Surprisingly this product works very well even dilluted like 5:1 or 6:1, i find myself using on very dirty things, very greasy things, it works like magic, i find myself reaching for this more and more, its worth having, its great for tools, for garage,highly recommend it.

I wasn't sure what I was gonna use this product for when I bought it, but I used it on a white car with a black residue that wouldn't wash off. I mixed the Grim Reaper according to instructions, and became amazed. I sprayed it on, and simply wiped it off with a rag wet with no rinse car wash. The residue came off easily. Followed that up with a good washing, and the car looked like new.

I used quite a few CG products but I'm less than impressed with Grime Reaper APC. As far as APC's go it's average. Nothing outstanding about it in my experience. Did CG really put "Stronger THEN acid" on the label. Ouch... They might want to look up the use of then vs. than.

The Very Best. I love how it's Concentrated, this way you can control the power for individual job. This was really great on my engine bay and wheel wells.

The best and safest APC I have ever used. This is my go-to cleaner for every job since I bought this I have used it on every detail. I use it to loosen up dirt in the engine bay and especially the wheel wells. Lift dirt effortlessly but be cautious when using to no breathe in. HOLD YOUR BREATH

Works great, is very strong for most of my jobs I only need to dilute 1:7 or 8.

I wanted a APC I could use mainly for wheels and use it in the engine bay when needed. It performed pretty well in my girlfriends neglected engine bay of her trailblazer. Cut through dirt and grime easily with little or no scrubbing depending on the area. I'm not so impressed with using it as a wheel cleaner. Maybe I need to use a stronger dilution ratio. Using it at 1:5 with water. Just don't see brake dust or dirt run off like in the engine compartment.

Great product, glad I picked this up. Great as a helper for wash or cleaning engine bays or stubborn wheel grime.

I just cooked a pizza and the cheese dripped all over the bottom of the oven. I decided to try the Grime Reaper to pull up the old baked on crud and it did it with ease. So, not only does this stuff do a great job on your car, it's also very potent in the kitchen.

I diluted mine into a 32 oz spray bottle (5-1) and used it on the wheels, wheel wells, and lower body panels for a wash two days ago. It definitely removed a lot of grime and left a smooth finish on the body panels. Today, I used it under the hood and was VERY impressed with the results. Everything under the hood now looks brand new, as if it has never been used. It's a VERY strong cleaner and difficult to use when your face is over the engine and fumes are assaulting your nose. I coughed many, MANY times while applying and am probably several IQ points lower than I started. Bottom line, great product, but watch out for fumes.

It works, but I prefer the P21S Auto Wash to this cleaner anytime. It just happens to be a lot cheaper, but the smell of this product can kill a horse literally.

This stuff is amazing! I diluted the mixture ALOT and it was still able to cut through grease/grime on car, garage floor, etc. If this bottle wasn't concentrated/so powerful, I would definitely buy more right now.....but I don't need to!

chemical guys grime reaper is truly amazing .I just got done using it on my 03 civic's engine compartment. I used it at a 3 to 1 mix and it was more than strong enough to eat through the grease and grime . Just spray let dwell 5 minutes and hit it with a brush rinse and your done . Dry with a towel and your ready for some fade to black . GREAT STUFF I just ordered another bottle . Also works great to clean the bbq grill. THANKS DI.

There is no better APC then Grime Reaper. I use it on my tires, wheel wells and engine bay. Cleans very well, well priced and you can dilute it to your desired strength. What more can you ask for?

Performs like the name says. It kills grime and is best to use diluted so you get more since bugs never stop hitting your car. Good on the wheels and the wells. Just make sure to hold your breath then spray it and walk away. Very strong stuff.

Found George on the forums and asked on how to go about eliminating the black residue build-up from everyday use on my exhaust tips and he suggested the CG Grime Reaper and all I can say is WOW! It was an effortless job and preformed exceptionally! A little bit of this product sure goes a long way!

I was very impressed with how even in 5:1 diluted form, the Grimer Reaper took off 17 years of crud in a friend's '92 Mustang engine bay. I love how the tar and brake dust easily came off of my wheels when spritz with the GR and it helped clean up my exhaust tips as well when finished with some Optimum Metal Polish. Would definitely buy this again, but in a bigger size!

This is an extremely potent cleaner that cuts through almost anything. When heavy cleaning is required, this is product is hard to beat. It packs a punch in performance, but does not hurt the wallet. An extremely underrated product in my experience. It does have a rather foul smell, so use caution if you are sensitive to chemical smells.

this is a great product! i used it diluted 5:1 water/degreaser. i used it on my wheels and engine bay, wow this stuff just lifted the dirt and grime right off the surface, and with a little brushing, my car looked like it only had 200 miles on it. great product!

I used this product on baked-on long-standing brake dust. It cleaned it easily, while other wheel cleaners couldn't do much. If CG Grime Reaper can't clean something, then nothing can. But I'm concerned about the safety and potential health risks of using this product.

This stuff is a really tough degreaser. I diluted it as recommended and I barely had to scrub to remove tar and grease.
