I have been using this product for about 25 years in  a number of
applications, especially old stains that resist the development of a
reasonable solubility window.  I have used this preparation on
paper, oil surfaces, metals and ceramics (ceramics was the first
case I was taught to apply it).  Usually I begin with a very dilute
solution (2%) and work up.  I have used it on the suction table and
without, depending on the substrate, flushing with deionized water
always follows treatment.
