CITRUS OIL DEGREASER
PDF version for print
STONESAVER Citrus Oil
Degreaser for Paving Stones and
Concrete is a unique blend of concentrated citrus extracts (oils of orange,
lemon, lime etc.) and emulsifiers making it one of the most effective oil and
grease stain removers available. Protect your investment with STONESAVER quality products.
DIRECTIONS: [Step 1]
Pre-wet stained area with water. Apply a liberal amount of STONESAVER Citrus Oil Degreaser to the
stained area. Vigorously scrub stain
with a stiff bristle scrub brush. Repeat
[Step 1] and rinse away cleaner and residue thoroughly with water (strong water
pressures work best). Stains that have
deeply penetrated into the concrete may resurface repeatedly after initial
cleaning and drying. Repeat [Step 1] as
often as required to eliminate all saturated oils. Remove all stains with the appropriate STONESAVER stain cleaners. [Step 2] Clean entire surface with STONESAVER Concrete Cleaner & Surface
Prep. [Step 3] Seal the surface with the appropriate STONESAVER Sealer.
CAUTION: As a
precautionary measure when working with STONESAVER
products, protective clothing,
gloves, boots, eye wear and respirators should be worn. Avoid contact with eyes.
FIRST AID TREATMENT:
If splashed in eyes or on skin, flush thoroughly with water.
CONTAINS: Sodium Metasilicate, D-Limonene.
harder, stronger and more compressed a concrete is, the tougher it is to
extract oils from deep within itís core.
This is why oil stains are the toughest to clean from concrete. What appears to be a mere surface stain, may
in fact be deeply penetrated. The longer
the oils remain on a surface, the deeper they will penetrate. A cleaner can only clean on the surface for a
short period of time before drying and rendering itself useless. Due to this restrictive working time limit,
the cleaner can only penetrate a short depth into the pavement, thus cleaning
only near the surface. After scrubbed,
rinsed and during the initial drying period, it will appear that the stain has
been removed. However, if deeply
penetrated, the stain will not be fully extracted from the pavement. The
remaining hidden oil inside the pavement will be forced upwards by the
intrusion of the rinsing water and within 1 - 24 hours, a slight to dark stain
can reappear. A light stain usually
means minimal extra cleaning, while a heavy stain can mean multiple cleaning
attempts. Citrus Oil Degreaser works
fantastically at breaking down and rinsing away oils, however due to the nature
of manufactured concrete, the cleaner can only penetrate the surface
approximately 1/8th Ē. Citrus Oil Degreaser is a high pH balance and will not harm or discolor
the pavements surface no matter how many cleaning attempts are made to extract
all deeply saturated oils. Citrus Oil
Degreaser should be used as a pH neutralizer when concerned about remaining,
insufficiently diluted acids after Concrete & Surface Prep Cleaning. This neutralizing step is recommended when
Cleaning and Sealing Concrete Industrial Flooring or when STONESAVERís Concrete
Water Repellent is used on a surface which has been cleaned with STONESAVERís
Concrete Cleaner & Surface Prep.
