Tec clean A1 is formulated to be easily and thoroughly rinsed off with water, leaving no chemical residue after rinsing with distilled or deionized water. The mildly alkaline solution can be used over and over until it begins to lose effectiveness. The frequency with which you need to change the solution depends on how often you clean and the amount of contamination being removed from parts.
