Pros: best degreaser/cleaner, safe to use on many surface
Cons: can't find in store
"This thing is great. I try all kinds of cleaner and they always saying how well it cleans and it turns out disappointing. This thing on the other hand is the best of the other ones I tried so far. So I've been looking for this thing all over the place, and costco store never seem to have them anymore. Finally I just have to order this thing onlone even though I have to order 4 gallons of it. Each gallon last me a year so I probably won't have to buy this thing again for another 4 years."
"I have try most cleaners (Simply Green, Grease Lightning and many others). This is the best cleaner on the market. My wife and I used it on getting baby formula out of the clothing when our children were infants. This product was the only one that was able to get clothing clean on the first try. The cleaner is very safe for laundry. I wish that our local Costco would carry it again. We use about 3 gallons a year so I will buy the 4 gallon case when we run out."
"Without a doubt this is the best laundry cleaner...removes spots of whatever, grease etc by just adding to your washer along with whatever detergent you may use. I don't even spot clean grease on my husband's work pants....it's like a miracle...and no scrubbing involved !"
"You Know you have a great product here. Everyone that uses it-loves it! Now why would you not retain it in the majority of your warehouses in a reasonable size we all use? Return it to all locations, gallon with spray bottles. Great Product!"
"I was like some the other reviewers, in regards to using Simple Green as my all around cleaning agent, however Oil Eater far exceeded my expectations. I have yet to find anything that it can't clean. I had a pair of blue jeans with grease stains that I've tried to clean with SG, bleach, and stain a stick but nothing worked. I thought the stain was set in but I try OE before washing and to my surprise it not only removed the stain but my jeans completely looked cleaner.
It's not the cheapest product but it's the best. I've tried diluted 50/50 with water and it works fine for most cleanups, however I keep a bottle full strength for the tough stains."
Pros: great to clean wheel break dust, cleans dried bugs from bumper grill & windshield, has 100s of uses.
"I have been using this product for almost 15 years. I use it to clean everything from wheel brake dust to bugs on the bumper, etc. This product has been used on BMWs and Buick's. It has NEVER hurt the paint or the finish, and is easy to use. Use common sense, don't leave it on more that 10 minutes.It's also good in the shower and shines the chrome in the bathroom. Oh, and it's also great to de-grease parts and garage floors. It comes with dilution instructions. I recommend it to all my friends and clients. Buy It and use it often. Tell everyone else."
"Oil Eaters has been around for a long time. Costco use to sell a gallon in the store with a oil eater 16oz bottle. Now they just sell 4-1gal jugs in the web, but I am glad they just sell it. It is by far the BEST driveway cleaner you can buy. It does not have any acid in it, so it safe to go into the storm drains from washing a driveway. Also I mix it 1 part Oil Easter and 4 parts water to made a great carpet cleaner."
Cons: don't love the way it smells., can't be used on glass
"I use this product in the kitchen for the stove, pots, vent fans, ceiling fan, cabinets and anything else that gets greasy. For laundry it takes out spots like nothing else - even old grease spots. I use it on my floors for heel marks, on the deck for patio furniture and the grill, on the tiles in the shower, in the power washer to clean the driveway, stone steps and for anything else that is dirty!!!"
"I agree with all of the reviews (my son is a mechanic). Oil Eaters is unbelieivable
The greatest use ever is in a relatives's beauty shop. I constantly get black permanent hair dye as well as other colors on my clothes. One quick spray on my clothes and when I get home into the wash and voila "no stain.""
"I agree with what everyone else has said. This stuff is great. When I could not get in the store I tried Simply Green and it does not half as good as Oil Eater. It would be great if they would bring it back to the store. I guess I will have to buy 4 gallons and see if my neighbor would like to split it with me."
"We use this product for cleaning everything from small oil spills to heavy equipment it is great stuff. We do recommend diluting it 5:1 for use on asphalt. We have used it for years and when it disappeared from Costco shelves we decided to order it on line."
"i have been using this degreaser for so many years,and very satisfy with this product and been using it for house cleaning ,car cleaning , engine washing ,oil driped cleaning ,and many other things.and i hope costco warehouse bring it back"
"Finally a product that actually works! Have tried many products for outdoor kitchen/grill area and this is the first one that actually worked. All the reviews are right on - it is truly a great product! Highly recommend it."
"I own an auto repair shop. We use oil eater for cleaning oil off the floor as well as getting oil and grease off engine when we work on them. I've even used it to take grease out of clothing i got grease onto."
"This is the best degreaser I have ever used! It worked as a pre laundy cleaner better than any I've ever used. I'm really bummed I can't buy it in a Portland Oregon store anymore. Please bring it back."
