Had a transmission leak on my driveway. The product said it would clean the spot. Did not phase it. Total waist of money. Would not recommend this to anyone.

Mel - The label does not state it will clean transmission fluid. We do not market this product as an oil, grease or transmission fluid cleaner. The label states to use a degreaser in those situations. DRYLOK® Etch is designed for etching masonry, stone, tile, and brick. It removes unsightly efflorescence (salt deposits) as well as excess mortar. We are sorry you did not understand the intended purpose of this product. wtuckerugl

This does the exact opposite. I used it to prep my block for applying Drylok and it brought even more salts to the surface, even in places that had none before. I followed all the directions to a T. I wire brushed the surface thoroughly, diluted this product properly, then rinsed well after. Now I am worse off than before. I wish I took before pictures, but the one attached was a section that has no noticeable efflorescence before treating. The other picture is a close up where you can almost see salt crystals formed on the surface. This product is almost salt-like in appearance which seems counter intuitive. I hope this saves someone else the time I wasted. Like all things these days, safer = less effective. Just use muriatic acid.

VTSean - This is a great example of not enough water used on the rinse step. If not fully rinsed with several water flushes, the acid will re-crystalize and look like efflorescence, exactly as you described.
We do offer a Liquid version that is much safer than muriatic acid. See our website for more information. wtuckerugl

    Not worth buying
    I purchased this to remove efflorescence deposits from a block wall in my basement before painting. I had high hopes when I was applying the solution to the wall as it was bubbling when I was brushing it on. After a 30 minute wait after application (per directions) I gave it a good rinse with the garden hose. I was severely disappointed when the blocks began to dry. Not only did it not work, it made some spots look worse. Should you buy this product, do follow the safety guidelines and ensure proper ventilation. I had a fan blowing down from the top of the stairs and then another fan pointed at the open window. It seemed to work fine.

    did the job--needed to etch inside my garage. Good news is its easy to use--just add 1 gallon of water to the powder. Had a bit of a smell but not as bad as muratic acid. Make sure you wear long pants as if it splashes it will burn you. It says it can treat up to 300 sq ft--I used the whole thing to treat about 75 sq ft. I let it sit for 20 minutes and then washed it out with a hose. Since it is an enclosed garage I wanted something with less of a smell.

    Worked as expected. Per my experience, this product is better than the Etch and Cleaner comes with Epoxy package kits. I used with old garage concrete floor after using the Etch packet included in Epoxy package kit. It is more effective and it cleaned up the concrete floor nicely. Believe me, lots of dirts! :)
