Default Best boat cleaner?

Hey guys,

I made a quick video showing a little comparison between the two best cleaners Iíve found.
Are there any other good ones Iíve missed?

$10 a GALLON. Get there just about 8am, you can probably find a day laborer who’ll do the work for $20 more.

Muratic Acid- found at HomeDepot / Lowe's for very ittle $$$ per gallon. Does same thing as the video shows.

BTW; If you need to use a brush, get one with a pole. further away from breathing any of that stuff the better, I also use a cheap $10 chemical sprayer to apply chem's to the boat bottom.

Link to the MSDS.... If you find the sheets for the stuff in your video, it’ll probably be very similar.

Muratic acid @ $6 a gallon in a 1 gallon pump garden sprayer., Spray on rinse off VERY WELL and don't get it on bare aluminum

The Works or Sno Bowl toilet cleaner also work just as well using the same method and the fumes are much less.
dykstra and 93 shooter like this.

my mom was just saying the same thing this morning. She did say that if you mix water into the acid instead of the acid into the water, it creates a gas that can kill you.
I havenít fact checked her yet but it sketched me out a bit.

That chem sprayer is a great idea too, Iíll grab one today.

Bleach and ammonia can wipe you out. Learned that at a restaurant when I was a kid. Thought I was being smart. LOL.

So can some brake cleans / brake cleans that haven't evaporated yet and you hit the same area with a welder. I know of two people it sent to the hospital. One didn't come back.
