This year marks the 35th anniversary for LTP’s Grimex deep cleaner. Reportedly one of the company’s top-five best selling products, the heavy-duty grime and stain remover remains a firm favourite within the tiling trade, LTP says, providing a solution for a myriad of issues, indoors and outdoors.
Still featuring the original formulation, Grimex is designed for all types of natural and engineered stone and tile, from limestone and marble, to ceramic and porcelain. According to the manufacturer it can be used to remove residue before application of a sealer; to daily and deep clean surfaces and to renovate tiles in all environments, including historic settings.
Used at different dilutions to tackle different issues, Grimex removes oil, grease, ingrained dirt, water-based paint and old layers of wax. Applications reportedly range from paths and patios, pool surrounds and cladding, to floors, countertops, wall tiles and hearths. For general cleaning, it should be diluted with water 1:10 and applied with a mop or cloth; surfaces are then wiped with a clean, damp cloth. At this dilution, the product has a coverage rate of approximately 50sqm per litre. For more severe staining – and to strip surfaces during renovations and before resealing – it can be used at a 1:3 dilution or neat, and surfaces are agitated before rinsing.
