Default Cleaning after flight

What is the best cleaner to get oil off your plane after flight? I currently use windex, what in your opinion works the best? Do you have any "special" mixes that you use?
Thanks

I was using a citrus 409 or something like that. It worked okay but I found that when added a little bit of dish washing soap it really cleaned much better and leaves the planes shiny. [8D]

I use 91% isopropyl alcohol purchased off the shelf at Walgreens.
