Vulpex Soap?
« on: April 05, 2010, 12:43:25 am »
Hi everyone, this is my first post.  Lately, I've been experimenting with a few methods of cleaning coins, but one which I can't seem to find much about is the use of Vulpex liquid soap.  Does anyone have experience with this solution?  Any special conditions under which it works especially well?  Any imput would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

Vulpex soap?  Never heard of it...is it a dish soap?  Laundry detergent?  What country do you find it?

  From the web.


  Vulpex is a liquid soap based on potassium methyl cyclohexyl oleate. It is an excellent cleaning agent for masonry, textiles, leather, precious metals, ivory, paintings, and armor. It is widely known throughout the museum world as a versatile wet or dry spirit cleaner for nearly any material, from paper to stone. The efficacy of other organic solvents in removing dirt can be increased through the addition of Vulpex. It is soluble both in water (5% solution) and organic solvents such as white spirit and 1,1,1-Trichlorethane (1% solution). Vulpex is a non-corrosive, non-foaming, non-hazardous, germicidal, non-acidic insecticidal formulation. It has a pH of 11.5.

For coins it seemed to be a little better than regular detergent (for washing dishes) but that may have been wishful thinking, after all it I had just paid a lot of money for the stuff. It also smells like urinal cake.
