This stuff works better than the chemical etchers and because it is non toxic it makes me feel better about it around my plants and dogs. Really cleaned up an old concrete garage floor so I could seal and paint it.

    Use at full strength
    Eco-Etch 1001 does not burn your skin or lungs. It gives texture and etches well if you do not dilute it - use at full strength. If you mix with water at the recommended dilution it works well with hard scrubbing and some elbow grease. Decent product if you don’t want harmful chemicals.

      Did a fair job
      I think it did a fair job of etching and cleaning basement floor. It certainly etched well and the odor was tolerable. Doesn’t do as good of a job as straight muriatic acid, but for what it is, it is effective.

        Free of fumes
        I used this to etch my basement floor. Regular acid etchers would have been too harsh to use in a basement. This one is not completely free of fumes, but they aren't that bad at all and they dissipate fairly quickly. Eco-Etch 1001 doesn't give you as deep an etch as the Hydro-Etch 1000, but it's adequate for most purposes.
          • Recommended
          I was skeptical because it sounded too good to be true - product that will etch concrete without any acid or smell. I decided to try this product to etch our driveway before applying the Siloxa-Tek 8500. This stuff cleaned and brightened the driveway so much so that it looks new. Awesome.

            Got the job done
            This stuff is not the strongest product on the market by any means, but if your doing some light cleaning or light etching, this is the stuff. It worked great, and got the job done.

              No fumes
              In comparison to regular acid there were no fumes to bother anyone’s nose or lungs. A+

                More green
                More green and not as harsh as traditional acid etchers. I used on an old shop floor in conjunction with the Micro-Degreaser 1100. The combination of the two products cleaned the floors, removed the oil spills and gave some texture so I can now apply a garage floor coating.

                  I love this product
                  I love this product. I had to etch a concrete garage floor to prepare to stain. This product is very easy to use if you follow the directions. It also gives a deep cleaning to the floor. This is completely non-toxic. No fumes or bad smell. Cleans up easy.

                    Did not kill my plants
                    Most importantly it did not kill my plants, works as advertised.
