I don't know about you, but if a household cleaner can dissolve a thumb sized lump of calcium in two seconds or clean a filthy penny in just one second I consider that more of "a danger to my very life should I use it" than something worth advertising.

Nothing allowed on the shelves of a supermarket should be able to disolve crap that fast. Its like the acid blood in Aliens.

yup. however you can get washing soda which is fairly caustic... a scary book to read is Cleaning yourself to Death!

See now its because of books like that that I avoid libraries. The temptation to spend hours of my life on something that dangerous would be too much.

I get to fondle them regularly, whats worse I get to borrow them, I so work in my ideal job!

Scarily enough I own a tonne of the ones I truly like. BTW I own a tonne of conspiracy theory stuff... do you want to borrow any?

Washing soda is wonderful stuff! Though why anyone might want to plunge their hands (or other body parts) into it, I can't think. Washing soda (in combination with scalding hot water) is for soaking the grill pan and dumping down the sink to clear the drain pipe.

This aint soda though, this is some new concoction designed to eat through metal and people.

Well, stop drinking it then.

If a doctor is going to tell you to stop drinking domestos he should really qualify the statement by maybe mentioning that other cleaning liquids are similarly prohibited.

Ah yeah, but if he stopped you doing everything that was bad for you then he'd put himself out of a job.

If I stopped doing what was bad for me I wouldn't be coming in to work in the mornings...
