Oil off a white frame?
I've got an old aluminium bike that's gloss white but now has many layers of grime on it. Does anyone have any advice on cleaning products? The mechanical parts are shiny and smooth but the frame looks a mess...

Just use whatever you normally use. Then move on from there, degreaser, wd etc until you've got the angle grinder out!!!!!

Best thing I've ever used on metal is autosol however I have no idea if that's ok on a painted frame??? I've used it on motorbike chrome and it's an amazing product. Removes rust, proper road grime and oil.

Whatever you use, depending on the age of the frame the paint could bubble which a lot of alu frames do over time anyway.

Sugarsoap, does what all the others do, but is way cheaper, and smells nice..

Baby wipes + elbow grease.

Although I'd be tempted to bin it and buy a new one ;)
