Went to Lowes today to get the good stuff. They now have only "Klean-
Strip" brand muriatic acid, which has a bright green label that touts
it's environmental safety, and "low fumes". Of course, it doesn't list
the concentration. I figured it was diluted. Indeed, I see from the
web MSDS sheets that this stuff is "<25%" HCl, while the normal stuff
is >30%. Grainger seems to sell their own "Green Envy" stuff that's a
Environmental safety?? Yes, it may be low fumes, but it's also low
performance. For those who take deep breaths while bending over
muriatic acid, this is the stuff for you!
This, of course is the trend in all kinds of solvents and cleaners.
The solution to screwing the customer is dilution of the solution.
