Default CLR can it clean your rig?

I just saw a comercial for CLR the cleaning agent and I thought "Man I wonder if that could get rid of rust in a stem?" In the commercial the lady used it to clean a coffee *** so I'm assuming it's safe but I'm curious if this has been tried on a hookah before? Or is it just too sketchy?

Sounds bad to me but some one has to be a guinney pig. If it contains any form of chlorine it turns to fosien gas when burnt witch is the nerve gas used in the world wars witch is a by product of burning chlorine vapor i belive. The same is true with r12 and r134 refrigerant AC leaks and running cars usually = monster headakes and shakes. trust me Ive experianced this and its no fun I would just stear clear. but if it works im game the steam on my km has changed to some funkey colors, as long as there is no chlorates involved.

your right chlorine gas is what hitler used in his gas chambers in the death camps but thats besides the point its also water soluble which means if you rinse it out and scrub it really good you should be ok

not to be offtopic, but Nazis used carbon monoxide (comes off the charcoal we use btw), and Zyklon B

Lemon juice and vinegar mixed are supposed to be an excellent rust remover. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to try CLR. It rinses off well, but I'd make SURE I rinsed it very well in hot water. I use a product called Lemishine in our dishwasher, there's a warning not to use it on aluminum, but I would think (since it's like uber concentrated lemon) it would do a great job of removing rust. I just wouldn't let it sit for long. Might be risky though considering the warning.

it also has epa certifications IIRC (they were touting that a lot lately)

honestly as long as you wash it well and if your really worried run something through to neutralize any residue (pull out the basic chem book, use base on acid and acid on base)

as to how it will work, crl gets rid of rust STAINS its not going to de rust metal

Yes you can use, CLR to clean off the deposits, just make sure there is no CLR residue left when u go to smoke. Have used it before. Notice they use it in coffee pots and other things of that nature.

Not to be offtopic, but Zyklon B is not toxic, and it was used for disinfecting clothes.

I used it to clean my first hookah, and oxy-clean oh man you should have seen all the crap that came off of it. But of course clean it well before using. Since it was my pumpkin i stuck it in the dishwasher with the oxy-clean man all the rust disappeared for a good 6 months then i trashed.

I've used it on my Chinese rigs before. Works alright. Make sure to soak/rinse it off real good.

invoking hitler makes you lose at conversation, unless the topic is ww2 or german history...

I just used CLR in a squirt bottle on mine, I could see rust all over the purge valve once the bearing was removed, and I could see it start to form in the hose port. Squirted some in there, shook it around a few times, let it sit for about 30-45 seconds and rinsed it out with piping hot water. Didn't smell any CLR or anything, and it virtually removed any rust stains I could see within seconds. I'm going to let it dry overnight and then wash it again with hot water tomorrow before work so I can smoke afterwards.
