More about Pensselipesu - Tool Cleaner



Use the detergent in accordance with the instructions on the label

  • Protect yourself and surfaces you do not intend to wash (including windows, plants etc.) against splashes.

  • If the surface has badly ingrained dirt, use a brush or similar non-scratching tools.

  • The detergent must not be left to dry on, so avoid using it in direct sunlight.

  • After washing, rinse the detergent off the surfaces thoroughly.

  • Leave surface to dry before applying a surface treatment.

  • Test the solution on an out-of-way patch to determine the time it needs to take effect and to ensure you have the right strength of solution.

  • The amount of detergent used will depend on the cleaning requirement.

Maalipesu (Cleaning Agent)

Walls, floors, furniture, doors, building boards, boats, etc.

Cleans unpainted surfaces by removing dirt, grease, oil, wax etc. Also suitable for pre-treatment of hard and glossy paint surfaces prior to painting. Undiluted Maalipesu cleans the surface and generates a matt finish that improves adhesion of the new paint coat.

 

Latex and other matt paint surfaces can be pre-treated with diluted Maalipesu (1 part Maalipesu, 10 parts water or 1 part Maalipesu, 5 parts water). 

Maalipesu is especially suitable for cleaning very dirty surfaces, where strong dissolving power is needed without the adverse effects of solvents. Maalipesu is not recommended for washing a metal roof or used directly on unpainted galvanized surface.
