Ice, Sponge, Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda), Cob ......

Wolvey - would you like to back me on my new idea for abrasive media?

Coffee grinds! Cheap, endless supply, enviro-friendly, smells good. Probably leaves a nice 1.5 mil profile depending on whether its drip or perc.

I've used sponge to blast off lead from steel. The sponge comes in different grades from mild to aggressive. It's lighter then other media's and produces virtually no dust other then what you’re blasting off.

I've used baking soda through a pressure washer to remove graffiti from split face concrete block. It works OK but clogs easily. I don't like the alkaline residue it leaves, especially around plants. I don't know, maybe it's good for them. I'm not a gardener

I've considered dry ice blasting, but heard the equipment is expensive.

A crew used the dry ice blasting to strip down to bare metal ceiling joists in the fire dept a couple of weeks ago. Seems like it didn't take too long it was all done.

I intend to research it along with the soda blasting as well. Skimmed over an article talking about it in a magazine called 'Cleaner Times' not too long ago.

Used ice for a large proofer at Pepperidge Farm Bakery. Blasted to SSPC-10 and two coats of epoxy mastic. Still looks great after 10 years.
