Clear Clear - Food for Thought.

Y'all might want to read this posting from Frantz Art Glass on the Perfect Clear. They are suggesting pickling the glass to get it really clean.

Haven't tried this yet, but it's an interesting thought. I have noticed that the formula in household glass cleaners has changed in the past year, making them so that they actually make the glass worse. I think it'd the swithch to the "green" cleaning ingredients.

Could it be that simple? Will resellers offer pre-pickled glass?

Would just soaking in vinegar do it?

Worth trying anyway. Hmmm - now to chase down some pickle.

    Wow, wouldn't that be something -- if vinegar and water actually cleaned clear glass rods for a perfect clear result?!? Ha, I would be LMAO (texting lingo for "laughing my a__ off").

  2. Don't know if you've chased down pickle yet but if you look in a pool/spa store you can find stuff for bringing the PH down (you're looking for sodium bisulphate). It's much less expensive than Sparex (especially if you have to mail order it) and often easier to find.

  3. ah - thanks - I had forgotten that little trick - especially as I have a pool and have that stuff here already.
