Aerosol Degreaser Versus Liquid Degreaser: How Do They Compare?

Degreasing is one of the most common cleaning operations that requires a specially formulated product that’s designed to cut grease and leave the material that is cleaned grease-free. Some companies choose to purchase degreaser in aerosol form, while other prefer to buy it in liquid form, and use it in spray bottles and/or hand wipe sheets. How do these different forms of degreaser compare to each other? Below, we answer the question using six important criteria.

  1. Cost Per Order

As long as they are ordered in the same capacity (one-off order, same volume, bulk order, etc.) aerosol degreaser and liquid degreaser require roughly the same monetary investment. However, due to its packaging, it isn’t uncommon for aerosol to cost a bit more than liquid.

  1. Leftover Cleaner

Cleaner that is leftover from the degreasing operation has two financial impacts: the more cleaner that is leftover, the less cleaner you get for your money, and the more you spend on professional waste removal services. Aerosol is highly effective at preserving the cleaner.

  1. Ease of Use

Aerosol cleaning solutions can be used right out of the box. So can liquid degreaser, but the user typically prepares it for use in a specific form (hand wipe, spray bottle, cleaning sponge, etc.) In terms of time spent on deployment, aerosol offers the fewest amount of barriers to use.

  1. Ease of Storage

Because it can be broken down into small, individual containers, right out of the box aerosol degreaser is typically easier to store in various spaces than liquid degreaser that comes in a large container. If your cleaner storage space is limited, using aerosol may be the best option.

  1. Rate of Dispersal

Aerosol degreaser has an even rate of dispersal, whereas the dispersal of liquid degreaser depends on how it is deployed (wipe form, spray bottle form, pourable form, etc.). If you need a degreaser that has an unalterable rate of dispersal, using an aerosol degreaser is the way to go.

  1. Range of Use

Aerosol degreaser typically has the widest range of use, as it can be applied to both expansive surfaces and small parts that are tightly surrounded by other parts. This is why some users order liquid degreaser and place it in spray bottles when they need to degrease precision parts.
