What is the best overall car wash product to use?

Depending on whether your car wash system is brush or brushless, the #030 CrystalClean Vehicle Wash is the best product choice for brush or hand wash systems - not designed for brushless car wash systems. It is high foaming, green in color and has a light apple scent. Contains coconut oil which helps lubricate the "brushes" and prevent scratching.

For brushless systems, we have three alternatives: #160 Typhoon Auto/Truck/Trailer Wash is a good quality product which dilutes up to 64:1; followed by the better #161 Typhoon Ultra Auto/Truck/Trailer Wash, which is more concentrated and dilutes from 64:1 to 128:1; followed by the best #162 Typhoon Heavy-Duty Auto/Truck/Trailer Wash high foaming with oil separating capabilities, and a dilution from 100:1 to 175:1.

Is there a better way to apply the products to vehicles, to avoid streaking?

When applying a chemical solution to a vehicle (such as tractor-trailer, truck, automobile, travel trailer, etc.) always apply the chemical solution from the BOTTOM UP to the TOP AND rinse from the TOP DOWN to the bottom. This will do away with premature surface streaking by wetting as you go up. Chemicals applied from the top down have a dry surface to run down which will cause streaking. DO NOT ALLOW THE CHEMICAL SOLUTION TO DRY ON THE SURFACE AT ANY TIME. Always rinse the surface thoroughly with clean water.

How are the dilution ratios determined?

A 10:1 dilution is 10 parts water to one part product. There are so many different dilution ratios, depending on the product, it is best to refer to the Technical Data Sheet or the product label.

What is the latest product for aqueous parts washing?

Tomorrow's product #251 KleenSafe Solvent-Free Parts Cleaner with Corrosion Inhibitor is a proven top quality water-based parts cleaner that includes a corrosion inhibitor to prevent flash rusting. #254 CleanParts Solvent-Free OEM Parts Cleaner is an excellent cleaner for newly made parts to go through a vat system. It has a high dilution value for true economy in process use.

Which products can and cannot be used for cleaning ceramic floors?

Acid based products CANNOT be used for cleaning ceramic floors. They will eat away the ceramic coating on the tiles. We recommend either #250 ClearStream All-Purpose Solvent/VOC-Free Cleaner/Degreaser, #252 Industrial ClearStream Solvent/VOC-Free Cleaner/Degreaser, or #041 Non-Butyl Industrial Cleaner/Degreaser.

Do some Tomorrow products freeze and should this be a storage issue?

Different products carry variable freeze points from 32 degrees to -76 degrees. We recommend on our label that all surfactant cleaners be stored to prevent freezing.
