Question what do you use in your parts washer?

I've been using purple degreaser in it for about two years.
now that i cleaned my parts washer out today i was thinking of using something different.
i hate having to wait four hours after i fire up the wood stove for it to thaw in the winter.

I hated mine and sold it last night. I had used the crap they sold @ Harbor Freight and found it was quicker to use gasoline in a dishpan for 90% of the stuff I clean.

I prefer to take my parts to work and use the solvent tank there.
