Clean the disk with some alcohol and cook the pads over a gas ring to burn any oil out of them :)

Gin is the best drinkable alcohol degreaser :)

Surgical spirit or rubbing alcohol are probably more practical and alot cheaper :D

Cellulose thinners is also very good, a decent sized bottle from wilkos for a couple of quid - will do your degreasing requirements for years ;)

ideally your best off getting a specific disk cleaner... i can't see anything on chainreaction but you can get alcohol wipes that you clean your rotor with or meths (pure alcohol, get it from a hardwear shop and make sure you don't look like a scag head!)

but if you use gin who needs a brake anyway cos you won't feel anything?
