Method and dilution

Use neat as supplied. No need to dilute.

In-situ cleaning

Can be applied cold to a cold surface but more effective if the surface is warm (not more than 65°c) Spray or brush on to surface, allow a least 15 minutes to soak agitating from time to time with a brush or scouring pad. Leave for up to say 1 hour if needed but do not allow to dry. Rewet with more gel if the surface dries. Rinse well with clean water and agitation. Apply a second application if required. A vinegar rinse will leave a sparkling surface.

Soak cleaning

Immerse small items in a bath of gel and leave for as long as necessary. Use a pad or a brush to remove loosened deposits rinse well in water.
