Do I spray it on? Will it hurt the hand pumped sprayer? Do I have to scrub it? Do I have to neutralize afterwards with baking soda water or just plain water? I can't find instructions. There's no video.

March 24, 2015
I have a glass aquarium with white cloudy substance on it that only goes away when wet, will this product work on breaking that substance down and removing it?

I have tried just white vinegar which cleaned the rest of the glass not the white cloudy substance.

This product will etch the concrete; that's what it was designed for. It's not a concrete cleaner, and the vapors, even through they're far less than our regular Muriatic Acid puts off, could still be too dangerous to use indoors. If you need to clean the concrete use a concrete cleaner, not Muriatic Acid. If you need to etch the concrete so it will accept a sealer, use a less harsh acid like Klean Strip Phosphoric Prep & Etch.

No, it won't. It will most likely damage the black paint and the paint on the windows, but it's not designed to remove it. If the black paint is latex try using Mineral Spirits or Paint Thinner to remove it. Either of these are typically safe to use on painted surfaces temporarily.

I'm afraid Muriatic Acid wouldn't do anything for it. I would try plunging it up. If this doesn't work your best bet would be to remove the toilet to the outdoors and try blasting it out with a garden hose or possibly use a strong solvent to dissolve and loosen up the plastic tube.

it dilutes in water very quickly, and would probably not work very well. you would have to use a TON of muriatic acid especially at these low concentrations. would be better to just get some more specific unclogging solution, or a sewer snake.

Silestone recommends it, but this isn't an application that we've tested. Your best bet would be to give Silestone a call to make sure that you apply the Muriatic Acid properly. Try it in a small test area first.

No, the Muriatic Acid is caustic enough that it could discolor the marble. Before bying anything I would call the marble shower manufacturer to see what they recommend using to clean it. There are a lot of chemicals that can damage and/or discolor natural stone.

Acid will etch marble. I can picture the marble gone and the mildew still there, although probably both will be gone, the mildew only temporarily.

Use a product specific to killing mold and mildew and safe with calcareous surfaces such as marble.

Diluting an acid is dangerous. If you add water to acid, the surface will explode and undiluted acid will fly around. There is still a risk when done properly, adding the acid to water. There still can be splashing and violent reaction while mixing, but it's going to be diluted and by pouring slowly and smoothly you can minimize and control it.

It depends. If you're trying to clean the surface I would steer clear of Muriatic Acid and use a patio wash or perhaps an oxygen bleach like Oxy Clean. If you need to brighten the surface, here are the directions from the Muriatic Acid label: "Wear chemical-resistant gloves and chemical splash goggles. Remove all surface oil, grease, and dirt prior to using this product. BRIGHTENING CONCRETE, MASONRY, BRICK, STONE, GROUT AND HARD SURFACES: Dilute 12 ounces of Safer Muriatic Acid per gallon of water in a plastic sprinkling can or a plastic pump up sprayer. Gently stir with a non-metallic utensil. Apply evenly and spread with a broom to any missed areas. Allow to sit for 5 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly with water."
