We use sulfamic acid to clean grout off tile. You can buy it in a powdered form at HD for about five or six bucks. I haven't tried it on the boat, but I bet it would work as well as muriatic. I know for a fact that prolonged exposure to even the fumes from muriatic acid will tarnish stainless steel. Another tile guy found out the hard way, when he had to hire a company to come in and grind all the tarnished SS table legs in a McDonald's kitchen. I had a couple guys that I was sort of subbing a part of a job to. Those idiots used muriatic to clean the grout in the restrooms, which had brass fixtures. Just the fumes from that cost me a bundle. The only time I use it nowdays is when we are doing pavers outside, which, just by chance my boys happened to be doing today in Jax. Hot as hell!

I agree. I have used Lime Away for years and it works great and has not caused and problems with the finish or scratches, etc. Although it does cause burns to the skin and the occasional passing out from all the toxic fumes....kidding

The question was "What works...?". I answered it, and issued the appropriate caveats, warnings and precautions. Use whatever you want - I will too.

The rest of the discussion is for ChemistryOnly.com.

The lake that I go to has alot of particals in the water and if it drys, CLR won't hardly touch it and requires a lot of elbow grease. I have tried most of the stuff you have, and it just does work that great with the water we deal with. I haven't tried BioKleen Hull cleaner. Muriatic acid just seems to harsh. PS; Don't use Muratic on your cement driveway, or you will be sorry.

Most of us at the lake use this stuff and it works better that I can even tell you about. Our hulls will turn yellow over time and I have spent countless hours with a buffer on previous boats. Spray this on, and and the yellow is gone, the white buildup on the prop and out drive literally runs off. Absolutely NO scrubbing. I bought Ringo from an OSO member a couple of years ago and it works great also.
Kem-tech won't sell Safe AR Hull Cleaner to individuals, but call them and they will tell you who is a local dealer. I have bought some of this from Scheels sports before.
The marine version isn't on their web site also, and they say it is a different blend. Hope this helps.

The best is Sno-bowl for cleaning, then wipe down with CRC.
