Default Sun Oxygen Cleaner

Anyone use Sun Oxygen Cleaner to clean bottles, buckets and carboys? I just recently changed to this because it's way cheaper then Oxiclean. The only difference is I don't get any soap like suds.

I heard some one mention it on the forum saying its as good as oxiclean. i just bought some also and its a lot cheaper than oxiclean. hey but when i put it a bucket with water i do get a lot of foam. but i have yet to clean any of my brewing equipment with it.

I've used it for cleaning the carboy, buckets, and bottles. It works great, you can get a huge tub at Big Lots or the dollar stores for much less than Oxy, and I have not noticed any difference in its ability to do the job.

It's my go to. Love it. As far as the foam goes... add it to the water, not vice-versa.

It is sodium bicarbonate and sodium percarbonate - oxygen bleach - and exactly what oxyclean free is without the additives - yes even oxyclean free has additives. Sun cleaner works great on its own and is really cheap, I buy(ninja edit) 6 tubs at a time.

You can get it even cheaper if you mix your own by buying bulk baking soda and bulk sodium percarbonate online from a chemicals supplier. But that seems like too much work for me.

To make home made PBW I do the following:

Mix 1 part sun oxygen cleaner with 1 part Tri Sodium Phosphate(TSP) or the substitute both of which you can buy in any hardware store.

It works great to clean brewing gear and I have even used it to get that nasty odor out of running clothing.

Just my 2 cents. Cheers.

+1 same stuff. That's what I use and I recall buying my large tub of it at Wallyworld. Cheaper than Oxyclean and works the same. I use it in conjuction with TSP(trisodium phosphate) and let things soak in pretty hot water for at least a few hours. It seems to do the trick.

I use it for all my cleaning. Works great. Removes even the most stubborn krausen rings.

As far as my nose can tell, yes. I use this all the time to clean my brewing equipment and it works great!
