Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless and/or unwanted products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.
This is a significant step towards regenerative design culture where the end products are cleaner, healthier, and usually, have a better value than the material inputs.
Upcycling is a great way to reuse materials and breath new life into once very good quality pieces.
The restoration business has seen a huge increase in upcycling with many enthusiasts renovating one-off pieces to even making a business out of this.
Eco Solutions realized there was a need in this market for safer cleaner, less hazardous products for restoration. Although Home Strip paint and varnish remover is an ideal product for removing paint and varnish this is only needed if you want to go back to the original/raw surface.
There are many pieces that are only in need a light clean up. De-waxing, degreasing or just cleaning back years of grime and dirt are needed prior to being able to repaint and or refinish.
Grime Go! was invented with this in mind, and not only did this product tick all the boxes for the upcycling market but it was also found to be a totally safe alternative to all solvent, alkaline, acid-based cleaners, degreasers that have flooded the market for many years.
Grime Go! Is just as if not more effective than the hazardous solvent type cleaners but with its pH Neutral properties there is no need to wash or clean down prior to refinishing or repainting
