Lubricant & Hydraulic Fluid Stains
Working in your garage or workshop with oil, grease, other lubricants and hydraulic fluids often means dealing with heavy staining.
If you work on your own car, truck, motorcycle, or other machinery, you probably know that the transmission, power steering system, and power brakes all require hydraulic fluids, which is a very specific type of lubricant. Other lubricants include machine oils, spindle oils, way lubricants, industrial gear oils, sewing machine oil, and bicycle chain oils.
Common Uses of Lubricants & Hydraulic Fluids
Lubricants and hydraulic fluids are also used in a variety of machines, including engines, tractors, excavators, forklifts, backhoes, bulldozers, trucks, and other industrial machinery. Most aircraft flight control systems also require hydraulic fluid. These fluids contain numerous chemical compounds, including polyalphaolefins, phosphate esters, and mineral oil.
All of these products are thick and greasy, and can leave permanent stains. Cleaning up any lubricant should be done as soon as possible, preferably while the product has not yet dried. Care needs to be taken with hydraulic oil in particular - it is very harsh on your skin, and the environment. If you have gotten hydraulic fluid on yourself, remove the soiled clothing and clean it off your skin before worrying about your clothes or whatever else it may have gotten on.
Then, reach for Goof Off® Heavy Duty Spot Remover & Degreaser, the miracle stain remover that gets out the tough stuff, including grease, motor oil and the many forms of lubricants and hydraulic fluids commonly found in shops, garages and workshops. The solvent in Goof Off® actually dissolves the oil. Use Goof Off® to remove soils from clothes, carpet, upholstery, tools, countertops, shelves, vehicles, etc., without harming the underlying surface, when used as directed. Blot off any excess liquid and spray with Goof Off®, allowing it to penetrate the soiled area for a few minutes. (Always read the directions on the label, and test for color fastness on an inconspicuous area of the garment first.)
If you need to clean lubricants or hydraulic fluids from clothing or any other surface, you need a product with a powerful degreaser that will not harm surfaces. Fortunately - help is at hand! Goof Off® gets the tough stuff that ordinary cleaners cannot, and works like magic on oil, grease, lubricants and hydraulic fluids.
