My foil seems unaffected. Eat aluminum - how do you make Simple Green do this? Snopes says nothing on the subject. Simple Green PROMISES a response within 72 hours.
I'll be interested to hear what they say. I use Simple Green often, because it gets stuff clean without damaging it. When doing the concours circuit, I discovered a lot of stuff that WOULD eat stuff, but never Simple Green. Castrol Cleaner, for example, I discovered would remove the paint from the underside of a greasy Jaguar bonnet. Good thing I had touchup paint. Easy Off also makes good paint remover and it WILL eat aluminum - and pretty quick.
Since the graphic at right is much larger than the solid info, I thought this was also a good opportunity for a few engineer jokes:
To the optimist, the glass is half full, to the pessimist, the glass is half empty.
To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
Q: What is the difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers?
A: Mechanical Engineers build weapons and Civil Engineers build targets.
Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
