I've heard of this and was going to try it the next time, as the cleanser I used to love is no longer available.

Have used Cascade dishwasher on really hard to clean refrigeration coils at dad's butcher shop when I was a kid. The AC guy used it and I copied him for that stuff and now think it should work on an automotive radiator system. Can't be any more aggressive than the Prestone cleanser that required as the final step the addition of a neutralizer to kill the acidic cleanser.
