Did not work at all. I bought 4 gallons but took 3 back. I even mixed heavy and used a wire brush. I ended up using muratic acid.

Let's see what we can figure out! Rust-Oleum Clean & Etch For Concrete is an etching solution used to clean and degrease bare concrete surfaces to improve penetration and adhesion of coatings, paints, stains and sealants. When the diluted solution is applied to bare concrete and agitated with a stiff bristle broom, it will begin to fizz. This fizzing will only on bare concrete, if there is no fizzing that indicates the concrete is sealed.

It did what it was suppose to do! I do feel one gallon did not cover the areas in label. But over all I feel the product worked well.

Very good
Finally got tired of waiting for the correct temps and humidity per instruction and just had a few hours where it was correct weather. Had used the Cleaner and Degreaser on my 20 year old floor the day before and looked pretty great, now time fot the clean & etch so I can finish with the lacquer I wanted to finish with. Got it mixed half product and half water then apply to floor let it sit and foam, moved around with a scrub brush then let it sit till foaming gone then I did it again to make sure got as good as I could, Wash down the floor with water like 4 times. Now is time to let dry. Had a electrical job to do so went and did that. Next will be the Lacquer. When dry was looking pretty good

Seems to work
The Rust-Oleum Concrete Etch and Cleaner is highly recommended before using a Rust-Oleum concrete coating. This product will clean and prepare the concrete to prevent the coating from peeling off. So far it has worked well but I will try to update the review in the future when the coating had more time in the summer heat and winter snow. Since the product is supposed to etch concrete I highly recommend wearing some protective gear when working with it.

Can you hear the fizz. It's cleaning the concerte for certain .
The is my first time I ever clean a concrete slab of any kind. The Rust-Oleum 1 gallon Concrete Etch and Cleaner did the job in helping clean and prep for my coating the Tan Granite grip I Applied to the slab. While cleaning the slab I used a razor blade scraper and painter's tool to easilty remove old paint drops and stains on the concrete porch. Be sure to use a respirator or mask (N95) it does have a bit of an odor. It's easy to apply to the concrete and fast acting. I like the fact its not harmful to plants or grass. Once the concrete dries you can feel the roughness and see sections of open pores.

Getting ready for Granite Grip paint!
My finish coat is BEHR Tan Granite Grip Interior/Exterior Concrete Paint. My plain Jane front porch has a plain concrete finish and we are tired of it. So we decided to try something new, a Granite look with no slip. Mix this product was simply adding contents to a gallon of water. I used a straw brush to scrub the floor and than rinsed it twice and let it dry twenty four hours. Concrete Etch and Cleaner is a cleaner and etch combination that opens the pores of concrete surfaces to allow coatings to penetrate and achieve a proper bond. A true alternative to muriatic acid, it creates the same profile but without the dangerous chemicals, or harsh odors.

Pressure wash or scrub after application
Works well, but be sure to pressure wash or scrub with a stiff bristle brush while rinsing after application.

We use this to clean and prepare our storage unit floors for painting with a 1 part epoxy paint when our tenants in our 5 older buildings move out. Works GREAT and the paint sticks sticks easily and lasts.
