    Alcohol based cleaner should work - Muc Off Disk Brake cleaner is my stuff of choice.

    Any reason for putting motor oil on the brakes?!
    And please don't say "to stop them squeaking!!" :lol:

    If on the pads though, will be the end of them. New pads time!

    We have a dedicated workshop section airman where you might find more help/articles.
