Using One Step
Posted by Happyeater (Happyeater), 6 February 20044 x 5 litres arrived today. I notice that the instructions seem vague about dilution rates. Am I correct to assume that 16 to 1 for a pre spray and similar for extraction is about right on fairly heavily soiled tiles in the reception of an office building?

I dilute at 1-16 as a pre-spray in my hand-held sprayer, apply to area, agitate, then extract with plain hot water in my machine.
Posted by Derek (Derek Bolton), 7 February 2004Hi Happy
A good pre vacuum then a light pre spray... ooodles of agitation followed by a plain water rinse should do the trick.
Posted by Happyeater (Happyeater), 7 February 2004Thanks Derek, will just a light pre spray suffice along with a hot water extraction? We use a Truvox 'pull along' type of machine.
Posted by Derek (Derek Bolton), 7 February 2004The agitation is the 'key'
Stick with it
Posted by Happyeater (Happyeater), 7 February 2004Ah, agitation....Mrs Eater says I'm bleedin great at that
Posted by paul@ctcs (paul@ctcs), 7 February 2004Last week i used one step for the first time and was delighted with the results.As recomended i vacuumed,pre-sprayed (at 5-1 which it would seem is on the strong side) agitated well using pile brush and then used the comanche with warm water.The customer was more than pleased so needless to say i'll be using micro-splitters again in the future.

Try a dilution rate of 1:15 (One-step), or 1:16 (Solution)I think you will be surprised.
Posted by Derek (Derek Bolton), 7 February 2004Hey Happy

Posted by Happyeater (Happyeater), 7 February 2004Yeah Derek, anything for money, eh?
