VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
Please note:
SPILLCLEAN comes in two forms "Concentrate" and "Original Formula." SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] is 30% Active Ingredients and 70% Water while SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] is 10% Active Ingredients and 90% Water.

SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] and SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] are for on land and surface use only. They should not be used around or near bodies of water when there is a reasonable chance of mixing in with water. Once the contaminant/SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] solution mixes with the body of water, "control" of the contaminant will be lost since SPILLCLEAN is water soluble.

SPILLCLEAN is a formula designed to solubilize and emulsify oil and oil-type products such as motor oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, and transmission fluid. When such products are accidentally spilled and need to be cleaned up from hard surfaces such as streets and driveways, SPILLCLEAN is an effective material to use. Being a surfactant-type material, SPILLCLEAN allows the spilled contaminant to be emulsified and then lifted and separated from the hard surface. The resulting spill/contaminant can then be picked up, vacuumed up, or flushed with water, all in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations.

1. Application Method:
SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] 30% Active Ingredients and 70% Water – squeeze product directly around outside perimeter of oil/gasoline/antifreeze spill using squeeze bottle container. This process is designed to "contain" the contaminant and keep if from migrating down a hard surface like a city street, parking lot, or garage floor. SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] is more viscous than oil/gasoline, and will "hold" the contaminant in place. Once the contaminant is contained, the user can apply SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] over the "body" of the contaminant if the spill is large (over 2 gallons). If the spill is small (less than 2 gallons), the user can apply either SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] or SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] to the "body" of the contaminant spill. Using a broom or broom-like applicator, sweep SPILLCLEAN in with the contaminant until thoroughly blended in place. The original bright red color of SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] and SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] will dissipate when it is thoroughly mixed with the contaminant.

SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] 10% Active Ingredients and 90% Water – apply over the "body" of the contaminant if the spill is large (over 2 gallons). If the spill is small (less than 2 gallons), the user can apply SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] or SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] to the "body" of the contaminant spill. SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] is designed to "attach" to a contaminant and remove it from a hard surface like a city street, parking lot, or garage floor. It is recommended to be used on any size contaminant spill, large or small. This product is designed to penetrate into the surface pores and molecularly "attach" with the contaminant, thus making the contaminant "water soluble." The contaminant can be removed from the pores (of the asphalt, concrete, epoxy surface, etc.) with a 60psi water supply. The user can then dispose of the resulting mixture according to regulations. This product can be applied using a vast number of different applicators, especially with regard to firefighting equipment. Using a broom or broom-like applicator, sweep SPILLCLEAN in with the contaminant until thoroughly blended in place. The original bright red color of SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] and SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] will dissipate when it is thoroughly mixed with the contaminant.

When SPILLCLEAN’S bright red color has dissipated (upon mixing) with the contaminant, it can be wiped clean with a rag or wet-vacuumed, collected, and disposed of according to EPA, federal, state, and local regulations. Additionally, a dry sorbent may be applied to the resulting SPILLCLEAN/contaminant/water mixture, shoveled up and disposed of according to applicable regulations.

2. Concentration/Application Rate:
For Surface and Land Application Only:
SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] 30% Active Ingredients and 70% Water – for spills less than 2 gallons squeeze a one-half inch ribbon of straight product around the perimeter of the oil/gasoline spill, followed by an "X" pattern over the body of the spill. For spills greater than 2 gallons squeeze a one-half inch ribbon of straight product around the perimeter of the oil/gasoline spill. The general purpose of SPILLCLEAN ["Concentrate"] is to "contain" the contaminant from migrating, and therefore should not be diluted with water during application.
SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] 10% Active Ingredients and 90% Water – concentration rate is based on equipment used and disposal method. Typical usage will be (0 to 100 parts water) plus 1 part SPILLCLEAN ["Original Formula"] all applied to 1 part contaminant (oil/gasoline spill).
The resulting mixture of SPILLCLEAN and oil must be disposed of in accordance with EPA, federal, state, and local agencies that regulate disposal of contaminant. The resulting SPILLCLEAN contaminant mixture should be wet-vacuumed up and placed in a proper container and disposed.
