Just found out today that my bike fits perfectly into the shower , no more excuses for not cleaning it.

I hope the wife isn't on these forums

You must have a large shower!  My bike barely fits into the bath.

my first wife once came home and found the gearbox from our Chevette HSR in the bath, covered in gunk

I have put stuff through the dishwasher before while the wife's out

The dishwasher, there's an idea. Recken the cassette, chainrings and derailers could easily go thru there.

I always had a rug in front of the gas fire.

It covered the place where the MG flywheel left oily tooth marks on the carpet

get an ultrasonic bath - superb way to get your cassette and other bike bits clean

Just be careful of using detergent and salt on aluminium parts

On a similar front, I took to using our baby bottle steriliser kit to keep my own bottles bug free.  Mrs D never liked me doing it mind...

This is all fine as long as your remeber to clean the bath/shower/dishwasher/steriliser aftweards. Which is where you all seem to go wrong.

Also I don't recommend leaving a chain in something on the stove in a pan to boil dry. That's a smell I shall never forget.
