Anyone have any experience with Citrus King adhesive remover?
Here's the website:

It looks like the only place you can get it is online.. which always has me wary.

I've got some cutback to take off my concrete basement floor and this stuff seems like it would be the least noxious and most environmentally friendly way to do it.

Anyone? Anyone?

[EDIT:] I'm looking to get some plain ol' floor paint down over this stuff to give me a clean slate if I ever want to lay some carpet for a rec-room someday.

Never used it, I have some of that nasty Goo Gone, need rubber gloves with it and well ventilated.
Be safe, Gary

Hey... thought I would follow up and tell you I broke down and bought a jug of this stuff.

It really does work. I applied it with a sprayer and after about 15 minutes, it liquified the cutback. There's no noxious fumes. It smells strongly like oranges. Not a sweet orange juice smell, more of a bitter orange rind type smell. But not bad.

Clean-up is messy though. It liquifies the cutback so well that you're essentially cleaning up a giant motor oil spill. I've never used Jassco, but I could see where a more gel-based remover would have the advantage here.

All in all, I'm impressed with it. I plan on doing the rest of the floor in the spring when I can open the windows on the house. The orange smell lingers for quite a while in my tiny ranch home. Like I said, it's not a bad smell.. it just gets a little sickening after a few days. :)
