Not being a chemist all some of us have is the recommendation from others. I have just started using Star Tron so in time I'll know if it works or not.

There seems to be a body of evidence that they have something. The trouble is, there are no standard tests for "cleaners." Stabilizers, yes. Cleaners, no ASTM or other recognized tests that I know of - I am not certain of that.
