Econo-Clean has numerous uses for home and business:

Carpet Stains   Spray and soak the stain with a 10:1 dilution.  Agitate the stain with the spray bottle trigger or a stiff brush, making sure Econo-Clean is being worked down into the carpet base.  Use an old bath towel to remove the stain.  If some of the stain remains then repeat the procedure.  For extra performance, use freshly boiled water from a tea kettle as a rinse to your stain.  Pour into the stain, and dry with an old towel.

Carpet Shampoo   Econo-Clean can be used in a carpet shampooer or a steam cleaner. Your first step is to vacuum the entire carpet. Then remove all heavy stains by using a 10:1 dilution as outlined above. The recommended dilution is 50:1.  Most carpet shampooers have solution tanks with a 12 to 20-litre capacity. Fill them with hot water and then add 1-1 1/2 cups (8 to 12 ounces) of Econo-Clean.  Shampoo your carpet by doing one section at a time.  Spend more time on heavy traffic areas, as these areas will have the most dirt to remove.  Allow the area to dry, and enjoy your clean carpet!

Gum on Carpet   Fill a small glass with an ounce or two of a 10:1 dilution.  Place the glass in a microwave, and heat for 45-55 seconds.  Be careful, as the glass is hot!  Using a glove, remove the glass and pour the heated Econo-Clean onto the gum.  Watch the gum dissolve, and wipe up with a rag.

Upholstery   To clean upholstery, spray 30:1 dilution onto the stains, agitate the area with your spray bottle trigger or a stiff brush.  Then use an old bath towel to remove the stain.  You can also use your carpet machine on your upholstery if you have the proper attachments.

Laundry   Always have a spray bottle of 10:1 Econo-Clean in your laundry room.  Inspect all clothing before throwing it into your machine.  Spray all stains you find, making sure the area is well soaked.  If it is a bad stain, agitate the area with the spray bottle trigger or a stiff brush.  Econo-Clean works very well on ring around the collar, cuffs, make-up, lipstick, grass, food, blood, wine, grease, dirt and most other stains.  White socks can be cleaned by spraying them until they are soaked, then putting them in your washing machine.  Econo-Clean works very well on bed sheets, aprons, towels, napkins and tablecloths, and is used by many hotels, motels and restaurants for their laundry requirements.

Windows, Mirrors & Glass   To keep all your windows, mirrors and glass clean, use Econo-Clean at a 120:1 dilution.  Fill a spray bottle with water, and add 1 tablespoon of Econo-Clean.  Do not mix stronger than this or it will streak.  Mist the area to be cleaned, and wipe it with paper towels or newspapers.  If you want to remove scotch tape from glass, mist the area with a 10:1 dilution then put a paper towel on the area, and spray 10:1 onto the towel to soak it.  Leave it for 15 to 20 minutes, and then remove the paper towel.  Use a clean towel to buff off the tape and adhesive.

General Purpose   Econo-Clean will replace virtually all general purpose cleaning products.  It's great for floors, walls, ceilings, Formica, plastic, shower tiles, vinyl etc.  A 30:1 dilution will do most of your applications.  For tougher jobs, use a 10:1 dilution and give it more sitting time before wiping.

Glass Washing Machines   Econo-Clean has an excellent application in glass washing equipment.  These machines are used in most restaurants, bars, lounges, hospitals, hotels, extended care facilities, etc.  Use Econo-Clean to replace the cleaning and rinsing chemicals.  The correct mixture to use is a 20:1 dilution. Take a clean, empty 20-litre pail, fill it almost to the top with water, and add 1-litre of Econo-Clean concentrate.  You will receive excellent results on your glass care.  If you use a sanitizer chemical as a last step, continue to do so.  Most other suppliers will charge you $90.00 to $130.00 for a 20-litre pail of glassware chemical. When you start using Econo-Clean in your machine, your cost for a 20 liter pail will be $8.00 to $20.00, depending on your order quantity.  That gives you a savings of about $100.00 every time you change the pail. Ask your sales rep to calculate your exact savings.

