I've used it. It's nice and cheap. I still prefer oxi-free when I can find the large tubs.

You're fine. My only concern was the scent. I just rinsed really well.

Yep. You're fine with any unscented oxy clean out there.
I don't know if a scented version would cause you any real problems but I wouldn't use it.

I'm curious to see if you think it effects your brew in any way. I saw that too and went with the oxi clean anyways. Let em know once you've cleaned with it and brewed following

I use that brand and have not had any adverse effects on my brews. I often fill my better bottle with it and forget about it for a week or two until I brew next. Never had any off smells or discoloration of the bottles.
