#266 Citrol Citrus Cleaner & Industrial Degreaser

Citrol is a safe, biodegradable degreaser with astonishing cleaning power. 


Fifteen seconds after pouring-and without rubbing-Citrol's powerful ingredients began to dissolve and lift the grease. Within one minute, the lubricant and grease began flowing down the (disconnected) drain. The competitor's did nothing, even when rubbed with a shop towel.
