          Answer This Question

          A:  Great question, Mike. Rust-Oleum Cleaner & Degreaser is intended for bare concrete surfaces only, so we would not recommend applying to metal. Instead, we would recommend using Krud Kutter Original Cleaner & Degreaser. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Krud-Kutter-Krud-Kutter-1-Quart-Liquid-Cleaner-Degreaser-for-Grease-on-Multisurfaces-KK326/203396788 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

            It worked well but not better than any other cleaner. Is advertised as bare cement cleaner so you expect it to penetrate and remove more soil and grease but it only works on the surface.

            We appreciate you reaching out and sharing your experience! If using Rust-Oleum Concrete Cleaner and Degreaser on extremely dirty or stained floors, an additional application may be needed. Make sure you are working the cleaner into the surface with a stiff bristle broom as well.

            I bought it for old oil stains on my driveway, it did not do anything. It probably works on other kind of grease.

            Thank you for sharing your experience with Rust-Oleum Cleaner and Degreaser. Please note for heavier stained areas, like oil staining, we recommend applying multiple applications for the best results.

            Terrible product
            Purchase this product April 9, 2020 to follow directions and it cleaned in certain spots and less others dark I have a sloped driveway and did a section at a time and brushed. Started at 6 AM in the cool weather in Southern California and it looks spotty only taking away certain spots there was no oil stains just a buildup of dirt. I hope it when it dries it looks better but as of now I would have to go buy more to see if it would work looking for a refund.

              Don't waste time and money
              I have been using Rust-Oleum products and I had really high hopes to start garage floor project with this. I applied the products as per the direction and it didn't even work a bit. didn't remove tire marks what they advertise, not oil stains and other stain. I got my hand and shoulder got sore scrubing the floor but no change. not I can't trust epoxy which I was originally going to purchase. Had bad experience at customer service at store as well.

                  Overall is did a good job cleaning. I used it to prep for the rustoleum rocksolid garage floor epoxy coating. I ended up having about 5 or six areas that still had a little greasey area after scrubbing and cleaning diligently. It caused the epoxy flooring to show some defects in those areas know as "fisheyes". Basically little holes in the epoxy covering where it would not coat the floor. The areas looked clean to the eye and had no obvious greasey look. If prepping for epoxy floor paint like the rocksolid kit, I recommend after cleaning and scrubbing with this kit, and after the acid etch, to re-wet the floor lightly and look for any areas were the water seems to form droplets or where the water seems to retract from a spot. Treat that spot for more degreasing and rinse super well.

                  Just used it today and followed the instructions to the letter! I actually did two applications of cleaner and scrubbed vigorously with a very stiff brush both times. Then I rinsed with my pressure washer. I expected the cleaner suds that were generated would be very dirty as it lifted the stain from the floor. Not so. Most of the suds were white. This product didn't affect the tire mark at all. It's still there in all it's glory.

                  Let's see what we can figure out Bill! The process that causes tires to leave black marks on your floor is called plasticizer migration. Plasticizers are a combination of polymer compounds and other chemicals that are used in the tire industry to create a more flexible tire. When a tire heats up from driving, these plasticizers relax and leach out of the tire. Generally the easiest way to remove these marks is to soak the area for a few minutes with a good cleaner like Rust-Oleum Cleaner Degreaser. After it has soaked use a semi stiff nylon brush to scrub the tire marks.
