The dilution rate varies with each variable

A.. What type of grease
B.. How thick is it
C. How old is it
Now a doorshut is a doorshut agreed but a 14 plate motor isnt going to need the same rate as a ten year old caked in graphite and white grease is it.
Third example dewaxing a motor.
What type of wax
How old
Hot or cold method.
Etc etc etc.
The data would just end up so confusing to people. Then you would get some weekend warrior totally disregard the five differnt ratios and go for the strongest.. Then start on you because the data says...... Etc etc
G101 is such a versatile all rounder with so many different uses that the data would just be impossible to collate, and if you did manage to collate it the list would be so long that people just wouldnt bother to search for it.
10-1.... 50-1.......100-1 there are your ratios if the weakest doesnt shift it go stronger.
:-). Ok Allen I think I have ascertained that you don't want such a document. Just thought it could save some people some time capitalising on others previous experiences. My offer is there if others do want it.

Im just pointing out some pitfalls that you havent thought of mate. Brilliant idea but on the practical side the document would run into thousands of pages wouldnt it.

No offense meant. I think the list shouldn't be too long. I don't think we need list every single different application.

Eg for car
Glass, engine, fabrics, seats, trim, paint, doors etc

Household
Floor tiles, wall tiles, wooden floors, lino, glass, ceramics etc

General
Fabrics

Thinking just enough info to give someone who as never used it an idea of what it can/can't do, a guide to dilution and sort of application.

Insect repellant. I love the way it knocks wasps and flys or any creepy crawly things down almost instantly. Use at 1.3 for a nice effect that causes flyers to kamikaze to the floor

Allen is correct in what he is saying. It is not an exact science as there are so many variables. Even water hardness plays a part. The label should give some indication. We would always suggest starting with something on the weaker side first and remember that G101 is a concentrated product so you will be amazed what it can shift at 1:30

Also, the more delicate the surface, the weaker solution you want to try first.

If in doubt call our Customer services team on 01543 481616 and we will be happy to help.

Uses for G101

Has anyone used this for removing oil stains on a driveway before/during pressure wash cleaning? If so, what ratio please?

Edit::
Wow didn’t think this would be such a revival of a thread. Sorry

Hi there, thank you for your message. For degreasing we recommend a ratio of 1:20 for hot and 1:8 for cold. Remember, as G101 is concentrated if unsure always start with a weaker dilution as you can always build up if necessary!
Kind regards

Thanks Jenni

Unfortunately the stones had not been sealed before, and the oil that had leaked into them had been there a very long time. As a result, nothing would remove the oil. I used G101 as far as neat in attempt to get it out, and while the surface was clean and free from oil, there was still discolouration to the driveway.

Still my go to product though for pretty much everything. However I’ve just had to make contact with my local rep as I used so much on the driveway that I need some more... awaiting a visit from him some day soon so I can browse everything else in his van

Thanks

Chris
