Ready To Use Formula – “RTU”

RTU is ready to apply, soak, and rinse. Ready to Use containers have an unlimited shelf life as long as you keep the product capped.

We suggest soaking for at least 15 minutes to allow the De-Oil-It solution to degrade the hydrocarbon contamination. The longer you wait the more complex chemical structures are disassembled into smaller, simpler, and far less toxic structures.

RTU formulated De-Oil-It is used for general residential cleaning, industrial/retail floor cleaning, pressure washing, engine “degreasing”, tire cleaning, shop uniform cleaning, and more.

We offer Ready-to-Use in 22oz, 1 gal, 2.5 gal, 5 gal, 55 gal, and 275 gal sizes.


Industrial Strength Concentrate – “ISC”

Industrial Strength Concentrate is preferred for stubborn or larger spills of oil, fuel, etc. In many cases, ISC will be more economical than RTU because you can dilute it to different ratios specific to the task at hand.

Use our dilution guide to add water in a ratio recommended for your application. ISC has an unlimited shelf life and the activated dilution is also unlimited as long as the container is capped.

We offer ISC in 5 gallons, 55 gallons, and 275-gallon sizes.


All De-Oil-It ingredients are on the FDA GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) list.

De-Oil-It does not contain any chemicals subject to reporting requirements under CERCLA, SARA, and California Proposition 65. CERCLA stands for the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, known also as Superfund. It was passed in 1980 in response to various alarming and decidedly unacceptable hazardous waste practices and management taking place in the 1970s. The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act SARA amended CERLA act of 1980 (CERCLA) on October 17, 1986 – SARA mandates every facility using or storing hazardous chemicals; De-Oil-It complies with SARA Title III, 355, 370, 372 regarding hazardous notifications due each March 1; De-Oil-It does not contain any chemical that needs to be reported to SERC (State Emergency Response Commission), LEPC (Local Emergency Planning Committee), or local firefighters. As such De-Oil-It is regarded as non-hazardous. California Proposition 65 listed chemicals requiring warnings concerning causing cancer; the ingredients of De-Oil-It do not appear on this list. Non-Hazardous declaration is also supported by WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) created in 1988 to give employers and workers warning information (decals required) concerning hazardous products or chemicals they may be exposed to at work.

For Canada, the chemical ingredients in De-Oil-It are not contained in DSL (Domestic Substance List) nor NDSL (Non-Domestic Substance List); these lists ensure products comply with product labeling and usage warning if hazardous; De-Oil-It is non-hazardous in this regard and does not require any specific product/usage warnings other than standard precautionary measures one might take such as safety goggles, ventilation as desired, and if excess application solution does make contact with eyes then flush with fresh water. No special requirements such as clothing, gloves, etc. are required. Finally the chemical ingredients of De-Oil-It are not on the GRAS list of FDA (Generally Regarded as Safe); this list is meant to indicate “safety” for a chemical additive for food; however De-Oil-It is not food.

Disclaimer: Chemical countermeasures (“cleaning”) oil and fuel spills on navigable waters must be authorized by a Federal On-Scene Coordinator (FOSC). If you witness, caused, or are affected by an oil/fuel spill please contact appropriate personnel as the public at large is not authorized to initiate or take on (“countermeasures”) a reportable spill according to the EPA.
For your reference CFR 40 (“Code of Federal Regulations) to determine responsibilities concerning oil and hazardous substance pollution.
Report oil and fuel spills to the Marina office and the U.S. Coast Guard National Response Center at 800.424.8802 and the Office of Emergency Services in your jurisdiction immediately. The NRC is the federal government’s centralized reporting center, which is staffed 24 hours per day by U.S. Coast Guard personnel.
Report unusually large spills that enter or have the potential to enter the storm drain system or a body of water, to your local authorities including the Regional Water Board and the Department of Fish and Game (800-852-7550 OES). Please also contact the appropriate resources that we have listed if you expect spills or spill cleanup that has the potential for water run-off into navigable waters, or have witnessed this scenario.
Although De-Oil-It can be used in navigable waters for oil spill cleanup, the EPA specifically FOSC must approve it for use in oil spill clean-ups on navigable water. The NCP list of products can be selected by FOSC as well as products not on the list.
