Shirt Laundry / Wet-Cleaning


Bio-degradable Degreasing Solvent

1. Solar-Solv is a “readily bio-degradable” solvent product used in conjunction with detergents to help emulsify and safely remove oily-based soils on all laundry classifications.

2. Solar-Solv is a non-flammable mixture that is NPE Free and demonstrates low residual solvent odor in finished work.

3. Solar-Solv has excellent degreasing ability over a wide range of soils and fabric types. This product will provide time and labor savings by removing the most difficult oily stains in the first wash and reducing costly re-wash and dual-processing of heavy soiled garments.

Ideal for oil or grease stains on white and colored table linens, mineral oils on industrial uniforms, vegetable based oils on shirts and food service uniforms and for a degreasing bath for kitchen towels and aprons.

May be used at a 4 to 1 mix ratio for collars and cuffs or as a pre-spotter on fabrics. Test vivid colors initially on an unseen area of garment.
