FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

There are currently four (4) Auto Valet water based cleaners and degreasers available.

  • PURPLE POWER: a concentrated, versatile, muscle-based cleaner and degreaser. Heavy duty, dilutable, and is free-rinsing with controlled foam.
  • TRANSPORT: a concentrated cleaner degreaser. Tough on grease and grime, it is  designed for transport trucks, new vehicle transit coating remover, and an overall vehicle cleaner and degreaser.
  • D’LIMOKLEEN PLUS: a non-corrosive and non-toxic, concentrated, and versatile cleaner and degreaser. Use to emulsify and suspend substances such as oil, grease, fat, rust stains, carbon, and dirt from most surfaces.
  • ULTRA KLEEN: a ready to use spray cleaner and degreaser, that may be diluted further for lighter applications. Used to easily penetrate and lift grease, oil, wax, clay soils, nicotine, and protein type soils.

Cleaners and degreasers are liquid products designed to remove dirt, grease, oils, and stains from a variety of interior and exterior vehicle surfaces. These surfaces include natural and synthetic fabrics, leather, metals, painted surfaces, plastics and rubber. There are two types of cleaners and degreasers; solvent based and water based. Each is formulated and applied differently from each other. Solvent based and water based cleaners and degreasers also have best usage applications depending on the makeup of the substance to remove.

Water based cleaners and degreasers are governed by the pH. The pH is the measure of how acidic or basic (alkaline) the product is formulated to be, and determines what substances can be removed. Products in Auto Valet's water based cleaners and degreasers category are formulated to be basic (alkaline) in their pH levels. This allows them to act as all-purpose cleaners for general removal of soil on surfaces. Oil, grease, and lubricants are easily removed with water based cleaners and degreasers as the alkali reacts with these substances, making them water-soluble and easier to rinse away. Water based cleaners and degreasers can be diluted with water to best suit the application requirements, and are best used to degrease and clean engine compartments and remove carbon. Water based cleaners and degreasers include PURPLE POWER, TRANSPORT, D'LIMOKLEEN PLUS, and ULTRA KLEEN.

Solvent based cleaners and degreasers are formulated using organic solvents. Organic solvents are used to solubilize (dissolve) residues of fats, oils, and grease; breaking them down into smaller particles and carrying it into the solution, away from the area being cleaned. Solvent based cleaners and degreasers provide the opportunity of quick cleaning; dissolving and carrying away soils without extended prep, processing, or drying time. However; they typically contain higher levels of V.O.C’s, are usually flammable (must be kept away from open flames, hot surfaces, or sources of ignition), and cannot be diluted with water. Most solvent based cleaners and degreasers are applied only to dry surfaces, and are best used to remove solvent based substances such as tar and undercoating. Solvent based cleaners and degreasers include SUPER-O, SUPER SOL, HERC, OUST, and SAP REMOVER.

  2. For white wall cleaning, spray diluted TRANSPORT solution onto tires. Agitate solution by scrubbing. Rinse the solution off the area of application.
  3. For an engine degreaser, spray TRANSPORT solution to soak the engine compartment. Let sit for 5 minutes. Rinse the solution off, preferably using a pressure washer and hot water.
Dilutions:
Transit coating removal - dilute 500 mL of TRANSPORT per 500 mL of water (1:1)
Engine degreaser - dilute 500 mL of TRANSPORT per 500 mL of water (1:1)
Whitewall cleaning - dilute 250 mL of TRANSPORT per 1 L of water (1:4)
Concrete floors - dilute 100 mL of TRANSPORT per 1 L of water (1:10)

Precaution: Do not mix with other chemicals. Keep from freezing.
