Just be certain that the cleanliness you desire is worth the etching
it'll do to bare metal surfaces. If you like the look of the bare aluminum
that's on the heads, IM's etc., be prepared, it'll look chalky and etched
when you're done, unless you literally wash it off as it hits (with TONS
of water). So, if you want the bare alum look, look for other cleaning 
solutions first.
