Thinners and Solvents
Does this remove wax residue from cured epoxy?
If you are looking to remove amine blush, the waxy residue that can be left behind post cure. Warm water and a scotch brite pad will take it off.
Flashpoint? Another answer said not to use in conjunction with other commercial products. Would imply reduces but does not eliminate requirement for other solvents.
The flash point is 56 degrees celsius. Generally it is not a good idea to use multiple solvents unless it is required as part of a multi stage process to prep the substrate.

Can I use this to clean the shore power cord for my sportfish?
I don't think it is anything that will soften the rubber, but try a small area first to be sure.
Can this product replace acetone as a thinner for Total Boat Penetrating Epoxy?
No. It should generally not be used as a thinner for consumer products. TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is designed specifically to be used with Acetone, Denatured Alcohol, or Lacquer Thinner.

Will Eco remove silicone sealant residue?
It replaces acetone so I would think that it would remove silicone, but I'd try it first to be sure.

Is this product water & detergent washable: specifically, if you use this to clean a paint brush, can you then wash the brush in detergent and water to get the brush completely clean and ready to dry for the next use? THANKS

Can I use this to clean my garage floor that we epoxy painted to clean off grease etc.?
Oil Eater might be a better alternative for that.
Yes, that should work well.

Outdoor semi gloss acrylic enamel spilled on concrete complete with foot prints. Eco Solvent removed it all with just a few rubs of a solvent infused cloth.
I will probably NOT buy this product again.
On the positive side, the concept of this product is great, of course. It does perform as stated in that it would replace the use of most other solvents. It cleaned fresh epoxy like acetone and seems not to leave any residue. However the negatives (high flammability and obnoxious, toxic vapors) give it limited use. Do not use this product inside. Even with my shop box fan exhaust the fumes were overwhelming. Make no mistake. It may be plant based but it is still potent and a product that needs to be used with caution.
Great alternative to harsh chemicals
Love the low VOC aspect of this solvent. Used to clean off and wipe down dirty/moldy power generator equipment during overhaul. Works great! Will be back for more.
So far so good
I'm very pleasantly surprised at how well this product works. Have only used it once but quite impressed
