Just bought the $70 Harbor Trash Ultrasonic Cleaner and the instruction manual is garbage. I also purchased the white powder cleaner solution from Harbor Freight as well only to read that it isn't recommended to clean aluminum.
So, what I'm looking for is tips for use and what's the best cleaning solution. I've read that using distilled water is better than tap and that people run their cleaners up to 30 minutes prior to cleaning parts to get rid of any gases in the water.
On this forum, people have stated using Simple Green. Are you guys diluting this at the ratio on the bottle, or are you using it straight? Are there cleaners out there that work better than others?
I've done some experimenting last night using a junk carb and dirty pennies, and the results were poor. Also, my cleaner has an option for heating the water, but the manual doesn't state when or why to use it. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks gurus!
