The Essential Guide to Clean Fuel Dispensers Using OTIS Multi-Surface Cleaner
For businesses in the fuel industry, maintaining clean fuel dispensers is crucial not only for aesthetics but also for functionality and safety. Over time, fuel dispensers can get encrusted with grime, including hardened diesel residues, which can be challenging to remove. Harsh chemicals often don't do the job well and can be environmentally harmful. That's where OTIS Multi-Surface Cleaner steps in to deliver impressive results with less effort.
Why Keeping Fuel Dispensers Clean is Essential:
- Safety: Accumulated fuel residues can become slippery and hazardous.
- Functionality: Grime and dirt can clog or damage dispenser parts, affecting their efficiency.
- Aesthetics: Clean fuel dispensers enhance the image of the establishment, encouraging more customers.
Materials Needed for OTIS Multi-Surface Cleaner Concentrate:
- Two 32 oz. spray bottles: One labeled "OTIS" and the other "WATER"
- OTIS Multi-Surface Cleaner Concentrate
- Access to fresh water
- Optional: Absorbent pads for quick drying
Steps to Achieve Clean Fuel Dispensers Using the Concentrate:
- Prepare the Solution:
- Mix 3 scoops (teaspoons) of OTIS with 32 oz. of water in the "OTIS" bottle.
- Fill the "WATER" bottle with 32 oz. of water.
- Set the "OTIS" spray bottle to jet stream and generously apply the solution to the fuel dispenser. Let it act for about 15-30 seconds. This dwell time will help in breaking down the stubborn stains.
- Use the "WATER" spray bottle to rinse off the OTIS solution. You can either let the dispenser air-dry or use absorbent pads for immediate drying.
For OTIS Multi-Surface Cleaning Wipes:
Wipe Preparation: Remove the entire lid from the OTIS container, pop open the center cap, and gently pull the first wipe through the center loop. Reseal the lid.
- Using an OTIS Wipe, apply even pressure to clean the fuel dispensers. If a detailed cleaning is required, wring out excess solution from the wipe before starting.
Repeat and Reseal: Depending on the level of dirt, you might need to use multiple wipes. Always ensure to close the container cap tightly after use to prevent the wipes from drying out.
