Default Simple Green question

Hi,
I hope I purchased the right item. I heard about the simple green frenzy and went out to get one. Someone said that they got it from Walmart, I went there and all they got was the car washing simple green. It's concentrated. Did I get the right one??? How do I go about diluting it? 1 in 12? I can't remember.
I know someone out there has an answer...

Wiggy, from what I've read from here. You can use simple green to clean your stamps. Very inexpensive and it works, as I read from here....

I've found Lemon scented Simple Green at Menards (like a Lowe's or HD).
Diluting is like 1 to 10 or 1 to 12??

Here's a few threads that talk about Simple Green. HTH.

I bought mine at Walmart. It wasn't in the cleaners aisle either, but in the automotive section they did have it near the tire cleaners and such. They had several different to choose from, but I just got plain ol' Simple Green. It comes in a squirt bottle for some odd reason, considering you have to dilute it. I'm not sure the car wash Simple Green would work.. it might be too sudsing.

I have a 4 oz. spray bottle and fill it 1/4 with Simple Green, 3/4 water. Works great! Extremely economical! Some people put a few drops of glycerin in with it to condition their stamps.

I bought mine in a large spray bottle at Family Dollar or Dollar General, can't remember which. It was with the regular household cleaners. I use it straight up with my stampin up scrubber pad.
