    Talking DIY making your own products

    Hello fellow detailers

    has anyone tried making there own degreaser using alkaline salts like in Australia there is a product called tricleanium has anytried mixing that product with hot water to dissolve the salts and try it as a degreaser ?

    Also as a fabric cleaner and a multi purpose cleaner has anyone tried using dish soap and laundry powder in hot water and heavily diluted in hot water to dissolve the granular stuff in the powder? For Americans I think itís called tide

    if I was to try this I would use an old 20lt drum put 10 litres of boiling water in to the drum with a tap attached then add a hose and fuel filter (cheap 4$ paper one ) to catch the granules and so it donít clog your triggers up


    Any ways cheers

    Not to kill your hopes and dreams but It comes down the trusting the chemists that make the products of the company you believe in

    These are full time chemical companies making specific products that should be safe used as directed for what they are intended for

    DIY making your own products

    Sure your ideas will work but perhaps only for certain cleaning applications and due to the lack of particular surfactants and high alkalinity, may cause significant damage to materials/substrates.

    A good place to start is the Tricleanium MSDS mate: http://www.tricleanium.com.au/docs/tricleanium_msds.pdf

    Note that trisodium phosphate has a pH of 12 making it highly alkaline. Watch out when using it on fabrics as it can cause yellowing which needs to be neutralised if you plan on ridding it.

    IMO:
    If a person has the wherewithal to “desolve
    the salt”, as it were, from Tricleanium...
    then they would surely already know if
    trisodium phosphate (TSP)-based products
    have “degreasing”-ability, or not.


    Note:
    I only use dish soap; and granular (or liquid)
    laundry detergent for their intended purposes.
