The $80 iSonic Ultrasonic Cleaner, model P4820-WPB, makes cleaning bicycle drive rain parts, and I imagine a lot of other nasty things, much easier. It is totally a luxury, as you can certainly get the same results by hand, but not without a lot more effort, and a lot more mess. I love how easy it was, and how clean/quiet […]
