Default Engine Bay Cleanup with Mother's All Purpose Cleaner & Back to Black

I really wish I had taken a "before" picture. I blew it!

We just got back from a vacation that took us from Florida to the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina and Tennessee. Our journey included trips down clay roads in Georgia, gravel mountain roads in Cades Cove in Tennessee, and miles and miles on the highway in the rain.

And .... at just over 30,000 miles I'd never bothered to clean the engine bay of our '17 Durango R/T. There was a LOT of road grunge and a lot of Georgia clay from my wife's monthly trip to visit her parents.

Kudos to Mothers for making an awesome Speed All Purpose Cleaner. I just sprayed a liberal amount throughout the engine bay and then used an old wash mitt to wash the surfaces. A quick rinse and the engine bay came clean beyond my expectations.

So ... I grabbed the Back to Black aerosol and quickly made everything look brand new.

Total clean up time .... maybe 10 minutes. Maybe.
