Wet Cleaning Usage Instructions

Pre-Spotter 2001 - Dilute 50/50 with water and apply with a spotting brush. Works as an all-purpose citrus base spotter on all leather and suede garments, shoes, and purses.

Wet-Side Booster - A highly concentrated anionic/nonionic wet side detergent with optical brighteners. Excellent for heavy grease and oil removal (collars & cuffs) when diluted 1-9 and used as a pre-spotter. May also be used as a booster for heavily soiled garments in the wash load. Add 1oz per load along with the Solo-Clean. Very effective at 1oz. per load as a sole detergent for washing vinyl, ultra suede, polyurethanes, and borganas.

Geep - Leather and suede safe paint, oil, and grease remover. First you must dampen the spotted area with Pre-Spotter 2001 and apply Geep only to the affected area. With a brush or a spotting bone gently work the stain. Since Geep is an oil base product you'll need to follow by flushing out the Geep with Prespotter 2001. Can be used in wet cleaning or dry cleaning.

De-Ink - Leather and suede safe oil base ink remover. Apply and flush out using the same steps as for Geep. Can be used in wet cleaning or dry cleaning. Makes a great ink remover in textile cleaning as well.
