Where can I get Perfect Solution cleaner degreaser?

Recommended Posts

I just read the 2014 thread on Upgrading Bearings - cleaning bearings vs replacing them-  and Perfect Solution cleaner degreaser was suggested.

 

Lowe's doesn't carry it.

Amazon doesn't carry it.

Google didn't help, unless I want to call a cleaning company in Wisconsin and order some over the phone.

 

www.induscoltd.com will sell me a one quart spray bottle for $6.38, but UPS ground shipping is $19.14, which includes a $5 per order 'handling fee'

 

A gallon is $13 or $14 and shipping is only a dollar or two more if anyone is interested. I don't think I need that much. I have a large case - a free case - of orange cleaner in the garage for the mowers and such.

 

Thanks for any leads, the stuff sounds useful.

Not sure where you can get Perfect Solution but I picked up 16 ounce bottle of Ardent Reel Kleen Cleaner for $ 14.99 delivered (Amazon Prime). The Ardent stuff works well for me for cleaning bearings.

I've been wondering this, too.  Nothing works as well.

Thanks for verifying the Rotunda source. If I could halfway hear on the phone I wouldn't mind calling so much.

This stuff sounds a lot like Simple Green, anyone know what it actually is?

Highly basic (pH) degreaser/cleanser.  Works like SS, but 10000x effective and quick.  I wear  gloves, as undiluted irritates my hands.  Cuts cleaning reel parts down to about 10 mins.  Also works great to degrease bearings before soaking in acetone.

Interesting, I have spent a lot of time using SG to degrease steel and Al pre-welding and it isn't very strong, even undiluted.  I might pick some Perfect Solution up then.

I was looking for it and have read that Lowe’s no longer carries it.

I travel past 6 Lowe's stores on a weekly basis. One of them still carries it and the others haven't had any for quite some time. No idea why. I got turned onto this stuff a couple years ago. It's good stuff.

Interesting, I haven’t bought it since late summer 17. Next time I’m in my local one I’ll check for you.

I go by 3 or 4 in the course of a week, so I'll check. Searching lowes.com gets this...

 

"This item is no longer available on Lowes.com"

 

I even searched the lowes site using a variety of zip codes from around the country and got nothing.

Try CFC Electronic Cleaner.  Removes grease really, really fast, evaporates fast and leaves no residue.  I put my bearings in a tiny food wire strainer, step outside and blow out the bearing with the red tube inserted.  A short rinse in lighter fluid, blow them out and they are ready to go.  This stuff will blow grease out of a frame bearing in seconds.  Buy mine at Walmart.  It is also nice to use on boat electronic connections.

A buddy was telling me Boca Bearings sells a soak for bearing cleaning. They have a good reputation that might be something to look into??? 

 

I tried using simple green once in my ultrasonic, idk the bearings didn’t feel right. Had to re soak em in alcohol to free em up. Felt like it made them sticky or something??? This was before Perfect solution came around.

Run them through the PS in the ultrasonic cleaner. Then put them in a final bath of acetone in a baby food jar in the ultrasonic cleaner to clean anything left over. Blow them dry /w compressed air , hit them /w a hair dryer or let them sit. You'll be surprised how long it actually takes for them to completely dry.

It's all over their FB page.  Tons of complaints about where to get it, shipping costs, etc.

Only $19.14 to ship one $6.38 quart to Virginia. What a deal, only $25 and change for one spray bottle.
