Acid Magic Vs Muriatic Acid
Acid Magic is basically muriatic acid (BUY ON AMAZON) with unknown strength that is buffered using proprietary phosphate containing buffers that can, but don’t necessarily, breakdown into phosphates. It may also contain a cationic surfactant in it that suppresses fumes.
Muriatic acid isn’t as bad as people paint it. One just needs to be careful when handling it. Personally, I consider a bottle of bleach to be way more dangerous than MA.
