Interior APC

Evening all,

What the correct dilution ratio for Surfex HD for interior trim? I have been using it 10:1 sprayed directly on to microfiber cloth. Is this to strong a dilution as the trim is usually well maintained.


I have read that surfex HD is to strong a product to be used on interior trim?

I use it throughout the interior.

1:10 has been fine for me.
A lot of people will probably say a weaker mix is better though.

Wow thats a strong mix as Surfex is aggressive stuff, be careful at that ratio, personally I would never use Surfex in that manner, I would also not consider it an APC as technically its a waterbased degreaser

I've been using Koch Chemie Green Star for many things recently - including household carpet cleaning

I'm very impressed indeed

For the interior try at about 5%.

Andy.

Another one for using GS at 5% interior and 10% exterior. No need for anything stronger.

I’ll add 30-50ml to a snow foam lance occasionally to foam a minging car.

Slight hijack but if you’re using surfex or green star to clean the interior do you rinse after wiping down or just apply a dressing?

For a normal weekly clean, no need to rinse, just leave as is, or apply KC Top Star if I have the time.

If it’s a deep clean with lots of product and brushes etc. I’ll wipe up with a clean damp microfibre and leave to dry naturally. I won’t go over it again with another clean damp cloth.
