Questions Muriatic Acid

Post by gamer87 »

If I use Muriatic Acid for bathroom cleaning will this acid vapor evaporate and run through my house and deposit in electronic appliances and metal parts initiating corrosion oxidation?

Of course it will. Who has the crazy idea to use this acid for cleaning the bathroom. It will etch also your metal parts like taps, sinks, etc. in the bathroom.
I think for this purpose cleaners are on the market, which are not so aggresive.

Mine has not written concentration but 37 or 38% is a lot? generates steam that spreads throughout the house depositing in all electronics and corroding metals?
