Orange cleaners work extremely well as multi-purpose chemicals, no matter the dilution; in concentrated form on tough grease and soils and in less concentrated dilutions, they are used for many general cleaning applications. They are cost-effective and leave behind a pleasant scent, making them a popular choice for use on the front lines.

D-Limonene, which is extracted from the oil found in citrus rinds, is an especially powerful natural solvent, degreaser and deodorizer. It is added to products such as general-purpose cleaners, restroom and kitchen cleaners and floor cleaners, replacing harsher and more caustic chemicals found in traditional products. D-Limonene is biodegradable, making it very environmentally friendly, and are non-caustic in diluted form.
