“Necessity is the mother of invention.” We hear that phrase a lot. But, before we try to understand how and why, in this case, the need for degreasers brought about their invention, we must start with defining what a degreaser is and what it actually does.

What is Degreaser?

By design, a “degreaser” is a product that eliminates scrubbing and wiping as it lifts fingerprints, soils, oils, grease, and other contaminants from surfaces. Degreasers come in many forms, including aerosols, sprays, bulk immersion fluids, concentrated powders, gels, and more. Their versatility has made them a permanent fixture in factories, the workplace, and at home.

Technically-speaking, a cleaner does not degrease, nor does a degreaser clean; both fulfill different functions. Industrial cleaners and degreasers are popular maintenance products used in automotive to aviation, transportation, refinery, aerospace, medical, and much more. In less industrial environments, degreasers are handy for maintaining food preparation surfaces, public spaces, the garage, and even outdoor barbecue grills.

Whether a surface is as large as an airplane or smaller than a custom bolt, combining deep cleaning with the power of degreasing produces timesaving, cost-effective results for people and business operations.
