    Brown Coolant bottle

    Thursday I filled my old coolant bottle up with bleach, left it for 4 days, drained it out yesterday and it looked the same.

    In conclusion, you can't bleach your coolant bottle white again.

    Dishwashers jet the water out, you do realise that?


    Failing that, just put it in the right way up instead of upside down...

    It looked ok from what I remember.

    2 days in the dish washer tablet and water.
    No difference but it did remove alot of the gunk from inside the tank.
    I was shocked at the amount of crap that came out and a little worried.

    Next?

    I'd be keen to give mine a clean if a way could be found so this is an excellent experiment!
    What about trying dishwasher tab and some water and chuck the bottle in the microwave for a bit?

    That wont work cause there is metal in the bottle.
    The switch, round the exit pipes and where the cap goes.

    Stain remover?

    you'll be surprised to know you can put metal in a microwave, so long as theres a conductive path between the chunks (water should do) and no sharp points you should get no arcing.

    I've microwaved spoons, forks, and even the metal foil takeaway dishes, they all work just fine.

    Buying a new one is too easy! lol. I'd have a play myself but don't have a spare. What about Petrol/white spirit/turps? Put some gravel in there too and a good old shake for a while, obviously making sure to get all the gravel out after.
