Citrus Based Cleaner (CBC) can be used in many ways. Here are just a few common uses:

  1. In Solution
    Diluted at ratios between 1:10 to 1:30, CBC can be used as a general all-purpose cleaner. Simply spray surfaces such as counter tops, furniture, walls, appliances, office machinery etc, and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
    • Always dilute with water (seawater can also be used).
    • For general cleaning, your solution should be no stronger than a 1:7 ratio.
    • Always test for colourfastness before using on fabrics.
  2. Dipping
    CBC can be used for dipping to remove carbon deposits from piston heads, epoxy glues, surface rust, and heavily greased surfaces such as engines, spare parts, metals etc. When dipping, use a 1:7 solution and soak for approximately 2hrs. If necessary, rinse with water to remove any light oil film.
  3. Steam Cleaning
    CBC can be used in steam cleaners for jobs such as paint work, floors, engines and heavy machinery. CBC will remove: urethane off glass, upholstery and carpets; overspray from brake lights, tires and glass, and silicon from door jambs and tyres. It can be used as a metal prep primer wash or for paint oxidation.
    • Add CBC to tank in a 1:50 solution, for pressures of 100psi and lower.
    • Increase solution to 1:60 for 200psi
    • Increase solution to 1:70 for 300psi
