Re: Clean Gitzo tripod

Hey guys. I have a GT3531, new to me. My first question is, besides gitzo grease, would krytox or silglyde be a better choice? I'm not paying $32 for grease tubes. Secondly, can I throw the threaded locking portion with the rubber grip and all into my ultrasonic cleaner with original simple green? Do I wipe the legs down with water, simple green or rubbing alcohol? Any other tips?

It's just a tripod. No electronics, no calibration, no whatever, just some tubes and screws. I just clean it with water, sometimes with some dishwasher. And I use cheap grease (that doesn't attack plastic). No need for "high performance greases", ultrasonic cleaning or overthinking.
