4U PRODUCTS HISTORY
4U-Concentrated Cleaner was originally designed specifically for the industrial and aerospace industry. The need for safe, non-toxic and biodegradable cleaners was not in the forefront of technology in 1975. Our small company was involved in creating safe methods to shape the
metals for expanding world dominance in the sky. Along with a multitude of chemical compositions developed specifically as water base products to eliminate the use of solvents in the production
of exotic metals such as titanium, zirconium and others, we formulated
our first industrial cleaner, MC-509.
The production of our concentrated cleaner degreaser increased dramatically and word spread throughout the employees of our customers about the ability of such a small amount of cleaner
was required to do big jobs. It wasn’t long before these employees were requesting how they
could purchase this terrific cleaner for themselves. Thus was born the consumer label
“4U” Concentrated Cleaner.
Many tests have been performed on our 4U Concentrated Cleaner to prove its safety and effectiveness and also to compare it to the competition. The tests prove that no other cleaner
on the market today is more versatile, effective or safe.
From the very first bottle we packaged, the question was why not put the sprayer into the concentrate. The answer is simple; we do not want this highly concentrated cleaner to be used full strength, ever. The “Combi-Pak” was designed to offer the customer an empty container and trigger sprayer with dilution scales on both containers to make the dilution process simple. For safety purposes, the trigger sprayer will not fit on the concentrated cleaner bottle.
We counted on the public’s intelligence to grasp the concept of adding just one ounce of concentrated cleaner to an empty sprayer bottle and filling it with water would result in monumental savings. This was a new concept since everyone was buying the cleaners already packaged that way and happy to pay the price for the convenience of buying the water.
To prove its effectiveness, free of charge, we began by giving away over a million 4-oz samples.
It didn’t take long to realize that the “sample” lasted so long, sales were suffering. We reduced
the samples to a 1 oz size which will make 16 oz of a medium strength cleaner or 32 oz of an
all-purpose cleaner, and gave away a million more.
That brings us full circle and to our new website. You won’t find 4U-Concentrated Cleaner in your neighborhood market because they rely on turnover and when you buy a bottle of 4U,
it lasts a very long time. Our website has complete information on just how and where
you can use 4U. But, the simple way of describing 4U Concentrated Cleaner is to remember,
it cleans everything, indoors and out and it always works.
