Hotsy Detergent

Use Less and Save More!

Just got back from demonstrating the Hotsy Detergent Challenge. A customer used his Aluminium Brightener and soap- Used 4.5 gallons of brightener and just over 2 gallons of soap to wash a waste trailer and tractor. Switched over to our chemical installed a soap orifice and used 1/4 gallon of Aluminium Brightener and 4 ounces of soap. Guess which truck was cleaner with a fraction of the amount of detergent. I will give you hint, we have a great new customer
