I also use multiple engine cleaning brushes bent into different shapes. I haven't tried the pine sol, but I do like the smell.
I use my sink because I don't have a wife that won't let me
plus it's a basement big utility washtub that I wash stuff in all the time, but I do use the kitchen one sometimes lol. I can even put parts on the kitchen sink, dining room table, office, even have headers stored in a spare bathroom.
