I just purchased 1L of Ali Brite from our local auto accessory store in clermont [opposite the downtown servo]for $18 i asked the lady owner why it is so hard to get else where and she said she didn't know why and that she has no trouble getting it and keeps it mainly for cleaning gold.Can someone tell me if i use it undiluted,or water it down.?

Straight out of the bottle, but first read the safety use notice on the bottle, and follow that. But you can use it straight on gold.
