So this oxiclean that you guys use to clean your kegs, bottles, equipment. Is this the same stuff billy mays sold? In the tub that says "versitile" on it? I will buy some at kmart if that's the case, its $10 a big tub. What about oxiclean free?

Go for Oxiclean free. I use it for everything and it does a great job. Whether it be better bottles, fermentors or kegs and lines. Just make sure you give everything a good rinse after using it.

I lol'd at the store about that picture.

SWMBO was like "Just buy it and ask later" but I figure, if I have the resources to ask that moment, I am going to! This stuff is way cheaper than the cleaner my LHBS tries to sell me.

I got sad when I saw the Billy Mays picture though

From the latest news it appears Oxiclean wasn't the only powder Billy Mays was fond of.
