The cops were there due to a guy wanted on warrants or something. Funny cause I secured the entire gas station area with caution tape. With the 5 police cars and the caution tape it gave the appearance of a major crime scene. To add to the hysteria, the CHP helicopter was flying right over the location doing circles as the highway was right next to the station. People driving by thought someone was killed.

EBC dwell was about 10 minutes. No agitation just sprayed it with a pump up and let it sit. Surface clean and rinse. Water temp was at 160.

Wow that looks great... That EBC must be some great stuff!

We have the EBC from Carlos that we bought from an East Coast Distributor. Bought 10 gallons last year and we have about 2 left. It's an Environmentally decent product to add to your arsenal. You can up sell it to your customers as a green product. Where still using some harsh products but I would most definitely recommend EBC to anyone who ask.

Well...if this is considered decent then we will take it as a compliment!

We still clean our Houses with our "Chlorine Bath solution" which would not be considered the best thing for the environment http://greenanswers.com/q/12734/pollution-toxins/chlorine-bad-environment where for the type work you do EBC is excellent for & also works very well on different types of cleaning jobs.

Maybe I should have rephrased my post differently earlier because I didn't want it to seem like I was saying something negative.

Maybe this makes it clearer.

I'm not a big believer in "Green" products as far as results but EBC has proven that some green products actually do work and they work well. Also if someone is fortunate enough to find a product that works as well as EBC does then they can also market that with there business as being an Environmentally friendly(Green) type business as well.

There are cleaners that are better than even mine detergent out there on the market. The problem is that these " Better" detergents are not environmentally correct and that they are becoming illegal to use in more and more states as the months go by.

We do have EBC in our family of chemicals. It is a very good chemical for a general detergent in my opinion. Sorta of a one stop shop chemical. The problem is the pricing of 135 dollars for 5 gallons. Sure you can dilute it, but then the strength maybe diluted as well.

EBC is environmental correct chemical and can be used in every state as far as I know. ( Check with your local POTW or AHJ's to confirm )

Someone called me and asked if I would use Carlos Chemical.....Yes I would I said, that is... when my chemicals that I currently use was unavailable. I do keep a few gallons just in case we clean something other that Parking Garages that our client " As a Favor" would request us to clean. Projects where my chemicals would be at a disadvantage or may be too strong and possibly take the paint off if it was a petroleum product.... If that were the case, then I would have Carlos Chemical in reserve.

In other words, I think having more then one chemical in your family of cleaners is the best thing to have. NOT 1 chemical has all the answers. But if there was one chemical that came close to doing it all, I would pick Carlos EBC at $135.00 per 5 gallons which may possibly be diluted for better pricing.

John T. I'm actually using it for hoods as a little kick to the sh solution that I have. It is a great product. Wish it was a bit cheaper then ~$135. Speaking of 2 gal left I need to reorder. :)

EBC is definitely a good product. It seems to handle most types of cleaning applications very well. We used it for vinyl house cleaning,degreasing oils stains and also a Supermodel's(our customer) tennis court fence. She wanted something that was environmentally safe.

The bottom line to me is you pay more for a Green Product and if it works then it most definitely can be worth the added expense especially if you market it as such.

Also EBC can be diluted pretty far down for most applications so it's not really expensive when you think about it. The only time we used it at full at full strength was when we were degreasing some oil stains in a parking garage.

I would give Carlos a thumbs up on his EBC product and also if someone was to ask I would also say it's the best green product we used to date.
