Simple Green offers a replacement for harmful Industrial Cleaner and Industrial Degreasers. Our objective was to find a Industrial Cleaner and Degreaser that cleaned as well as, or better than, 1, 1, 1 TCA. The product under consideration was to be biodegradable and safe to workers and the environment. This meant the Industrial Cleaner and Industrial Degreaser should not contain chlorinated solvents, petroleum products, acids, caustics, or other hazardous chemicals. These product formulations met all the objective criteria required of an Environmentally Friendly Cleaner, Earth Friendly Cleaners, known as Green Cleaners and is offered throughout our Industrial cleaners and Industrial Degreasers on our web site.
Simple Green is uniquely different from other cleaners because it concentrated, non-toxic and biodegradble.
Concentrated: As a concentrate, Simple Green is more economical, versatile and uses less packaging than most other cleaning products. Simple Green can be custom diluted with water on practically any washable surface. (SEE LABEL INSTRUCTIONS FOR MORE DETAILED USAGE INFORMATION.)
Use Simple Green throughout your home.
In the Bathroom: Simple Green can be used to clean (not disinfect) porcelain, ceramic tile, sinks, toilets, bathtubs, showers, faucets and fixtures, glass shower doors, floors counters, aluminum, chrome and stainless steel. Use with adequate ventilation and please read and follow all label directions.
In the Laundry: Simple Green boosts cleaning in the washing machine. Please read and follow the label instructions for laundry use.
To clean drains: Although Simple Green will not always break apart complex clogs that contain a variety of things (hair, food, grease, etc.), it can be instrumental in keeping your drains free of clogs. When cleaning your kitchen floor with Simple Green, try mixing the dilution in your sink (with the drain plug in, of course,) clean and recharge your sponge-mop directly in the sink while cleaning the floor, and then pull the plug and let the dirty Simple Green/water flow down the drain. Or, mix the dilution in a bucket, mop the floor, and then pour the bucket down the sink drain. (You may need to have a drain-sieve in place when you do this).
A good regular maintenance tip is to plug the sink, fill the sink with hot water and add 1 cup Simple Green for small sinks (bathrooms) or 2 cups for large sinks (kitchen), and then (wearing a rubber glove to protect from the hot water,) unplug the sink and let the mixture flow down the drain. Regular maintenance of drains can greatly diminish or eliminate clogging problems
On boats, trailers or other equipment: Simple Green is the perfect cleaner for keeping your boat, trailer, personal watercraft, fishing and skiing equipment, inflatables and much more sparkling clean and looking like new. Use Simple Green to remove grease, grime, oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, fish blood, dirt and more from all washable surfaces including: fiberglass, gel coat, most plastics (not instrument panels), treated wood, carpet, fabric, upholstery, canvas, rubber, vinyl, and glass. Please read and follow all label directions and do not allow degreasing rinses to fall into lakes, rivers, oceans, or storm drains.
In a pressure washer/power washer: Simple Green does a great job when used in or with a pressure/power washer. It can be used to clean vehicles, concrete, siding, lawn furniture, canvas, etc.
For cleaning siding (aluminum or vinyl) use approximately a 30:1 dilution. (30 parts water to 1 part Simple Green.) If you have to pre-mix in a bucket and then your equipment pulls it straight through, mix 4 ounces Simple Green for every 1 gallon of water. If your equipment automatically gives you a dilution and you can't alter that dilution, it is probably a 7:1 dilution (most common.) In that case, mix a 4:1 dilution in a bucket and pull that through. (4:1 @ 7:1 = a 28:1 solution.) Start at the bottom and work upward to avoid clean streaks. Work in sections, cleaning and rinsing, so that the product does not dry on the surface before the rinse stage. Really heavily soiled siding might require light scrubbing with a non-metallic bristle brush or shop broom.
Before doing this job, make sure you have eye protection. Simple Green will sting your eyes but not damage them. However, the pollutants and oxidized paint that can come off of your siding can seriously damage your eyes - so please wear safety glasses or goggles. Additionally, move any vehicles, people or animals away from the downwind area of your job. (Vehicles won't be harmed, but wax might be removed if over-spray sits on the car for too long prior to rinsing.)
After the job is over, give any ground areas exposed a good watering. This will help the Simple Green and water penetrate the soil, where it will biodegrade. Rinse off plant leaves and tree-trunks. Don't leave any standing puddles or containers of Simple Green and water where animals might drink. Too much ingested can cause diarrhea.
Lastly, when cleaning vehicles, lawn furniture or canvas (same dilution ratio as siding,) don't allow runoff to enter storm drains. This is a violation of the Clean Water Act (which states that nothing can be put down a storm drain but rainwater!). Simply push the runoff with your hose or pressure washer to a grassy area and water it in.
