Faster, superior results while being environmentally friendly.

The entire world is demanding more sustainable solutions in everything we do, and detergents are no exception. Where most sustainable solutions come with some compromise, Kärcher has improved the performance, the speed and in most cases, lowered the in-use cost for our complete line of detergents. At the same time, we have removed all the phosphate, NTA and EDTA additives and replaced them with better performing materials that have less environmental impact. That's a win for everybody.

Ten Reasons to Use Kärcher Detergents

1. Highly efficient and economical product formulas

Only the best raw materials are used for Kärcher detergents. This makes it possible to use the products in very low and cost-saving doses.

2. Patented, easily separable formulas

Many Kärcher products are made using easily-separable formulas that lead to a quick separation of the aqueous and oleaginous phases in the oil separator and thus support compliance with legal regulations.

3. Material-compatible formulas with corrosion protection components and other special additives

Kärcher detergents are specially formulated for use in Kärcher cleaning appliances. These formulations help to remove the most stubborn dirt while also being gentle on the machine. Numerous detergents contain special ingredients for cleaning and protecting the machine.

Kärcher pressure washer detergents are specially formulated for use in high-pressure cleaners.

Kärcher consistently avoids the use of unnecessary solvents, heavy metals and other environmentally harmful and health-endangering substances. For the best possible protection of the operator, machine and environment.

7. Environmentally friendly thanks to reduced packaging

Kärcher detergents are highly concentrated and therefore require less packing material. This conserves natural resources and facilitates packing material disposal.

8. Developed to meet the highest demands

Numerous Kärcher detergents are of food-grade quality and can be used in all areas of food production as applicable.

9. Best performance with a fresh scent

Numerous Kärcher detergents contain fragrances such as lemon oil to combat unpleasant odors, and leave surfaces looking clean and fresh.

Complete Kärcher Solutions

Kärcher detergents are just as versatile and efficient as the machines in which they are used – as they have been developed specifically for Kärcher equipment. This is the only way to maximize the performance of the machine and detergent system. Kärcher recognized this from an early stage and has used this as its focus in its own research and development. It is the basis of our success and the central concept behind our thinking and actions.
