RE: what is the active ingredient in dip-it® coffee maker cleaner

Normally, to find out what's in a product, you can do a google.com search of the prouct +msds, which stands for material safety data sheet. However, the Dip-It MSDS says the product is non-hazardous and thus exempt from revealing what it is.

Maybe someone with a chem background could deduce more from the MSDS.

Here is a link that might be useful: dip it msds

I have a package of Dip It on hand. It says :"Caution-skin and eye irritant. Contains sodium perborate, sodium carbonate, sodium silicate. Contains no phosphorous." I'm not a chemist or scientist, so I don't know what all those sodium things are. Isn't sodium/soda a salt?

Greywings, thanks for reference to MSDS. I knew this sort of thing must exist out there somewhere, I just didn't know what it was called.

There must have once been, or perhaps still are more than one dip-it as jannie's package contains no phosphorous and greywings link does. I have found links to two, perhaps different, coffee maker cleaners.

One dip-id product contains, or did contain, citric acid and sulfamic acid which are, or once were the workhourses in denture cleaners.
