    Super Degreaser as a APC?

    Hi guys,

    Cant find Megs APC around here locally, but can get the Super Degreaser....can I still use it like APC as long as I dilute it enough, say 10:1 or 20:1 or more? How should I use it on the engine? Is it safe on aluminum intakes, the paint inside the engine bay, hoses etc? And what procedure might be best? Thx very much

    For the Engine Bay I use it 4:1.
    I wet the engine bay down with water, then spray Super Degreaser
    Let it sit for a minute or two and agitate.
    Then rinse.

    I would not use it as an APC.
    You can buy APC at Auto Detailing Solutions.

    Don't use Super Degreaser as an All Purpose Cleaner, take the time to get the right product for the job.

    I would honestly just try and get some APC or APC Plus. You really cannot replace an All Purpose Cleaner for Super Degreaser. APC cleans interiors, engines, carpets, tires, wheelwells very safely. Super Degreaser is a lot stronger and can stain paint even.

    The best thing to do is order a gallon of Meguiars All Purpose Cleaner and the compliant bottle and sprayer head.

    cant really replace APC, and when you get it you will be very glad you did with all the multiple things you can do with it

    Are you comfortable ordering online? A lot of members (including myself) buy APC or APC+ from a website called www.AutoDetailingSolutions.com

    The prices are very fair, the service is great, and Rick (owner) ships it out ASAP.

    Ok Megs APC it is then, thx guys. Ive posted another thread asking does anyone know any specific dealers around my area that carry it. Ive tried the store/product locator page but those places only carry waxes and quik detailers etc. Any Ideas how to track APC down around here(Middletown Ohio, 45042)?? I would order but im real strapped for time, this weekend would be perfect if i could find some. Thx again.
