Burnt Milk
« on: May 06, 2013, 04:08:34 PM »
Out riding today, saw a tanker at the side of the road with what looked like a leak. Scrubbed the speed right off, thought it was a diesel spill,
but it was milk!!! The problem was the front tyre splashed it all over the exhaust, resulting in a smell of burnt milk and a burnt residue on the exhaust which I can't get off. Tried everything in my cleaning kit, but no luck. Any ideas!!! :084:

You can try commercial cleaners for ovens. Products to clean fireplace glasses insert should also be efficient. What it's sure is that using these cleaners, you cannot damage the exhaust!

Keep riding. It'll all burn off pretty quickly.

I agree w/Herve': go get you some spray on oven cleaner and let her rip. Then just wipe off residue as soon as the pipe is cool again. -Dr Ron  :018:

If that doesn't work I think you will find that "Gunk" (if available in the UK) will take just about anything off.

Thanks for all the tips, so far hand cleaner has had the best result!! But still more to get off. Will try the oven cleaner idea on the weekend when I get out next. Will let you know how I get on, in the meantime keep the tips coming.
