Abstract The article discusses acidic and alkaline cleaning agents and types of impurities removed. Their influence on paint coatings and construction elements of rolling stock is also described. It shows what contaminants occur during the operation of rolling stock exploitation and materials of carriage elements to be washed. The scope of the test and requirements for cleaning preparations for washing of rolling stock are also presented. Then, test results of the examined preparations are discussed along with the interpretation and conclusions.
