In this short video Ben demonstrates the treatment of a stainless steel door handle to remove rust stains – caused by the stainless steel being contaminated with carbon steel –by applying Benz Oxy Cleanze.
Quick tip 1: It may seem strange to have to treat "stainless" steel for rust. This is because some stainless steel can be contaminated by carbon/mild steel. In the case of the stainless steel in the video it is probably 304, which by the sea is not a great idea. The manufacturer would have done better to use 316 or A4 grade stainless.
Quick tip 2: To find out how long rusted metal treated with Oxy Cleanze would remain free from rust following a treatment, we treated some rusty cast-iron downpipes and left them unpainted and exposed to the elements.
They remained clear of rust even several months later. (normally we would have painted them with a rust-protection paint, such as smooth Hammerite, following a treatment with Oxy Cleanze)
Quick tip 3: When using Oxy Cleanze always protect the surrounding surfaces and wear suitable PPE.

We use pencil jets in our brushes because we've found they don't clog or break as much as fan jets.
In the case of the Gardiner 45cm brush we use four of them. We turn the pump down so the flow rate is acceptable and does not produce much run-off.
Flow control at the pole is still critical however. Click the link on this page to learn about the solution we've found to be so successful ...

Some customers have wondered why we add IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol) to Benz Bio Cleanze. So we thought we'd clear this up and clarify the situation once and for all.

It's a free resource for people wanting to learn about the soft washing industry, to expand an existing business, or build a new business.
Soft washing reduces, or even eliminates, the need to use high-pressure washing.
Instead, once the build up of algae, lichen, fungus, moss and mould – the root causes of properties looking "dirty" – has been treated, the natural "self-cleansing" of sun, rain and wind removes the surface residue through time.
By educating the cleaning trade and public about soft washing we are helping develop an industry that offers sustainable treatments to clean and maintain exterior hard surfaces.
