    Hi everyone

    I bought 2 IBCs dirt cheap and are in great condition. However they were previously used to store fabric conditioner.

    I've just spent the last hour or so cleaning them out with a pressure washer but they seem to feel greasy still when u touch the insides.

    Any suggestions?

    Sorry bud missed that bit!

    I would try a degreaser or traffic film remover then. Something like ubik or virosol.
