I have yet to try the Green Wash with CH. Doug sent me some and I am in the process of letting the CH COMPLETELY settle. It's AMAZING how much sediment there is even after an intial straining and settling for about 5 days.
Now, as I understand it, CH and SH are incompatible. (After some checking,I think I may be wrong here) I added sodium bicarbonate to some CH once and the result was a crystal clear liquid that smelled contaminated, like the smell when acid is mixed in hypo. So I then mixed up some CH and added table salt to it,..and the same result happened,..crystal clear and smelled funny. I am no chemist by far,..but I think the salt,..whether it comes from baking soda, or liquid hypo is reacting with th calcium and I guess maybe softening the liquid?? Isn't this the reason salt is used in water softeners.

Although incompatible, I think if the right mix could be achieved adding CH to SH could prove effective,..sounds like alot of testing though. I was even think of just adding a "pinch" of table salt to the CH to get rid of a high percentage of the hazing. I don't know,..just brainstorming,...

I get it for 1.00 a gallon, I know it is the good stuff because I do not have to mix hot I keep it around 35 to 40 percent chem. Usually cleans in one shot with a few bumps here and there.

We use 30% SH ... not even close to the 50% on AC's chart. It's very fresh and bet I could even go down to 25% SH with great results.

Keep plants, shrubs and sod well irrigated before, during and after. Keep the vegetation happy...water, water and then water.

Heck... applying Scott's Weed and Feed to a lawn without watering it in, will burn it.

Yes AC I agree, a little while ago I mixed a very small amount of these two,..and it smelled contaminated just like the other sodium based "things" I tried. I wonder how long it takes to degrade it to a useless product?

Is there any way to determine if the SH is fresh other than apply it? Houston - 1.95/gal
