Cleaning stainless

is not my favorite task. I recently heard about and tried a new product for removing rust from stainless. Amazing results without rubbing. NO elbow grease, just brush on and wait. WOW!

I have no interest in the company, just sharing good news.

It looks encouraging, but I couldn't find what the active ingredient is. Inevitably, whatever you use on your boat is going to end up in the water.

GENERALLY RECOGNIZED AS SAFE

Here are a few reasons why you should read the ingredients before trusting the FDA with your health:

ACETONE
FORMALDEHYDE
CYCLOHEXANE
DENATURED ALCOHOL
HYDRAZINE

All of these are put in food in the USA, according to the FDA WEBSITE. Also, many of these would kill you if you drank a glass of them.

Hi,

My name is Allen. I am one of the founders of Spotless Stainless. The active ingredient is Citric Acid. You most likely consume it everyday. However, I would not not suggest drinking Spotless Stainless. I am sure it will not taste very good. It is very safe in the marine environment.

cheers

Unsafe products

It is a good idea to be careful but you can also die from drinking too much water.

Could you accidentally cause hyponatremia though? Maybe if you are a baby, or a marathon runner, this is a realistic risk. However, if you are a regular guy, you are not likely to have this problem. Sit down and drink a gallon of water in 5 minutes. I dare you. A glass of formalin, however, could be fatal.

Seems like a great product, btw. Relatively safe to use, and not particularly harmful to the oceans.

Impressive looking photos. Hopefully Practical Sailor or another publication will do a product investigation to see if it's as good as the photos seem to indicate. I'll buy it in a heart beat if it works as good as the photos indicate.

If Spotless Stainless does not work for you..

Hi,

If Spotless Stainless does not work for you we will refund the cost of the product. Currently you can purchase for 25% off. All we ask is that you please follow the instructions and if there is a problem send us photos and tell us the temperature when you used the product..

We had 2 cases where boat owners did not get expected results when they first used Spotless Stainless. After we saw the photos and suggested a course of action they got the results expected..
Customer Reviews- Spotless Stainless Removes Rust, Protects Stainless Steel is one case. The other we hope to have the photos on our website this week.

If you are not happy with Spotless Stainless for any reason we will gladly return the cost of the product.

Disclosure - I am associated with Spotless Stainless
cheers
