What are your products made of?
Double Scorpio cleaners are all made with isobutyl nitrite, or a mixture of isobutyl nitrite and its isomers. Double scorpio does not contain any isopropyl/propyl nitrite (which causes eye damage) or Amyl/pentyl/isoamyl/isopentyl nitrite, which is illegal in the US.
What are the differences between Double Scorpio and other brands bottles?
The main difference between bottles is the scent. All of Double Scorpio products except for Gold and White Gold are 100% isobutyl nitrite, but they have different scents added. If that sounds gross to you, our Sapphire bottles are unscented.
What’s the best way to store VHS cleaner to keep it fresh longer?
There are three things that are bad for leather cleaner: Sunlight, moisture, and warm temperatures. Keep the bottles out of direct sunlight, especially the green bottles. Keep the bottles in a refrigerator or freezer when you’re not using them. But let them warm up before opening the bottle, if it’s cold, it will pull in moisture from the air more quickly. The best way to avoid moisture buildup is to open the bottle as little as possible. You can maximize shelf life by transferring some cleaner to a smaller bottle each cleaning session. That way the main bottle only needs to be opened once.
What are those small balls inside the bottles?
Those balls are called molecular sieves. They absorb moisture to improve shelf life. They are similar to the silica beads you find in pill bottles and the pockets of new clothes. Other brands will claim these are “power-pellets” and that they “create free radicals” to increase strength… um… Sure Jan.