Mildew, Calcium & Hard water Build-up   Apply a 10:1 solution to the area, and leave it for 10 to 20 minutes.  Use a stiff brush or nonabrasive pad to remove the buildup.

Ovens   Preheat your oven by using broil for 10 minutes.  Spray a 10:1 dilution of Econo-Clean onto the areas to be cleaned.  Let it sit for 15 minutes.  Use a nonabrasive scrub pad to help break up the built up grease.  Your last step is to use a towel to wipe up and buff the oven's surface.

Stainless Steel   Econo-Clean is an excellent and inexpensive way to maintain your stainless steel.  Use a 10:1 dilution to remove built-up grease and oil.  Always work with the grain of stainless steel for best results.  Once you have removed the buildup, use a 120:1 dilution to finish, then buff with a clean, dry cloth.  Routine cleaning will keep your stainless steel looking new for years.

Bathroom & Shower   Use a 10:1 dilution for all heavy-duty bathroom and shower cleaning.  To clean shower tiles, leave Econo-Clean on for 10 to 15 minutes. Use a nonabrasive scouring pad to help take off heavy mildew or soap scum.  A clean dry bath towel should be used to buff surfaces dry.  A light protective coat is left on tiles to help sheen water off.

Jewellery   To clean your rings, necklaces, chains, bracelets, and waterproof watches, simply add a capful of Econo-Clean to a large glass of hot water.  Let your jewellery soak for 10 to 15 minutes, giving it an occasional stir.  Remove your jewellery and buff it with a clean, dry towel.

Engine Degreaser   For best results, make sure your engine is hot from driving or idling for a few minutes.  Spray and soak the entire engine and hoses with a 7:1 solution of Econo-Clean.  Let the degreaser sit for 15 minutes, while you clean your tires and whitewalls.  If you have heavy grease buildup, then use a nonabrasive scouring pad to help.  Then use a garden hose to rinse off the engine and compartment.

Tires & Whitewalls   Spray and soak all tires with a 10:1 dilution of Econo-Clean.  Use a stiff brush, or sponge to scrub the tires. Econo-Clean will remove brake dust, dead rubber, road grime and help restore your tires to their original condition.

Car Interiors   A 10:1 dilution of Econo-Clean is great for removing any carpet, mat or upholstery stains.  A 30:1 dilution works well for cleaning the dash, doors, vinyl, leather, seat belts and doorjambs.  A 50:1 dilution is perfect for a carpet shampoo machine or steam cleaner.  A 120:1 dilution is great for all glass and mirrors, as well as car wash.

Pressure Washers   Econo-Clean works superbly in all pressure washers and steam cleaners.  Conventional powders usually clog nozzles and machines, while Econo-Clean is 100% water-soluble.  Most pressure washers run over 1,000 psi., so use Econo-Clean at 120:1 dilution.  If your holding tank is about 20 liters (5 gallons) then use 1 cup of concentrate per tank.  Hot water will always give better results than cold.

Shop Floors & Walls   Many shops use Varsol or other dangerous, corrosive, poisonous cleansers, which get rinsed into floor drains and make their way into our ground water.  There are hundreds of shops which have phased out these dangerous products and replaced them with biodegradable Econo-Clean.  For floors put 1 litre of Econo-Clean into a 20-litre pail of hot water.  Stir and splash onto your floor.  Use a stiff broom to work the Econo-Clean into your floor.  After cleaning, rinse with water.  To remove carbon or grease off shop walls, spray and soak a wall with a 10:1 dilution.  Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.  Use a broom or brush for heavy buildup.  Use a pressure washer or garden hose to rinse.  The use of Econo-Clean in your shop will make it a safer work area, save your money and protect the environment.

Paint Oxidation & Overspray   To remove paint oxidation and overspray use a 7:1 dilution of Econo-Clean.  Spray a section and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Use a clean, dry towel to wipe and buff in a circular motion, restoring the paint to its natural luster.

