Xtreme Clean - Frequently Asked Questions

Is Xtreme Clean certified for use on a dairy farm?
It certainly is. Xtreme Clean is the only citrus cleaner in New Zealand certified for use on dairy farms. Xtreme Clean is MPI certified for use in dairy sheds, meaning it can be stored and used on the farm. You can see a copy of this certification on our certification page
What other certifications does Xtreme Clean have?
XClean Xtreme Clean carries the C32 approval from the Ministry of Primary Industries  You can see a copy of this certification on our certification page.  It is certified from Assure Quality for use in a number of situations. You can see this on our certifications page
If you require additional certification please get in touch on 0800 366 292.
Can I use Xtreme Clean at a stronger dilution rate?
Absolutely. Our suggested dilution rates are the result of many years testing and experimenting. However if your surface is particularly messy (or if you only have your stronger dilution bottle close at hand) you can use Xtreme Clean at a stronger rate.
Does Xtreme Clean deteriorate with age?
No Xtreme Clean does not deteriorate. We guarantee it will not deteriorate for at least five years. Why five years? Because we don’t want to keep your customer details for an eternity. And if we destroy those details we don’t know if you are being honest about when you purchased the product. So five years was set as an arbitrary guarantee date.
What is in Xtreme Clean?
The main ingredient is the oil from the skin of oranges.. It also contains a special blend of biodegradable surfactants and water softeners and builders. Because nobody likes handling treacle it has just enough water to make it easy to use.
What can't I use Xtreme Clean on?
If you wouldn’t put water on the item in question don’t put Xtreme Clean on it. It’s common sense, you water down Xtreme Clean with water, so if water is bad for the surface Xtreme Clean won’t be better. For this reason we do not recommend using Xtreme Clean on fine fabrics such as silk and suede.
You should be very cautious about using Xtreme clean on very old wooden lacquers. These lacquers were used up until the 1960s. Xtreme Clean is powerful enough that it can remove these lacquers, which on an antique is never the intended result.
Can I use Xtreme Clean if I have a septic tank?
Yes you absolutely can. Xtreme Clean is safe to use with a septic tank and is much better for your system than many store bought cleaners.
What if I get Xtreme Clean on my skin?
Xtreme Clean is harmless to normal skin; we have a number of customers that use Xtreme Clean as a hand cleaner. However it is a cleaner and we are obligated to recommend that you wear protective eyewear.  We also recommend you wear gloves when cleaning for lengthy periods of time.
Also each person is unique. There is nothing in the world that somebody isn’t allergic to. We had one prospect who got a mild rash with every form of surfactant on the market. If this is you, be cautious, wear gloves. But if you use dishwashing liquid or spray and wipe without gloves you’ll be fine with Xtreme Clean.
Can I use Xtreme Clean if I have dermatitis or asthma?
Almost certainly. A number of customers love our products for this very reason. However we are aware that every person is different and the only way to know for sure is to try Xtreme Clean yourself. It is backed with our 30 day money back guarantee. If you know the exact compounds that exaggerate your dermatitis/asthma give us a call on 0800 366 292 and we can tell you if Xtreme Clean contains anything similar to those compounds.
What if I am allergic to citrus fruits?
Sadly you can’t use Xtreme Clean. It is literally made from citrus fruits.
Will Xtreme Clean damage the rubber seals in my knapsack or garden pressure sprayer?
Xtreme Clean CANNOT damage the seals in your knapsack or garden pressure sprayers. You can leave Xtreme Clean in your knapsack for a year and there would be no degrading of the knapsack or its seals.
