Re: Heads suck

Its been 37 months Ram, and anything would hit the spot. You realy DONT know how lonely life is when a bottle of wine hits the spot and the cork isnt big enough.

In Turkey, there is a product called Porgaz, which dissolves the uric acid crystals. It's also great for dissolving barnacles off bronze props. Its sold as a bathroom cleanser that removes scale and lime. I think it's a weak acid. Vinegar also seems to work.

Fruity wines with a fine bouquet, lively body, a snappy label, even a plastic cork might appeal to post modernists, but the classic vintage has no rivals,

Now I want to pop my cork, but we know how vulgar that is. A noble vintage needs no introductions and certainly doesnt make a fuss

At the outset, this vintage is "private stock". So my compliment to Anjou on a delightful job of word smithing, is without ulterior motive

Well done madam, me thinks the lady is well armed!

Thank you Sir, for I am sure you are a connoisseur and well versed in the appreciation and wonderment of speciality.

Re: Heads suck

Leaving fine wines alone for the moment, the various Toolstation type shops in the UK sell 5L of concrete cleaner (Hydrochloric acid) for about £7 last time I bought it. Brings up stainless steel props a treat dissolving all manor of stuff. Does a good job of turning bronze a nice shade of pink too, so much better than that green colour

Vulgarity exists only in one’s mind, Real Nobility and love have no limitations or vintage.. drink now of the vintage of love that is before you, and you may discover yourself and the love you have never known

Re: Heads suck

I don't really feel muriatic acid is more expense than vinegar on a usage amount basics and it isn't really very expensive to start with. I keep bot on the boat as each has their use.

On the other hand, if you are flushing with fresh water and still are getting a lot of build up I had to ask; what you been drinking/eating there girl?

Re: Heads suck

Anjou,

What ever thread you start, I read. I am never disappointed.

Come over to the dark world of compsters and these problems will forever be behind you...

(just make sure to use the right medium)
