Krol penetrant is by far the best chemical I have in the shop. It truely does work!  It is pricey, but definitely get what you pay for.

Then comes anti-sieze paste.  Been using Wurth for years.  Every fastener gets a little before going back on (not lug nuts!).

Brake clean is probably 3rd as it is quick and effective on cleaning small parts.

In reply to erutherford :

Definitely agree with the brake cleaner. Really effective at what it does–though you sometimes have to be careful what you're spraying it on.
