Here we are, ready for that highly-anticipated Friday evening time-clock punch, and all I can think about is how much time I wasted (and fumes I involuntarily inhaled) last weekend. Want to know how I spent last Sunday afternoon? Perched on the edge of my bathtub, spraying coat after coat of foaming shower cleaner onto a vintage (i.e. ancient and hopelessly crusty) heat register grate that was so disgusting that I had no choice but to give up trying to clean it with my vacuum’s brush attachment, and resort to chemical-based crud erosion instead.
The foaming bathroom cleaner got the job done after several applications and some waiting, but when I got back to work Monday only to meet Techspray® G3 Blue Shower Cleaner and Degreaser from NTE®, I couldn’t help but have a “where have you been all my life?” moment. This stuff is designed to do exactly what I was trying so hard to do: strip grease, grime and other gross stuff from metal without much need for scrubbing or other unpleasantness. Had I known about this magic potion, I could’ve taken a nap instead.
Okay, to tell the truth, this degreaser may be overkill for household use, but it’s perfect for cleaning everything from circuit boards to engine parts – in other words, things that have vital functions and can’t be sacrificed to soap and water or just any cleaning chemical. Just spray this solvent on, and let it do its thing. If you need to do any wiping or scrubbing, it won’t be much. Just think of it as Scrubbing Bubbles® for really important tech and mechanical stuff.
