    Re: Britemax remax SIO2 Spray sealant

    Iíve never experienced anything of that nature. You absolutely do not need to wait 2-3 minutes. It does work instantly. Spray it on a brown tire, it starts reacting instantly. Any degreaser needs to be rinsed from carpet. 4:1 is on the weaker end of recommended dilution for interior. As far as value, thatís up to the end user, but I find grime out the best degreaser Iíve ever used.

    If I used Megs Super Degreaser @4:1 most people would call me crazy, would they not? The label says 20-40% dilution for interiors. 4:1 is 20%... I can only imagine what a nightmare it would be in regards to the stickiness at 2:1.

    As far as cleaning tires, I honestly do not see a difference between what this does straight vs. Super Degreaser @4:1. Unless youíre the type that never takes a brush to your tires? And even using it that way [no scrub] it doesnít leave them completely clean.

    It will definitely clean tires as good or better undiluted compared to SD @ 4:1. I always use a brush on tires. Can you use SD on leather and interior plastics safely? No. Grimeout at 2:1 on the same? Yes. I repeat, any degreaser NEEDS to be rinsed from carpet. If value is your main concern, grime out may not be for you. It works, however. It doesnít get raved reviews for no reason. Youíre basing your opinion on carpet cleaning, which would be the last place Iíd reach for grimeout. Try it on filthy wheels, tires, fender wells, grimy paint, etc... Cuts through it like butter when used undiluted. Cleans leather very well, too.

    To say it can clean tires as good or better than D108 doesnít earn many points.. Weíre talking about undiluted vs. 4:1 + the undiluted product costs way more to begin with.

    You say it ďcleans leather very well tooĒ But at the same time you say ďcleaning carpet, which would be the last place Iíd reach for GrimeoutĒ

    You think of reaching for a degreaser when it comes to cleaning leather? I donít. Carpet, now thatís not as delicate so sure Iíd think of using this product.

    Nowhere on the label of BriteMax Grimeout does it say anything about cleaning leather.

    I tested the pH of grimeout vs the ďsafeĒ optimum power clean and theyíre nearly identical. Grimeout is definitely safe on leather. Also, you can ďrinseĒ leather a hell of a lot easier with a damp towel. Try rinsing carpet with that. They will of course recommend their interior cleaner for leather, but grimeout is just fine.

    For wheels I prefer D140@4:1. You cannot tell me this is somehow better at cleaning wheels than Wheel Brightener.

    Tires I prefer D108@4:1. Does the same job and does it at a much better value since I get 5 gallons worth for less than 1 gallon of Grimeout. The 1 thing that it does better at is the scent. Iíll give it that.

    Fender wells, grimy paint, etc. Megs D101 All Purpose Cleaner can do all that@10:1. Once again, much better value.

    I wanted to like this product and I held back any comments about it for a few weeks now... But itís given me nothing to rave about and instead left me very unimpressed.

    Youíre basing your opinion on value, not its effectiveness. Itís VERY effective. More than youíre giving it credit for, or comparing it against. Did you not know the recommended dilutions before buying it?

    My opinion isnít what it is because Iím somehow sour about overpaying... Iím willing to pay a premium for anything thatís worth it or makes things easier vs. lesser priced product, which is exactly what I was hoping for when I decided to try Grimeout. I had high hopes that it could maybe replace the need to buy not only Super Degreaser, but also D101. [D101 deserves an apology for me even thinking that]

    My cheapo has nothing to do with my opinion. Did you not see my the after pics of my floormatt? Even the cheap degreaser/APC from the 99 cents store could do better than that! Lol. [and thatís actually true, because LATA would make quik work of that floormatt]

    Ya Really! A sealant by definition is a synthetic wax. This is a fact

    I wonder what the difference is between the miquiars and the grime out as far as hazardous chemicals? Im' only wondering becuase I know the meguiars has been around a long time, not sure about results
