Not a bad price considering. Has anyone else tried it. How fast does it evaporate?

Zep has this 1 gallong auto parts cleaner. I gal will make 5 just add water. This is the strongest stuff Ive seen and it is Bio, Wear glves it will eat yer skin up and clea partsbest ive seen. It's like $15 a gallon at Home depote.
Clueman: I'd like to find out more about this stuff. Zep is a real old name in the auto trades, so it might be real good??
What have you tried to clean with it; like real old caked on stuff??

I need to change mine real soon.

We used Zep in our maintenance cribs, each major machining department had its own parts washer, maintenance bench, etc.

In an older established area, it might be cleaning parts that had been in the machine for years, so the grunge could be pretty deep. The stuff is good but not magic, if the grunge is deep enough time and elbow grease will be required.

Clueman, I edited 9 of your posts because 10 times of posting the same thing makes the thread extremely hard to read and very difficult to follow. I get the feeling it was just a computer glitch.


In a while, Chet.

Went to Home Depot to check out the Zep. Its got properties like oven cleaner. You will need to wear a respirator just as you should using solvents ,but this stuff will also burn your skin.

Looks like I'm back to Varsol.

I poured some into a metal container and it doesn't burn when applying a flame. If on a piece of wood it burns good.

I'll have to be careful I guess.

Being careful when out in the shop should almost be second nature, but I'll bet we all cut a corner or two now and then. I sliced my finger yesterday evening (not a bad slice) and I did it solely by rushing a "little project".

Stay safe.


In a while, Chet.
