ENVIRONMENTAL friendliness is another important characteristic of De-Solv-it products. De-Solv-it products typically have low volatility, are non-ozone-depleting, are biodegradable, have high BTU value, and are recyclable/reclaimable.



When the tragic Alaskan Oil Spill occurred, over 300 products from around the world were thrust at VECO, the Alaska-based clean-up contractor under EXXON Company, U.S.A. Department of Environmental Conservation Product Review Members identified clean-up solutions less toxic than the spill itself, yet none matched the safety and performance of ORANGE-SOL’s brand De-Solv-it.

ORANGE-SOL founder, Al Farnsworth was called to assist with clean-up efforts. Fortified with extensive independent tests, and testimonials, one by one, Farnsworth demonstrated the ORANGE-SOL products’ amazing cleaning power. The attendees looked on in amazement as these products worked with incredible results.

Unfortunately, Farnsworth was met with pessimistic “too-good-to-be-true” resistance.

“Sure, that stuff works great,” loudly challenged an onlooker, “But, there is no way THAT product, that does all this, can be SAFE!”

As curious onlookers watched, Farnsworth, countered. “I’ll show you just how safe this is.” He then poured the citrus solvent into a cup and DRANK IT.

“This product is safe…and we have the independent tests and testimonials to back it up.”

Stunned would-be-doubters took notice.

Shortly thereafter, over 200,000 gallons were shipped to aid with oil spill clean-up, and De-Solv-it® became the #1 Solvent used to clean over 12,000 workers, their boats and equipment.


Equally impressive, after usingORANGE-SOL’s All Purpose Cleaner, workers noticed their nets were turning ORANGE. Fearing the use of harsh chemicals and bleach, they complained, but soon discovered their nets had not been discolored. Instead, ORANGE-SOL’s All Purpose Cleaner had returned their nets to the ORIGINAL COLOR…that which they had not seen in YEARS.

Soon, ORANGE-SOL’s All Purpose Cleaner became the #1 Cleaner used.



Over the last 20 years, De-Solv-it has been used to help clean large spills in Kuwait, Morocco, The Gulf of Mexico and on other spills around the world.

With successful results on such large challenges, imagine how well De-Solv-it products will handle yours!
