Personal Observations

  • Degreaser/all purpose cleaner/bathroom and mildew cleaner/spray-on concrete cleaner w/agitation/spray-on rug cleaner w/agitation: 400:1
  • Heavy duty degreaser/heavy duty bathroom cleaner/heavy duty all purpose cleaner/heavy duty spray-on concrete cleaner w/agitation/heavy duty rug cleaner w/agitation/warm emersion w/agitation: 100:1
  • Super heavy duty degreaser/mildew remover/stain remover/non-GreaseMaster use pressure washer presoak/warm emersion: 25:1
  • Fast acting ultra heavy duty degreaser: 10:1
  • Deep stain remover/spray-on heavy grease removal w/agitation: 2:1
  • Four factors seem to impact GreaseMaster's ability to remove grease, oil and stains: Agitation, time, dilution strength, and heat
  • Once GreaseMaster is wiped off of the crud, be sure to go over it again with a clean agitator (like a rag, brush, etc.) if there is still crud left behind. The crud may have been loosened up by the penetration of the GreaseMaster and may continue to come off in some cases even better than with the initial agitation or wipe.
  • GreaseMaster won't remove discoloration as the color of the substrate has changed and it isn't just on the surface of the material
  • When using GreaseMaster on clothing, be sure to spray it on just before putting it in the wash or it will have a tough time removing the stain. However, make sure it soaks into the clothing before getting it wet or it will also have a tough time penetrating. If it doesn't remove it the first time, you can apply GreaseMaster repeatedly (before washing) and it will continue to remove the stain even after the dryer has set it.
  • Remember, the warmer the better the product works (and temperature may effect needed concentration levels, needed agitation or time)
  • Pressure washer applications for heavy grease removal are recommended at 140°F-190°F, although there are definitely work arounds to this and the product will still work great. See the above links for some recommendations and ideas.
  • On plastics and other porous substrates (especially with very greasy deposits) it seems to need a higher concentration to remove the deposits and get them out of the pores. Since GreaseMaster is a de-emulsifier, the more of it that is present, the easier it can pull grease out of the pores and away from the surface. If the surface is very textured, a brush does the best job helping GreaseMaster remove greasy, oily deposits and dirt (as opposed to wiping).
  • I've seen this product rinse easier and more completely than soap. It rivals pre-paint cleaners in its ability to clean surfaces residue free and seems to be every bit as gentle as a soap and water wash
  • Another trick that I've found works well (whether it is on a work surface, brush, rag or hands), is to apply GreaseMaster to the surface first before getting it dirty. It will allow for very quick and easy clean up, which I've found is very helpful when cleaning out parts cleaning brushes and such.
  • Thanks to Michael for giving me the idea when mentioning that it helps make hands easier to clean when they are presoaked in GreaseMaster
