Yes

I am trying to get stains off the rough edges of pvc trim board and saw online this might be the only thing that works. Has anyone used it for that?

Answer

This is to clean dirt, grime, grease etc off of PVC pipe and fittings prior to cementing. The cleaner is a strong acetone. We have not tested it for this application so would suggest trying a small area first to make sure it does not effect the trim negatively.

This product is not intended to be used in that manner. It is designed to clean the surface of rigid pipe.

Is it ok to use this clear cleaner on PVC pipe then use purple primer.

Asked by DJ February 5, 2017

Answer

Cleaner is a good practice to use on old or dirty pipe but really not necessary for new pipe. Primer is important as part of the welding process to use right before the application of cement. Cleaner should never be used IN PLACE of Primer.

Answer

No, the purple dye is virtually impossible to be removed because its intended purpose is to stain the pipe and fitting surfaces as an identifier to show proper application steps were followed.

Will this product remove the ink from the pvc pipes?

This cleaner actually is Acetone (70-100%), so if Acetone can remove the ink then seems Clear Cleaner would remove the ink.

I’m not a plumber but I know a bit about plumbing. Used this cleaner to clean up old pvc that I accidentally broke. Plus it’s just good practice to clean every joint before priming and gluing to ensure great adherence and lasting seal. Can’t tell you if it’s the best but it certainly does the job well. It dries quick, gets everything off.

Great product
I use this stuff to clean up every pvc and cpvc joint before I glue it. Call me old school but it's just the way I was taught. I have not had any leaks in the 4 years I have been using this at my home. It's simple to use since it has the cleaning ball inside of it. It is low VOC. This product does meet my expectations and I don't have anything to dislike about it. Please hit the thumbs up button if this was helpful.

First time used this clear cleaner, it did work great specially when you are working on a pool plumbing system where the purple cleaner will show some residue that will be an eye soar. Very happy with the product, it dries out very fast ready for the glue. will continue to use it again highly recommended. One quick tip make sure the cap is very tight when you're done using otherwise it will leak if you tip it over.

This was great glue, but the brush on the inside was so large it was difficult to use. If it was on a bigger pipe it wouldn't of been a problem. Perhaps on your jar make sure people realize it is an extra large applicator.
