Product Overview

Easily remove concrete from your tools and equipment with Mean Klean 22 oz. Concrete & Mortar Dissolver. The advanced liquid formula dissolves and physically breaks down concrete by attacking the Portland cement, eventually reducing it to mush that is easy to clean off with a hose or pressure sprayer. Mean Klean is the non-fuming, eco-friendly alternative to harsh cleaning acids and etching compounds. Allow Mean Klean to dwell (keep the concrete moist with product) until concrete has dissolved. Some applications may take longer than others. Do not allow Mean Klean to dry prematurely to ensure constant saturation of material.
  • Dissolves and removes concrete, mortar, stucco or grout for a cleaner surface
  • Commonly used by ready mix concrete companies, pre-cast concrete companies, masons, concrete and paving contractors, tool and equipment rental yards, and concrete block manufacturers
  • Non-acid formula contains no muriatic (HCl), sulphuric or phosphoric acid
  • Non-fuming, non-toxic, 100% biodegradable formula is safe to use both indoors and outdoors without the need for respirators or protective clothing

Mean Clean was a great alternative to muriatic acid in cleaning my newly redone front steps. It was easy to use and gave me the results I was looking for. It was necessary to repeat the applications on some mortar spots. I followed the directions by painting Mean Clean with a paint brush and allowing the solution to sit for about 10 minutes before washing it off with a hose. As soon as I applied it, it began bubbling and turning white, so I knew it was working. I was also pleased with how relatively little of the solution was required. I did my entire front steps and about half of the bottle was left.

BEWARE! This product will melt and ruin chrome trim and plastic parts on a vehicle. It dissolved the concrete splashes off my truck, but did probably $500 in damage to the chrome bumper and plastic around it. DO NOT USE ON A VEHICLE.

    It does more than the label specifies
    The label instructions recommend this product be sprayed onto surface cement. And I'm sure it works just fine in that application. I'm using this product in a slightly unorthodox manner. My project involves removing cement bedding from imported glass tiles so they can be reused in the building's renovation. I remove as much of the bedding as possible, wash and dry the tile, then soak them for 4-18 hours in a bath of Mean Klean. The tile is then rinsed and dried. At that point, most of the tile are free of cement.

    Best solution yet to help remove dried mortar/cement from metal surfaces.. Had residue on aluminum, sparyed as directed, waited and pretty much hosed it off--there were a few spots that needed a coarse sponge and some needed a little help from a scaper--most though washed right off--very good product!

    It really works!
    I had some spatter of quick setting concrete with additives to remove from stainless steel and powder coated rolled steel. After reading all of the reviews, this seemed to be the best product to use. Spatter was ~1/8 inch thick in places, sprayed with this product., and it foamed briefly, then the concrete came off with just a plastic scraper and paper towels! Good stuff.
