Handling: Improper handling of this product can be injurious to workers. Observe all safety precautions shown on the label and in the Material Safety Data Sheet. 
Directions for Surface Synthetic Mud Clean-Up: Apply RC-4 cleaning solution to soiled surface by spraying, pouring, or brushing. If possible, scrub the surface with brushes and/or brooms. Let the cleaning solution sit for three to ten minutes to allow for penetration, but not so long as to let the soiled surface "dry out." Hose off with water under pressure. Do not apply water to the soiled surface before the application of the cleaning solution. The concentration of RC-4 to water depends on the severity of the surface to be cleaned, including synthetic mud condition, age, thickness, and other possible contaminates, as well as the type of surface that is soiled.
