Purple Power

This stuff kicks simple green's ass all day up and down the street. Decided to clean the bay up some in the eg, didn't think it was gonna get it like i wanted it to. But the stuff did awesome on the bay. It cleaned up 18yr old grime like it was nothing. Here's pics

before...


(the hood was MUCH worse than this)
the left side is a quick spray of purple power then a rinse off with the hose. the right side shows purple power with some scrubbing...


and the hood all done...


and the bay after (plastic pieces armor all was used on)...

you can also buy it at Lowes Home Improvement as well. Just go to the cleaning section.

Simple Green ain't weak! You just gotta mix it right.

Purple Power is literally BETTER than Simple Green. SG is great for light grease and the like but Purple Power cleans 100% better when used on carbon deposits and tough oil deposit. Wouldn't think twice about using Simple Green to do Purple Power's job!! All day.....

WhatEVER...get OUTTA here. LOL I've never had a situation where SG wouldn't clean stuff. But I've also never used Purple Power. I guess I will give it a try sometime.

It's mostly made of salt compounds. Too bad that doesn't rinse out of engines well. Be interesting to see if it works for a substitute of seafoam, or a mixture.

Purple Power shouldn't sit for any amount of time as it will discolor soft metal (aluminum heads). I have used it to clean all kinds of metal and find that it MUST be rinsed thoroughly or else it will stain.

I just use a pressure washer and a straight up, 100% concentration mixture of Simple Green. Gets the job done with no scrubbing. I'm sure Purple Power would work this way as well.

yeah i just dont have a pressure washer lol. it does say not to use on painted surfaces, i think. but i haven't seen anything with the paint since i did it. it also took the sharpie off on the roof of my prelude. i've used it un diluted but only small amounts
