The soap made for washing cars works well. If I have some around I'll use that. Otherwise I use dish soap. And Simple Green works really well for washing and getting the crap off. If you buy the SG concentrate it goes a long way.

I keep my bike pretty clean, but not obsessively (I don't care if my rims are shiny). It's amazing what some simple green, soap, a sponge, and 20 minutes with the hose will do. If you want it REALLY clean, then you'll need some brushes and elbow grease. Clean enough is a personal thing.

Yeah, if you dilute the SG you should be fine. You can dilute it to use as a wash (in place of soap). It also works really well sprayed directly on dirtier areas.

If I really want the bike clean I spray the grimy parts with SG. Let it sit. Get the bike wet. Suds it up with the diluted SG. Let it dry in the shade. SG is pretty safe for all parts of the bike and good for the environment (and you). My Dad was in the Navy. We practically brushed our teeth with Simple Green. ;)
