GW Brand No Rinse Floor Cleaner


An amazing non-butyl degreaser that removes petroleum, animal, vegetable oils and greases better than any other product we have found. This total detergent system emulsifies and holds oily soil in suspension for easy cleaning. It has controlled foam for easy rinsing and an odor counteractant for professional deodorizing.

The most aggressive floor finish stripper you will find. When diluted with lukewarm water, the solution will break up and penetrate the heaviest, burnished finish build ups. This product needs to be used in well ventilated areas.
