Fantastic Stripping Agent!
October 20, 2014
First chemical guys product I've tried... and certainly the first of many.
Used the citrus wash at 1oz/gal concentration to strip off a cleaner wax applied 5 days earlier in order to finish polishing and apply a coating. Thus, wash induced scratches were my #1 enemy. Did a fantastic job! A 1/2 panel water beading test on the hood confirmed that the cleaner wax was either completely or mostly removed. At that concentration, the lubricity was insane. So, with a new mit, grit guards, and the citrus wash, I did not notice any obvious additional scratching. Mission accomplished!
Cool fact:: they add a sweet orange fluorescent dye to the product! Really glows in the sunlight. Not sure if this is for functional or aesthetic reasons... but it does start to tone down once the product reaches the recommended normal 1oz/5gal dilution level, so perhaps that's the idea? Would love to hear about this in the product description!
Pros:+Awesome finish stripping performance
+Biodegradable, and apparently very safe for all automotive materials.
Cons:-Uses a good bit of the bottle for stripping one car at 1oz/gal. However, the bulk (gallon) size makes the product much more affordable. Will buy this next time.
