Simple Green

I know this is a noobie question
just bought my ranger, under the bedliner is REALLY DIRTY some of it is like caked on, my question is will Simple Green hurt the Paint?
everyone always suggest simple green for everything so i figured i would try it to get this stuff off. (dont wanna have to scrub for hours if it can be avoided)

Thanks In Advance

No sir, simple green will not hurt your paint... its probably one of the safest cleaners you will find out there, and does the job. I actually use it and a scrub brush to clean up the white lettering on my wheels, works better than a lot of the other stuff i have found.

it wont hurt your oaint but it will strip any wax off thats on it. its a good idea to wax it after you use a cleaner like that on your paint

pressure wash it man. take it to a pay and spray and get under there with some goggles and some old clothes hahaha. but dont use that on your paint. when i had to swap radiators i decided to clean my engine bay cause of mud and it started to eat at the paint. but do it at your own risk thats my experience. oh ya its really good for getting bugs off of your windshield and bumper!

I love the stuff. We go through gallons per year in my dad's computer business. We use it to clean computer cases and monitors.
