Default Oxiclean?

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.
