I tried this product today for the first time. I had a couple small parts in it for about two hours, with no effect, so I decided to leave them in overnight, like it say might be needed. my curiosity got the best of me after 3 more hours, so I checked them. I was amazed at how the stuff works! It took some nasty stuff off.

I have a couple more pieces in it until morning. If it works like it has so far, they should be nice and clean.

Guess I might be painting some stuff tomorrow, after all.....

Wish I had about 20 gallons of the stuff.

The website lists several places to get it. Orschlens, Gemplers, even Harbor Freight. Orschlens is the cheapest place I found - right at $20 for a gallon jug.

i am not sure how much that stuff is but Feed grade molassas mixed with plain tap water 9 gal water to 1 gal molasses in any size vat barrel or bucket you need does the trick and is pretty dang cheap keeps for six months or better and continuiously works. here is a few pics of what it done to some parts in just eight days of soaking in it. Image the hood before it went into the tank of molassas water.
Image after i took it out and sprayed it off with a pressure washer.
no sanding or grinding for me just a short wait and then ready for paint.all those other peices were in the tank as well. i took conveyor belt and made an oval shape out of it and lined it with a tarp measured the area of it and started pouring water into it and mixing the molasses in and then put my parts in and let them soak you don't have to ever remix it once it is mixed the first time the molasses stays in solution and never comes out of solution from the water so it doesnt seperate and settle to the bottom. i made that batch in may and i just put some of my parts to my B in it and this is what the tank looked like after i brought it out one before i washed it off and the other after. you can tell which one . Image
Image cleans the inside of the tank as well when you submerge it.

Yeah, I've tried the molassas, but the evapo-rust works a LOT quicker, and is also re-usable. For the bigger parts, molassas would be better - if you can wait, but for small parts, Evapo-rust works better.

I had some from last fall I used (Evapo-rust), I had it in a small bucket with a lid. I noticed about March that the lid was not on tight. I added water to it, and put a couple parts in to see if it was still good. Left them overnight, rinsed them off, and they were ready for paint!
