Blue Lightening is the product of choice in areas of the country that have ‘hard water.’ Hard water is water that has high mineral content (in contrast with “soft water”). Hard water is formed when water percolates through deposits of limestone and chalk-containing minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Hard Water dramatically reduces the ability to ‘suds’ and/or clean.
All EnviroSpec products contain a high level of ‘water softening’ ingredients however, Blue Lightning has been formulated with a ‘double-dose’ of those products.

Dilutions: The amount you dilute a detergent product depends on many factors and cannot be covered by one statement. The following guideline is a starting point from which you should adjust. Chemical dilution needs to be adjusted because of weather conditions, cleaning difficulty, washing method used (including psi) and whether or not you brush as well as the desired result. Remember that a typical downstream injector dilutes the product approximately 1 part detergent to 9 parts water (10%). With EnviroSpec’s Super Suds Sucker Injector (part number 1964) you will be able to draw up to 33% product. This injector will give you a much faster and a cleaner clean.
Washing technique: Apply to a cool surface. Run a test pattern first to determine concentration compatibility. Apply detergent through a down-stream injector. Apply detergent from the ‘bottom-up’ and rinse from the ‘top-down.’ As you rinse do so in an overlapping pattern much like you would when you spray-paint a surface. Apply in such a manner that will allow you to completely rinse the surface before the detergent dries.
Note: It is important to always rinse well and when you think you are done – rinse again. This should be common practice with all cleaning solutions. Pay special attention to horizontal surfaces that may trap detergent, allowing it to run down onto surfaces after you have washed them. Examples of where this occurs would be ‘run-off’ from tractor roofs and trailer tops. Try not to put detergent in these areas, if you do be sure to rinse it off. It is also important to note that all detergents rinses better with warm water than with cold. By adding 1-gallon of Speed-X-777 to 55 gallons of your favorite EnviroSpec detergent you will cut your rinse time by 70%.
Make it a practice to always read and insist your employees read and understand the SDS that accompanies this product. If one did not come with the product visit the website and look under chemical products and download the SDS or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAUTION – Avoid Alkaline Shock: Any detergent product that is applied to a hot surface stands a chance of producing alkaline shock. If the surface is hot and a strong detergent solution is applied – the water evaporates from the product before you have a chance to rinse – all resulting in a dull, streaked or tarnished surface which is often irreversible. Cool the surface down with water first then apply the product. On real hot days turn off the pressure washer burner and wash with cold water.
