next bottle as diluted it didn't do the job on a heavily oiled an dirty chain. I do however blame myself and not the product.

Great chain cleaner
Have bought this on previous occasions, wouldn't look to use any other chain cleaner.

Good for the planet, great for my bike
I wanted a degreaser tough enough to really tackle the grime, but gentle on the environment. This seemed to fit the bill.
So far I have been really impressed with it. It's easy to use, smells good and both my bike and conscience are clean!

Effective and smells nice
I haven't used other degreasers so I don't have much to compare with but it does the job well enough and smells of citrus instead of chemicals - so what's not to like about that!

Do your bit for the Planet
A bit fluffy bunny but why not? It works well so this is what I use.

Additional information about acid82 could not be loaded.
I tend to do it in a couple of steps.
1. run it over the chain and run the chain up and down the gears then leave for a few minute to penetrate. Then I give it a rinse off.
Pop a few extra drops in the water section of the chain cleaner, you don't need much, then run the chain through and it will remove the rest of the muck. If you then find it's not quite enough you can always run some over the chain and leave it to soak again then run back through the chain cleaner.
It goes quite a long way, providing you go with the first step and more grime means more time to penetrate.
