    Muriatic Acid for cleaning rusty gas tanks. It can be harmful, so use safety gear. I coat inside the tank afterward with 2 stroke gas, because the bare metal will rust quickly before you refinish the outside of the tank. At the end of the day, I enjoy a glass of Jim Beam on ice.

    Denatured alcohol. Good for wiping things down. Tried cleaning roofing patch off of a trowel with brake cleaner, it hardly touched it. Next in line was gasoline, it dissolved the tar off in seconds. 30 wt oil. I keep some in old contact lens solution bottles around the shop. Perfect when you only need a drop or two to slick something up.

    Tuff Stuff Multi-Purpose Foam Cleaner. This works great for cleaning everything in the shop.

    It's not just for auto upholstery...it works on everything I've tried it on. It dissolves all the years old grime...spray it on maybe rub it in with a brush and, it actually wipes away.

    Anyone try 50/50 acetone/ATF for a rust breaker? I've been meaning to mix up a batch to try but always forget to pick up the acetone when I'm at the store...

    That is part of or the entirety of the "homebrew" recipe for Liquid Wrench aka penetrating fluid for rusty nuts and bolts. I'm lazy so I always buy the off-the-shelf aerosol concoctions--there's people who are utterly loyal to PB Blaster which I have yet to try...

    I doubt it has any rust removing qualities.

    Yes, for years. It is fully head and shoulders above any others. I never mention it due to the flammable nature. I store it in a small, clean, dry glass bottle that pickled cocktail onions are sold in. Outdoor use only. And mix-up only what I need for a few days. Labeled appropriately as well.
    Gibbs is a distant second, followed by Kroil, another I can’t remember, then the pack.
    Hope this helps,

    When I lived in Texas, my favorite was the one that kept us up all night, playing Backgammon and drinking a case of beer.
