Citra Solv Cleaning Applications:
|General purpose & light spotting
|Floors, walls & cars
Ovens & Grills, Cooking Grease -- Use full strength. Using a paper towel, sponge or brush, apply to surface to be cleaned and allow to stand (a few minutes for cooking grease on stoves, at least 15 minutes for grills and ovens). For ovens and grills, scrub surface with scrubbie sponge to remove burnt-on crud; repeat until all soil is removed; rinse with water. For stoves, oven hood or behind the stove, gently wipe clean with paper towel or sponge and rinse with water.
Heavy Grease, Oils, Tar, Machine Parts, Bike Chains, Engines, Brick, Concrete, Stone, Permanent Marker, Crayon, Fresh Paint, Wax, Adhesives, & Gum -- Use full strength. Apply with sponge, rag brush or spray bottle. Allow to stand for a few minutes. For brick, concrete and stone, scrub and rinse clean with water. For other cleaning, blot or wipe clean with a clean paper towel and rinse with water. (For metal parts, you may prefer not to rinse; the natural orange oil will act as an anti-rust agent.)
Carpets, Rugs, & Upholstery -- Use general-purpose dilution in a spray bottle or bucket for cleaning stains. Pre-soak or pre-treat before extraction use. Great for heavily soiled traffic lanes, doorways, etc.
Extraction Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning -- In a carpet extraction machine, fill solution tank with warm water and full strength Citra Solv at 2 oz. per gallon of water. Most extraction machine solution tanks have capacities of 3 to 10 gallons.
Cars & Boats -- Use full strength to remove tar, bugs, tree say, road paint, scum line and paint oxidation. Using a spray bottle, cloth or sponge, apply to area to be treated, wipe clean and rinse with water. Boat bilge cleaning is done by adding 8 oz. of full strength Citra Solv to water in bilge and letting stand for 20-30 minutes, then lightly scrubbing with a brush and rinsing out with water. Avoid contact with Plexiglas™ or high impact poly styrene plastics; Citra Solv may cause damage.
