White Scum Presoak is designed as a pre-soak softener to facilitate quick removal of white scum on block, brick or concrete. White Scum Presoak's powerful penetration and softening action must be followed by NMD 80 cut 4:1. The presoak should be applied undiluted via sprayer directly on the areas of white scum. Once the white foaming ceases, rinse off with a trigger sprayer, garden hose or pressure rinse. For more information, call (800) 313-8505, or visit www.eacochem.com.
