I know this might be a little unusual with this type of cleaner, but I wanted to experiment. We are trying to fix up a car to sell and the hood had disgusting, thick oil and dirt. I thought that we’d have a huge task on our hands with cleaning the hood. Who wants to see an oily, white car when considering the purchase? This would be a complete turnoff for myself personally.
There are other areas on the vehicle that needs cleaned, but I wanted to try the hood first. I was racing against the clock with daylight. Grabbing a roll of paper towels and a bottle of Soft Scrub advanced surface gel, I went outside and looked at the vehicle. In all honesty, I had my doubts that this would work. Have you ever tried removing oil from any surfaces? The bottle mentions Granite, Stainless steel, Glass cook tops (my next chore to tackle!), and Marble. That didn’t matter much to me as I am always looking for new ways to use products. The more the product can stretch, the more I could save money.
I want to apologize for the photo quality. The sun was glaring and I couldn’t get a decent view in the screen. As you can see from the picture, I poured the gel around over the oily spots. I hope that you can see the gel from the picture. The gel is clear and has a thick consistency. I let the gel sit for a few minutes before trying to wipe/scrub it clean. The great thing about this gel is that you don’t have to use water! Just use a sponge, rag, or paper towels.
Take a look at this photograph. I decided to take a photo of the experiment to compare the sides of the hood. Notice the difference between the oily substance vs. the cleaner side? YES!! This Soft Scrub Advanced Surface cleaner was doing the job.
Here is the final photo of the hood once I was finished. I do see a few spots that I missed and will tackle those another time. I’m still impressed with how well this product worked. I didn’t have to apply much pressure with the paper towels in most spots. It came off fairly easy. Once the gel was removed, I went over the hood once more with dry paper towels. It brought out a nice shine, we were able to see our reflection.
