Oil Pan Cleaning

I dropped the pan last night to replace my cross seals. Before I put it back in, I would like to clean out the bottom of the pan. What can I use to degrease and clean it? I was think Simple Green or something like it, but after some thought I wasnt sure if it would leave a residue. What has worked well for you guys in the past?

Thanks, Nick

No need to worry, any old degreaser will do. If you are concerned wash it with dish detergent afterwards and dry it in the sun.

Or just run it through the dish washer. Use the "pots & pans" cycle.

Any solvent will work. I used old gas because I am cheap.
