I don't know anything about the Eastwood product. I haven't read the Picklex instructions lately. With Picklex, I don't wipe it off unless I get it too thick. It may sit overnight or for months, when I am ready to paint I just scuff all the white residue I can get off. I always use wax and grease remover. It does not interfere with Picklex. Picklex is not a "acid wash" and other than wiping the excess off, it does not need to be removed while damp. I don't remember the damp cloth thing as Picklex is not waterproof and is effective as long as it is not exposed to water. The instructions say it can be painted over without being removed. Regardless I don't like to paint over excess residue so I scuff as much residue as I can get off then paint. Instructions for phosphoric acid products are often exaggerated, and as far as I'm concerned not accurate--just use common sense.

Not trying to be a wise guy but Picklex is 10% phosphoric acid.

I know that--I like it because it is a relatively weak acid compared to others that are advertised. However, the name is or used to be Picklex 20, I thought the 20 meant 20% P. I used to work in a lab and used the real thing, concentrated acids, and diluted them to fit what I was doing.
