Customer Questions & Answers

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 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stuff I've ever used for degreasing! Used is stuff to clean my engine block for engine build. Soaked my pistons in the solution for about 5 minutes and used a tooth brush to get grime off. Pistons looked brand new after and a few I didn't even have to brush off. Works amazing!

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 also works great for slow drains Plumber recommended this to me over other products like draino for my backed up kitchen sink. Works terrific in cutting down the grease in your drains and makes everything run smooth. Used in bathroom sink as well and to my surprise fixed a slow draining sink there as well. Won't harm your pipes like the other drain cleaners on the market, just be sure to get it started with just the concentrate if your drain is very slow.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Have to agree with with John in his review. Even cuts easily thru baked on food on a glass top stove, with no scraping. It's a must have for those extra tough jobs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new favorite degreaser! Went to Home Depot to purchase another brand of purple degreaser, it was not on the shelves. Having good results with other Zep purchases, we decided to try the Purple Degreaser. Used this on an engine compartment of a car that is getting the engine bay painted, so we needed great results. Zep delivered! Sprayed it on, waited a minute, went back with a stiff brush and the years of grime washed off. A few problem areas needed a second application. We have a new favorite, it is a terrific product.

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.
