Yeah, I hope it gets to where they have to drop prices to sell stuff. As long as people are paying it they'll keep going up. I'm fine to run the long game. I don't buy high.The price on everything has gone up so much no one is buying. And now loan rates are going up.
I found Mean Green at Lowe's. It says to not to use it on aluminum. Then I looked at the labels on a bunch of other cleaners, which all said the same thing.I use Mean Green at 100% strength. It's made by Rust-Oleum, you can get it at Lowes or Dollar General. Simple Green works as well but it will etch aluminum.
I think I forgot to reply to that earlier. Regular Simple Green is aggressive on aluminum, and wouldn't be my first choice.I found Mean Green at Lowe's. It says to not to use it on aluminum. Then I looked at the labels on a bunch of other cleaners, which all said the same thing.
Maybe I'll try the Dawn?
Thanks. I'll try the Simple Green HD first.I think I forgot to reply to that earlier. Regular Simple Green is aggressive on aluminum, and wouldn't be my first choice.
But Simple Green HD is supposed to be safe for aluminum. This used to be listed on their website, but the last time I looked I did not find that listed (I think it had been in their FAQs). I've had no issues with carbs, etc, that I've cleaned in it. Highly recommended by me, it's pretty cheap ($15 for a gallon of concentrate), easy to find locally, and very effective, including removing oil and stuff. I think I dilute it to around 1:5 or so when using it in the ultrasonic cleaner.

I also got a gallon of Simple Green Extreme Aircraft and Precision Cleaner off Amazon for $14 shipped a few months ago. That explicitly states it's safe for aluminum. I haven't tried it yet.
I tried that here, but the copy they sent was pretty illegible.If you have any idea who did the survey, you can contact them and get a copy...they will charge you..but just a nominal fee
