As a glass and commercial cleaner, you are constantly faced with the challenge of effectively removing stubborn soiling, such as limescale deposits, rust, soap and mineral residues. Matthias Luther from the company GSK-Services performed the user test on the showpiece Breuninger in Freiburg. His recommendation: UNGER RubOut.

The partially floor-to-ceiling windows on the fourth floor were badly affected by external environmental factors - this was the challenge faced by Matthias Luther when he received the assignment of the manual glass renovation of the Breuninger fashion boutique in Freiburg. With conventional glass cleaners, even after intensive tests, limescale deposits, rust, soap and mineral residues could not always be removed with the desired result. Luther received some advice from the UNGER sales representative for the area: UNGER RubOut.

Effective against any kind of soiling

To test the material compatibility and scratch sensitivity, Luther first applied the product in an unobtrusive spot. Since there were no impairments to be seen, he began with the cleaning process: The area to be treated was washed down with water. Then he applied RubOut on a damp cloth and worked it in circular movements on the dirty glass surface. The surface then only had to be cleaned with water and dried with a squeegee and cloth. In areas that were particularly affected, Luther repeated the process and as a professional was immediately convinced of the very good cleaning result. With the professional limescale remover from UNGER, even the most stubborn dirt was removed effortlessly.

"Compared to conventional glass cleaners, the strong performance of UNGER RubOut immediately became apparent. The work was faster and more efficient, with a better result. At the same time, the product does not have that typical pungent smell. And the most important thing: The customer was completely satisfied with the result. So I definitely recommend it", Luther summed up.
