*This Heavy Duty Citrus Solvent is Not recommended for use on: butyl, suede, leather, any silks, rubber, & elastic items. Remove clothing before treating. This product may not be compatible with all carpeting. ON CARPETING, USE AT OWN RISK. For best results on carpet, extract with wet/dry vac, Bissell, etc. Do not use on rubber backed rugs.

To remove floor adhesive: 1. Apply (pour or spray) one coat coverage: 200 – 250 Sq. Ft. per gallon (approximately). 2. Remove liquefied adhesive with wet/dry vac, silica sand, cat litter or shovel/scraper. 3. Dispose of according to regulations. 4. Wash concrete thoroughly with degreaser floor wash and rinse before reapplying adhesive. IMPORTANT: Some darker floor adhesives such as cutback mastics will start to liquefy immediately. Some of the lighter, yellow/white latex adhesives may take 20 minutes to 2 hrs to show signs of softening. you may want to test a small area by keeping it consistently moist to better gauge the bond-breaking point of the older adhesive before applying this product to a larger area. Once this softening time-frame is determined, you can decide how large of an area at one time you would like to manage with more product.

Tough Stain Challenges (For Oil, Tars, Greases, Fresh Applications, Spills, etc.): 1. Apply. 2. Wipe. 3. Rinse for best results with this amazing citrus cleaning solvent.

Tougher Challenges (For Tougher Challenges that have started to set-up, yet are still pliable, or somewhat moist): 1. Apply, let set up to 5 min. 2. Peel, scrape, or wipe. 3. Rinse with water or mild soap and water if reapplying adhesive.

Toughest Challenges (For almost impossible challenges such as Liquid Putties, Latex Adhesives, Thicker Applications, Set lacquer, etc.): 1. Apply & let set up to 30 minutes to 2 hrs. 2. Keep moist with product. 3. Peel, scrape or wipe. Rinse.

  1. I LOVE “De-Solv-it Contractors’ Solvent”!!! I used the solvent on a fiberglass shower stall to remove caulk. I happily discovered that the solvent cleaned the fiberglass surfaces. I tried to clean the soap/calcium deposits on the floor of the shower, etc., for years, without sucess. The shower stall now is gleaming clean. I am a beliver that this product is a must have among my cleaning products for my home. It is also really important (and a priority) to me that “De-Solv-it” is a Eco-friendly Biodegradable Product. Thank you!!!

  2. Our marketing department had placed stickers on many of our windows for a promotion, and when they were removed they left the adhesive behind. Since the windows were tinted we couldn’t scrape them. De-Solv-It worked wonderfully and allowed us to remove the adhesive without damaging the tine.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your story. As long as De-Solv-it doesn’t reach the edges of the tint (because tint is applied with adhesive), De-Solv-it should continue to work wonderfully!

  3. Get’s out smell of skunk on dogs as well! And non-toxic!!

    I love De-Solv-It and it is a must have in this household. I use it for so many things but most important is the laundry. Even if a stain has been treated with something else and the garment washed AND dried but the stain remains….use De-Solv-It and rewash and your stain WILL be gone!! My daughter makes items with pine branches and she sprays some De-Solv-It on her hands and the pine sap just comes right off. De-Solv-It is the MIRACLE cleaning solution!!

    • Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your De-Solv-it story! De-Solv-it can also be used to remove the pine and other tree sap from autos, boats and motorcycles without harming the paint or clear-coat finish!

  5. Amazing product! I spent almost six hours the other day prying up vinyl flooring tiles in my kitchen using other solvents that claimed to dissolve the adhesive, while my husband used the same product to try to scrub up the residual adhesive. We got less than half done and it was messy, exhausting, smelly work that severely dried out my hands, nose, throat, and eyes and left the plywood a sticky, disgusting mess. Today I bought two spray bottles of the Contractor’s Solvent and got more tile and the residual adhesive removed in less than two hours with one bottle than I did in six hours with the other product, with far less mess and effort and without the burning nose, throat and eyes. I found that if I sprayed around the perimeter of each tile, then waited a minute or so, I could pry the tiles up intact with significantly less effort or frustration. After popping off a small section of tiles, I would spray the area, wait 3-5 minutes, and I could just scrape up the remaining adhesive with no scrubbing or additional water. Great product!

  6. I just used this product on my range hood. It worked great! Other products needed to be used two or more times to remove the tacky grease that comes from my gas stove top. I also used it on crayon and it took it right off. I’ll use this product again, it saved me a lot of work.

  7. After using up a 12 oz spray bottle in five short years, I ordered a gallon. It seems when I run across something that is absolutely perfect for a particular job then I can no longer get it and that was NOT going to occur in this case. Seldom do I recommend a product but this deserves the highest praise because it works when the other stuff falls short. I had to order online because the local national chains didn’t carry the Contractor’s De-Solv. Suppose they only carry what moves quickly, and truly this stuff isn’t cheap, but it’s worth every penny. If the Contractor’s De-Solv is new to you then spend a little extra and get some. You will not be sorry. P.S. Gotta try this on the range hood. Last stuff took the paint off.

  8. The name of this product should be changed from contractors solvent to miracle in a bottle!! The floor tile in my basement was glued to the floor with tar in the 1950’s. Removing the time was easy, but ye hard dried tar remained. I tried everything from harsh solvents to grinding the tar and concrete with a 4″ angle grinder with a diamond cup. Everything I tried either failed or was back breaking work. Then I tried this product and the ancient dried tar dissolved rapidly and was extremely easy!!! I went right out and bought more to finish the job. Would recommend to anyone and everyone. I’ll be taking this product to work for them to try on some industrial cleaning projects!

  9. The contractor strength is fantastic, I had tree pine sap on my vehicle and on the window and mirror, I sprayed and used a paper towel to remove, so very easy. This product is like no other in have ever used. Takes of stickers, on cans all sorts of things and no greasy residue left.behind d. I highly recommend this product over any other.

  10. I am asking for the actual SDS on this great product– TrUE VALUE site only had a MSDS which is outdated now— Am putting all SDS together for my crew here– Thanks– Rick Mechtly– Expediter ————————- Is a fine product—-

  11. This is the best cleaner ever it will remove anything I love it a product that works

  12. Excellent on double stick tape,and cleaning roof tar on your hands and tools.
