    You know how it is when you lean back too far in your chair and almost fall backwards, but save yourself at the last second? I feel like that all day.

    That's fantastic! Man, now I just need to get an air compressor...

    I wonder what would happen if you just filled the carbs with baking soda and water...? Does it even need that air pressure?

    Brilliant idea, for sure. When I first saw the link, I thought "Soda Pop??? How the hell is that going to clean carbs?" Lol.

    AFAIK, the soda has a very fine sandpaper effect when blasted from an air compressor, that's does the cleaning, not the chemical reaction of soda on metal.

    Like sandblasting but finer.

    I suppose some Mento's in a bottle of Coke could be considered soda blasting

    yeah, that's some "outside of the box" thinking...baking soda box, thanks for posting, I'll probably use this technique at some point.

    do you think this could be used to strip paint? I'm not a painter so i would not know the first thing but if i could save some money on prep work....then id take the paint off before taking the helmet/fairing/anything for primer and paint...

    Thoughts? i feel so dum in this area....

    The "Soda" is used more to clean dirty parts as seen in the link. If you try it for paint removal you will dull the paint down a little/lot but it will take forever to remove it. Sandpaper would be a LOT cheaper and a whole lot less messy

    Interesting thread. Of course I heard of sandblasting, bead blasting, walnut shell blasting (from TV shows); but never soda blasting.
    I know that sand blasting can be very messy work, so I never want to do that again.
    A gentler, less messy way of cleaning things--I am intrigued!
    A pound of Arm & Hammer can be had for about $1.15, not too bad.
    I know I'll definitely do something this summer with what I learned from this thread!
