It did pretty decent. The harder stuff will either need to soak longer or you will need to use mineral spirits. Compared to berryman's it didn't work as well, but it does work. What I liked is you can put this stuff in a 5 gal bucket and soak it. I filled the bucket to about the 4gal point. I used a brush to knock of the carbon. At the end of the day with one overnight soak it took about 60-70% of the carbon off. My solution was mixed about 60% PS 40% water.

To do a 5gal bucket of Berryman's or Mineral Spirits would be considerably more expensive. The sediment settles to the bottom and oil rises to the top.
