Diversol which I see mentioned warmly, is I believe also widely known as "Pink".
I recognise this is widely used, & considered very effective as a cleaner.
BUT.....as I understand it's composition, it contains chloride ion components, which are definitely NOT recommended for stainless steel kegs.

New here and great list. I did a search in this thread and didn't see anything but sorry in advance if I'm asking a question that's already been answer.

Are any of those cleaners/sanitizers bad for aluminum? I have an aluminum brew pot. I assume sanitizer is not required since it will be boiling the wort.

I use extremely hot water and rinse everything right after it's used. Oxyclean to remove labels. StarSan to sanitize. But I also rinse the StarSan off. A few batches have had some residual tastes from it.

Water and bleach when used appropriately works the best for me. Just make sure you rinse liberally and let air dry.
