Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheHeater Excellent Water Based Degreaser
There are two products I use in my shop to degrease auto and truck parts. This stuff and Trisodium Phosphate powder. Both are excellent for dispersing and removing grease and oil from anything. Far superior to using an organic solvent, especially the chlorinated solvents out there that are effective degreasers, such as Brakeclean. No respirator needed when you go water based. And this cleaner can be used to clean your engine too (just rinse it thoroughly on painted surfaces). And sometimes I mix the two together with water for a great one-two punch. They (Citrus and Trisodium Phosphate) are both excellent to remove paint. Having said that, you know that this product should be used carefully on painted surfaces; it must be quickly rinsed off (scrupulously) with plenty of warm water.
Do not use without gloves. It removes every molecule of oil from your skin, similar to Borax.
Another little known use for this product that many will appreciate: it cleans every possible fingerprint and stain off of stainless steel surfaces, and leaves no residue if rinsed and wiped down completely. This is by far the best product of any for detailing stainless steel cooktops, refrigerator, oven and dishwasher surfaces. When I get done using this to clean those things, the kitchen looks stunning.
Mix about one part to 20 parts water, or just throw a cup or two in a bucket with two gallons of hot water, put gloves on and use a sponge to clean the surfaces. Rinse with hot water and sponge, and dry surface with a clean dry towel immediately. Make sure you wipe the stainless steel with the grain or you will scratch it, no matter how soft the sponge may be. Instant gratification for those of us who are hard core detail freaks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheCleaningLady Have made a permanent change
I am a commercial cleaner, cleaning businesses, but mostly clean apartment move outs, many people move and leave the kichen stove, cabinets, walls and counters with spots of grease that have been there months to years. This product works great, It's wonderful that its a concentrate and can be diluted depending on the mess, the smell leaves a nice citrus scent. This doesn't bother my airways, like other degreasers can. It's safe for almost all home surfaces, highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrBurton My first choice for dirty jobs.
This gets used all the time. I like to split it up with one spray bottle at full strength and one diluted to half strength or less, and pick the best one for the job. This is great for cleaning up old equipment you've bought or going to sell - it really picks cuts through the grease, grime, and dirt like almost nothing else. I've also used it to clean up the soles of dirty shoes, quick wipe downs of melamine shelving, and get rid of hard water crust on shower heads by soaking the head in a container of diluted cleaner. And HD has it at the best price I've seen for this size of orange cleaner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CaptainColorado Great product! Their spray bottles are worthless/leak
I have used this product in many applications. It does not discolor surfaces, it has a pleasant aroma, it is powerful but will not burn your skin, it is biodegradable and rinses clean.
Good for grease and grime removal on auto engines, motorcycles, lawn mowers, etc. Negative: Their spray bottles are worthless. They leak almost instantly. I have gone thru at least a dozen of their spray bottles and they all leaked at the trigger. I called the company several times and only received obfuscation. They always want the serial numbers off the bottles after I have sent them to recycle. Frustrating to deal with.

I have been using this product for a year now to clean rims, tires, and wheel wells. This stuuff works great, i mix up 4 oz. in a 32 oz. spray bottle and it cleans chrome wheels better than anything i have ever used, it is also very cheap which saves me money for more profit in my detailing!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RogerBeagle Great all round cleaner for the home.
I have used this product for several years now and it is now the only cleaner I use. As a general purpose cleaner in a sprayer at 5 – 10% mixture with water. As a Laundry detergent in hot or cold water full strength. Can be used a window cleaner a very low strengths. Also, it works well cleaning up the little mess your Pet can leave you as it eliminates the odors. Also, it works well in the carpet Cleaner, leaving its clean Orange smell. Think of the cost of all those cleaning products, its cost is much less than you would pay thought the year for them. It works for almost every cleaning job in the home and costs less.

First let me say, this stuff smells great. I love how my kitchen is so fresh after a good scrubbing with this liquid gold. I soak my hood filters in a strong solution of this and hot water, reducing my cleaning time by more than half. I used to scrub them with Dawn but it never removed all the build up. I don't stay on top of that job as much as I should but this makes it easier. I can get 80% clean by just soaking and rinsing with the faucet hose, then pop them in the dishwasher to finish them off. Easy.
I also use Zep Citrus on the exterior of the commercial hood where a combination of dust and grease seem to accumulate. There isn't a surface of my house that hasn't had a good rub down with Zep. I love it
