Degreasers are oil-based or water-based chemicals that are used to clean metal by washing off dirt, grease and oil. Oil-based degreasers can be toxic and flammable. Even small amounts entering surface or groundwater can result in pollution. Many oil-based degreasers evaporate quickly and contribute to air pollution. Water-based cleaners are generally safer for the user and the environment. Degreasers should be disposed of as hazardous waste.