Autobody Shops   Econo-Clean is silicone free, making it suitable for autobody uses.  To remove silicone, spray the area with a 30:1 dilution.  Use a soft brush or towel to buff in a circular motion.  You can also use Econo-Clean for wax and grease removal.  Use a 30:1 dilution in a bucket or pail to hand wash.  For all rubbers, use a 30:1 dilution.  Spray evenly, let it sit for 30 seconds then wipe clean and dry with a clean towel or cloth.  This will remove all traces of grease, oil and dirt so your masking tape will adhere easily.  Econo-Clean can be used at 10:1 to remove paint overspray from booth lights or other areas.

Boats   To remove algae or other buildup from a boat's hull use a 10:1 dilution.  Spray evenly and let it sit for 10 minutes before wiping with an old bath towel. Faded paint can be easily removed by using a 10:1 dilution.  Spray evenly and use a soft brush or towel in a circular motion.  Now put a protective wax over the clean paint.  Tarps, awnings, canvas and boat covers can be cleaned with a 10:1 dilution.  Spray evenly and work it in with a stiff brush.  Use a garden hose or pail to rinse.  Boat motors can be degreased and kept clean with a 10:1 dilution.

Ships   Econo-Clean is excellent for most aspects of ship maintenance.  Bilge, engines, decks, rust removal and degreasing can all be done with a 10:1 dilution and a brush.  Econo-Clean is biodegradable, so it can be rinsed into the ocean, without affecting the environment.  Econo-Clean can also be diluted with seawater.

Aircraft   Aircraft can be maintained both inside and out with Econo-Clean.  Use 10:1 for heavy-duty applications such as removal of glycol, carbon, grease etc. The interior of an aircraft can be maintained with 10:1, 30:1 and 120:1 dilution, depending on the application.  Please refer to the dilution guide.

Recreational Vehicles   RVs can be kept in spotless condition with Econo-Clean.  Use a 10:1 dilution to remove the black streaks that run down from windows, and to remove heavy buildup.  Refer to the dilution guide for various applications.

Farms & Ranches   Econo-Clean helps farmers and ranchers get their maintenance work done quickly, safely and inexpensively.  Dairy farmers use it to keep their stainless steel equipment sparkling clean.  Heavy machinery, vehicles and equipment can all be degreased and kept clean by Econo-Clean, without poisoning farmland.

Sawmills   Econo-Clean has been used for years in the file rooms and maintenance departments of Western Canada's sawmills.  Tree sap or pitch can be removed from saw blades with a 10:1 dilution.  Spray down the blade, give it a few minutes to loosen up and then wipe it clean with a nonabrasive scrubbing pad.  Some sawmills will soak their blades in a pail or drum solution of 30:1 dilution overnight, for an easy clean up the next morning.  File rooms keep their equipment clear of carbide and carbon filings by using either a 10:1 or 30:1 dilution.  Simply spray the equipment, and then let it sit for a minute or two and wipe it clean.  Spraying equipment with a 30:1 solution can make future cleaning quicker and easier.  Let Econo-Clean dry on the equipment.  This masking technique will speed up future cleaning.


Automotive Dealerships   Most automotive dealerships are using countless products.  Many of these products have  limited capabilities, and are very dangerous to use.  Training detailers on how to use these various products is a daunting task, as there is room for error.   On a health and safety aspect, it is also risky for dealerships, as many of these products are not safe, and could pose a threat to employees.   It is much easier to train them in the use of one concentrate that replaces dozens of products.  The dilutions are simple, and once diluted as recommended, Econo-Clean is completely safe, non- toxic and NON WHMIS controlled.  One single 20 litre pail of Econo-Clean concentrate will replace up to $3000 of automotive supply products.  Econo-Clean will detail a vehicle bumper to bumper , including engines, interiors, and exteriors for less than $4 CDN per car.
