I wouldn't gargle with dish soap water either :)

I get your point, but as things go, TSP is pretty benign. I mean, yes, its major use is as a detergent, but it's also used as a food additive (acidity regulator.)

I’ve had my mouth washed out with soap several times so that didn’t worry me too much either :LOL: :laugh::LOL: :laugh:

I was mostly thinking of the report from someone in this thread that the TSP damaged the finish on their granite countertop. I’ve been doing my cleaning with it outside on a plastic table, and it’s hot as hell here, so I was happy to do something inside for a change. The wife would def kick my ass if I jacked up the countertop in the kitchen to clean poker chips. I’m already on thin ice as it is with my relatively new obsession. She just hasn’t figured out what to do about it yet. :ninja:

I have a 22L ultrasonic that'll be setup in a few weeks. Lol. I'm tired of barrels, gimmie racks!

I'm not kidding here, but are you sure that's going to be big enough for an entire rack? I can imagine that it's going to be harder to agitate the chips in that size, and if you dump in a hundred of them they're going to suction together.

I guess what I'm saying is that I think you need to live stream your first time use of it.

You should know by now, I can agitate anything at anytime......

For those of you who have actually done this, how much of a process is this going to be? My salad spinner and TSP came in and my wife said WTF are you doing now.

When I get a new rack in that's really dirty, I can usually set everything up, clean them, set them out to dry, and clean up the ultrasonic within 1 hour.

Two questions:

1. Can I just pour the dirty tsp water down the drain after cleaning?
2. How much do I have to worry about the tsp water destroying anything around the cleaner (countertop, walls, etc).

I pour it down the drain.
I think there are some people here who said there was a reaction between the TSP and their countertops. Personally, I never saw any kind of reaction and I was splishing and splashing all over the place. But after reading that, I decided to start using it outside.

Since your wife is already giving you side-eye over the U/S and salad spinner, you don't want to get into the dog house over ruining the kitchen. Best to lay out towels all around the wet zone.

Today I got a little U/S 2.5ltr with 60 Watt.

A few days ago, I got some really “Juicy” HSC 1s from @lewan , so I had the ideal test objects for my first cleaning attempts.

I had the chips in the U/S at 42 degrees Celsius for 1 minute, then cleaned them briefly with a sponge and finally gave them a quick finish with a magic eraser.

I am very satisfied with the result!
