View Full Version : Caustic Vs PBW

02-12-2016, 09:43 AM
So... my supplier has stopped selling any caustic products.

I have used and been happy with 5 Star LCC for the last couple years after they stopped carrying Starline. I have used PBW in the past and am considering going back to it and acid.

Feedback on long term use of PBW over caustic?

I use BIRKO's BruREze which is a very similar product and have used it in place of caustic for many years.

I have used PBW since 1993. It works. No complaints.

May be it is my water composition but PBW did not clean for me. It was fine if you needed to soak something overnight.
