    Vapor degreasing is a physical method of removing solvent soluble soils and other entrapped soils from metal, glass, and other essentially nonporous objects. By bringing the soiled articles at room temperature into contact with hot solvent vapor, the vapor condenses to a liquid on them. Sufficient liquid solvent is formed to carry the soluble and insoluble soil away as the solvent drains by gravity.
