Can this be used on a cars interior?

Asked by: Anonymous
Never tried it, but I would not. This product does have a strong smell that would probably linger for a long time.

Description of scent

The scent of this product is shown as "Mild. Ethereal" What exactly is an ethereal scent? What is this smell like compared to another product or scent?
Asked by: jpcookie
It smells like light duty acid, just like the acid I used when I worked at a commercial truck shop to clean extremely dirty truck engine bays and also to wash down steel before I painted it and also anything else like sanded truck cabs etc. before they were painted. It is strong stuff. Idk why they say not to use this stuff on aluminum but I do know the acid I used to use that smelled the same would oxidize aluminum taking away it's shine and turning it white.

128 oz. Industrial Purple Degreaser is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from takes off baked grease This degreaser was made to remove grease from auto parts and tools and unfinished concrete I used this to clean a stove top and oven that was in our rental and it looks new. I used a Zep sprayer to spray the entire stove top and let it sit for 5 minutes it made a foam that started to turn brown after a minute then used a rag to wipe off I have used a lot of degreasers over the years but this one works wonders and the stove looks new. I did a test on the back of a cookie sheet to show how it works. You can tell right away which side I sprayed and I did use a green pad when I rinsed it off but it was not really needed. Make sure you wear gloves.

Ding, ding, ding, probably my all time favorite regular purchase at Home Depot. This stuff really does work. I use it on just about everything... my grill gets bathed it in every few months and it sparkles. I've used it on scaly, grimy sinks and even on carpet stains - just make sure you dilute it and try it on an area to test. I've heard it's also safe to add to your regular load of laundry (I have not tried it). If something doesn't wipe off clean instantly just soak it for a little while or overnight.

I have a customer that cooks a LOT in his patio. He has a grill, range top, sink, basically an outdoor kitchen. I repainted his patio a year ago and he asked if i could clean it before family event this Easter. Below is a pic of the before and after. The before is after a quick pressure wash. It did no good due to all the grease from his cooking all year. I went to the local Home Depot and got some Zep Purple mixed in a 5 gal bucket. No real measure for ratio just pored in and filled with water, but if i were to guess i would due to the amount of grease 1 quart to a gallon, Using a stiff bristle brush brush cover the area and allow to work for a few minutes then scrub. Rinse and the after pic speaks for itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for many uses around the house and yard! Have used other Zep products before and have been happy with all of them,but this degreaser is a favorite. Have used it to clean our stainless steal grill and it works great. The grates were in pretty bad looking condition with all the grease buildup, so my husband placed them in a large pan and a solution of this degreaser and left them set over night. Used the pressure washer on them the next day and wow what a difference! We have used this to clean spots off the garage floor and it works very well. Last week I thought I would give it a try in the laundry when I washed the patio furniture covers just to see if it would give a deeper clean and desolve some of the stains on the seat cushions. It worked great, they look brighter and cleaner by far! It really cuts through all kinds of krud! Good product to have on hand~~

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing I haver ever seen to remove machinery to bare metal I'm using this product to strip the old grease, oxidized oil and layers of old dried coolant from a 50 year old machine tool for restoration. It is truly the best thing I have ever seen, and a soak in this stuff will do the job without even scrubbing the surface. It will also melt off the paint, primer, and fillers that were used under the paint, if used at full strength - which is the way I am using it. DO NOT use it for aluminum, bronze, brass. I think it will eat it, as it has Sodium Hydroxide as one of the main ingredients. I am using it on cast iron and steel, and where I can, I fully submerge the part and come back a few hours later to a perfectly stripped and clean (after washing with water) item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST degreaser sold to the public Our company cleans restaurant kitchen exhaust systems. This is the best degreaser we have ever used. Commercial products cost almost 10 times as much.Best for your money. Be careful it is so strong I don't recomend using it full strength.
Date published: 2012-04-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super strong I do commercial kitchen exhaust cleaning and this stuff works wonders for the heavy grease that has hardened. It very strong so a 1 gallon bottle will last a long time in a residential setting. Just be very careful at full strength. Wear gloves and use in ventilated area. I love the purple.
