Toro CITROSQUEEZE® Turnout Gear Cleaner
is specially formulated from biodegrade able, environmentally
safe ingredients to remove harmful and stubborn hydrocarbons
resulting from fires and chemical spills. Unlike other manufacturers,
our product CITROSQUEEZE® is a one stop shop for cleaning
gear except for dried on tar. We at Toro Sales Inc. realize
there are hundreds of cleaners in the market place today.
Some are very acidic or very alkaline, but do they do not
have the approvals that CITROSQUEEZE® has. Some cleaners
are powders which may get caught in between the weave. In
time some of these undissolved powders can get caught between
the weave of the shell, therefore making the gear less waterproof.
CITROSQUEEZE® has no powder in its formula and it is
only a pH of 8.5. From our testimonials, the user states
that after cleaning the gear, it smells so nice. This is
because of the natural ingredients that are part of the
CITROSQUEEZE® will clean diesel contaminated clothing.
In order to get the diesel off, the gear should be soaked
for up to 1 hour. It should be soaked in a container, such
as a plastic garbage container or 55 gallon plastic drum.
The dilution rate should be 1 part Citrosqueeze and 8 or
10 parts water. One gallon of Citrosqueeze to 8 or 10 gallons
of water. Once the gear has been cleaned, wring the gear
over the container, put the gear in the washer extractor,
do not put additional CITROSQUEEZE® into the washer
as there is enough left on the gear.In extreme instances where garment is heavily soiled, such
as in a training institution, Citrosqueeze may extend garment
life by an average of 14 months. Toro CITROSQUEEZE® Turnout gear cleaner is specially
formulated from biodegradable, environmentally safe ingredients
to remove harmful and stubborn residue resulting from fires
and chemical spills.

endangering personnel near live wires
- Gear impregnated with oil, grease, soot and smoke CAN

- Consistent cleaning with Citrosqueeze may increase the
life of the gear up to 14 months.
- When using Citrosqueeze you do not have to have other
cleaners as some companies suggest, Citrosqueeze will
take off all the soils except where you have dried on
tar. In order to get dried on tar off, because it is a
petroleum product, you would have to use a petroleum based
product like mineral spirits.
