Cleaning solution/ supplies for filthy presses

Hello. We just purchased a couple of new presses which need serious cleaning before they can be used. I was hoping that someone could recommend a cleaning solution that would be effective but not harmful to the presses. One is a windmill. Thank you!

on my C&P I scraped off the sludge wit ha puddy knife and washed it down with a standard citrus cleaner from the hardware store put into a spray bottle.

From there I oiled as necessary.

for surface cleaning I like simple green. Strong, but not nasty. If you see rust on exposed metal, try some wd-40 and a score pad.

My CP platen was thick with dried ink on the underside. I used some 3m stripper on it. Worked great!
