I tried cleaning my new flatscreen TV like that once.
But it was still in the box & I ended up with a staple in the nuts instead.

I'm getting to the bottom of my wheel cleaner very soon, what do you all use? Cars or bikes, it doesn't matter.

I use Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner. It's gentle but cleans well and I would recommend it.

I'm hoping for a similar product that is better value.

For anyone interested in a pure car shampoo without any extras (gloss enhancers, wax, silicones, etc) I highly recommend Carpro Reset.

It's a 1:1000 concentration shampoo with no particular scent and it is extremely lubricating but cleans very well.

Carpro Reset deserves the slogan of "Car Shampoo - does everything it needs to - well"
