Rated 2 out of 5Â by LosRubios Not really that heavy duty
Used this with our AR610 electric power washer on 2-3 different jobs that needed a de-greaser and the results weren't that convincing.
Using the product is simple enough, you just drop the detergent suction tube into the degreaser bottle and set the pressure washer to its detergent mode and the pressure washer will mix in the detergent so you can suds the surface to be cleaned.
Firstly we tried it on some engine oil that had spilled onto our concrete driveway while I was changing the oil on my truck. Mixing in the detergent with the washer was ineffective so I put it on neat and brushed it in. This option wasn't much better and I ended up using a different brand of de-greaser to remove the oil from the concrete.
Next I tried it on the truck itself which was slightly muddy in the wheel wells from a recent trip to the dump and covered in a lot of bird mess from sitting under a tree near my wife's bird feeders.
Again, I used the detergent mode on the pressure washer to suds the inner wheel wells of the truck and also the hood and roof. I let this sit for 5-10 mins and then pressure washed and basically didn't see much difference as compared to pressure washing without using a detergent. I ended up having to wipe the wheel wells with a sponge to get all signs of the mud spots off and also sponge the hood and roof to completely remove all evidence of the birds' calling cards.
I think I must have a different idea of what 'heavy duty' actually means and this cleaner/degreaser is probably better suited to very light degreasing or cleaning work.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Pohonui Just average...
I used this product on my deck, with a power washer because it was a concentrate, heavy duty cleaner for a pressure washer. I was trying to get up some of the winter dirt and grime, some mildew, etc. I have to say I didn't see much difference after spending hours washing and spraying. I let it soak in for awhile, tried again, no better. I was pretty surprised, and Heavy Duty? I have to say "No". I tried it for other things, washed my car with it and really, it did okay, but no better than Dawn detergent. It does work, but it isn't what I expected, not as powerful as I had hoped and was disappointed it didn't do a better job with the power washing. I was hoping to power wash the house with it but I think it would be a waste of time. I'll use it to wash my car. Sorry...just not impressed and expected more from a Simple Green product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bernie A friendlier way to clean
Used this product with our power washer. Worked very well. Plan on giving some to oldest son for his use on his siding. Smells better than the chemical alternatives; does as good a job.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Upsjdri Amazing results. My patio and rain away ceiling looks like it was just installed. This stuff reall works; no plant damage.
I used this product to clean soot and grease staining from my BBQ grill installed in a covered outdoor patio. I was truly amazed at the results. It's effective, reasonably priced and there has been no harm done to the planting a around the patio. Highly recommend!!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by soldbydon Cleans Well; Less Toxic than other Cleaners
Good for general cleaning where dirt and/or grease are present and minimal risk to surrounding plants and shrubs is desired. Not as good as some bleach-based cleaners on mold. Aroma is somewhat pungent.
