I need to try some. What do I need to be concerned about? Stainless, glass? Yes or no?
I just cleaned tile in a nice home that was just cleaned by someone else. The other company ruined the stainless steel refrigerator...and the tile grout. I'm thinking whoever did that job originally didn't follow the mixing instructions very well as it even rusted out the buttons on a couch. Can't imagine working with that in the air.
I bought a gallon on Mike's recommendation but I will be using it on bad commercial...around urinals and hard water areas only.

It worked total wonders on Porcelain, metal fixtures, glass and grout in a shower today.

Hardly any odor too.


I thought I'd be polishing the glass for an hour or two. Doodle Bug and this stuff and it just melted right off

The elves cleaned a shower with Viper Renew once. The following morning, all the stainless fixtures had a coating of brown rust, even though they had been rinsed well.

I went back over everything with Barkeeper’s Friend and all the rust vanished, never to return.

Another hack, if you have any Ultraseal around it makes a dandy stainless steel polish.

I thought acid does not cause rust, just caustics stuff? Since acid is used to remove rust?

We use a product from spartan chemical called foamy q and a.

1/2 quart makes 300 dollars in a glass shower clean.

Need an acid for tile And grout though and will try this one out.
Foamy Q&A is my go to as well.

I did get a sample gallon of ******* Lo-Test that I may try in a shower next week. I did a light clean for a new tile install this week and it worked great.

The Prochem acid does work well, but it stinks and I only use it if I have to , especially around fixtures. I’ve been using commercial soft scrub for showers and it works extremely well without having to worry about messing anything up, you can scrub it on, leave it dwelling while you set up hoses and not worry about hurting a thing! It does such a good job that after I finished a job someone giving an estimate at the home I was working in asked if the 30 year old counter top I had just cleaned was new tile.
