A combination wet/dry stain remover

The Versatile Combination™

Stains can be water-soluble, solvent-soluble, or both, but the nature of a stain is not always easy to determine, making it difficult to decide which spotter to use.

When you don’t know what caused a stain, don’t waste time with trial and error spotting. Reach for 2-1 FORMULA. It’s the versatile solution for a wide variety of stains. That’s because 2-1 FORMULA is a combination of two parts STREETEX® pre-spotter and one part PICRIN® volatile dry spotter. If the stain contains oil or grease, PICRIN will tackle it; if it contains water-soluble soil, the STREETEX goes to work.



Because of its ability to attack both water-soluble and solvent-soluble stains, 2-1 FORMULA is especially useful for removing many stains containing both water-soluble and solvent-soluble components like food and perspiration.  2-1 FORMULA will do the job that would otherwise require two or more separate spotters.

Effective on Embedded Soil

No ready-made spotter is as effective as 2-1 Formula for brushing out embedded soil. With the application of 2-1 FORMULA on collars, cuffs, hemlines, and drape linings, recleaning can often be eliminated.

Effective on Latex Paint

Conventional oily-type paint removers, while effective on oil-based paints, do not have the same ability to remove latex paint. With 2-1 FORMULA, latex paint stains can be removed faster and more effectively than any ready-made spotter.

Removes Light Paint, Oil, and Grease Stain.

2-1 FORMULA is effective on light oil and grease stains. When working with paint stains, it can be difficult to distinguish between a latex and other paints. Because 2-1 FORMULA is effective on some oil-based paints, the formula has gained popularity as a general paint-oil-grease remover.

Soluble in Water and Solvent

Because of its dual solubility, 2-1 FORMULA can be feathered with water and steam after spotting small, isolated stains. It can also be used as a reclean formula when spotting larger or wide-spread stains, providing more flexibility than reclean formulas.

Specially Marked Spotting Bottle Available Free of Charge

Enables you to mix 2-1 FORMULA directly in the dispensing bottle without the need for other measuring aids.
