Frequently Asked Questions about the cleaner.

What is the difference between the liquid and the paste?
The liquid and paste are both full strength cleaner. You will find that the paste will work best for all of your really tough jobs, but the liquid is far more convenient for certain aplications. Liquid Quick n Brite is best used for steam clean machines or for mixing in a hurry. It also is the easiest to mix for use in spray bottles. Quick n Brite paste is better used for set in stains or stains that require more attention. To make full strength liquid from the paste, you will need to melt the paste in the microwave on a low setting or on the stovetop without adding water.

Can I use this cleaner on hardwood floors?
Yes. QB does a wonderful job cleaning hardwood floors with or without a finish on them. Please see our Cleaning Guide and follow directions under Natural Wood, Antiques, Cabinets...

Will Quick n Brite remove pet stains from carpeting?
Yes. It will remove pet stains. Simply Apply QB paste or liquid full strength to the affected area and let sit a few minutes. RINSE THOROUGHLY. If it's in the carpet use a shammy or other absorbent cloth to soak up the liquid. Repeat this process until odor is eliminated. For urine stains, first apply equal parts white vinegar and water to neutralize odor. Then apply QB paste or liquid full strength and let sit a few minutes. RINSE THOROUGHLY. Repeat process until odor is eliminated.

Will Quick n Brite remove set in persperation stains?
Yes. We recommend that you wet the area and apply the paste full strength to the stain and allow to sit 20-30 minutes or overnight. Rinse by hand or simply put it in the washing machine and wash as normal. Repeat if necessary.

Does it remove hard water stains?
For these types of stains we advise using a 0000 steel wool wet. Use this to apply Quick n Brite paste generously. The steel wool breaks up the surface tension and allows the cleaner to penetrait the stain. Rub it in and let sit for 15-20 minutes. The hard water stain may not come completely clean the first time depending on the severity. Repeat this process if necessary.

Is it safe on marble?
Yes. For marble apply Quick n Brite full strength (liquid or paste) with a wet scrub sponge. Let it sit for 20-30 minutes and reapply again with wet scrub sponge, then rinse clean.

What about tough hard water stains in the bathroom?
Wet the surface first with warm water, then apply QB paste with a wet scrub sponge and let sit for 30 minutes. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

When I wash my windows, it seems like Quick n Brite leaves streaks. Why?
Typically this happens when your solution is too concentrated. It takes very little QB to clean windows. The light solution works best for windows and mirrors, leaving them streak-free and preventing them from fogging. We suggest that you add more hot water to your solution. Streaks occur when the solution is too strong.

How much cleaner does one bottle of the liquid make?
One 64oz. jug of liquid makes 12 gallons of Heavy Solution or 64 gallons of Light Solution cleaner.
