Acid cleaning is the process of using certain types of acids in a concentrated solution in order to clean certain items that are normally difficult to clean. The process of acid cleaning will depend on the type of acid being used and the reason for the treatment or situation involved. For example you may only have the need for mild acid cleaning. In a situation like this an acetic or citric acid might be used.
These types of acids are ideal for cleaning households and are an ideal solution for treating hard water spots in the bathrooms. These types of acid cleaners are also ideal for cleaning other materials such as porcelain and removing rust stains from some metals.
There are also stronger acid cleaning products as well. These are used when the stains are resistant to the more gentle acid cleaning process. These types of acids may include: sulfuric acid, sodium bisulfate, muriatic acid, phosphoric and many others. There are situations which may call for using a combination of these acids.
