Workshops tend to be covered with grease and oil and whilst this is to be expected, it’s important to know how to properly clean your workshop in order to keep your equipment in top notch condition. Tools like hammers, screwdrivers, chisels, blades and wrenches can quickly accumulate dirt over time, which can affect their performance and worsen their condition over time. Instead of spending extra money replacing your tools, it’s better to keep them well maintained so you can always rely on your workshop equipment when you need it most.
The best way to approach tool maintenance is to choose the right cleaning agent for the job. Warm water and soap may be enough for a light touch up, but if you want to get serious about looking after your workshop tools, then you will need a much stronger and more powerful degreaser such as Multisolve.
Finding the Right Degreaser
Multisolve is a multi-purpose degreaser and cleaner from the same creators that brought you CT1, the Snag List Eliminator. It is the safest cleaning solution because it does not harm you as the user or the base material of the object. It is available in an aerosol can, which makes it easy to pick up and spray when needed. Having Multisolve in your workplace means that you can use it whenever you need to give your tools a quick spruce up.
Once the formulation gets to work, it will begin to lift the stains without using a burning motion. Traditional solvents tend to use a hot burning sensation to encourage detachment. However, Multisolve takes a much safer and far more effective approach to cleaning grease and other stains from workshop equipment. Instead of burning, it simply detaches the stain. Take a damp cloth and wipe away the residue, leaving behind a perfectly clean and smooth surface.
Advantages of Multisolve
Multisolve is 100% non-corrosive, which is one of its main advantages as a degreaser. It does not leave any trace of its presence behind, which means you can get back to work faster without having to spend more time rubbing off excess formulation from your tools. Multisolve is also used to clean and remove tar, wax, printing ink, sealants, adhesives and grime such as oil and grease. It can be used on most plastics, which makes it the best cleaner for tool handles and other plastic parts of your workshop equipment.
Multisolve is ideal for home-use as well as use in the workplace. You can use it in union with C-TEC’s other adhesives and sealants such as CT1, which will prep and prime base materials before applying new sealant on the area. Multisolve has been used for multiple trades, including plumbers, tilers, upholsterers, builders and joiners.
