When you ordered green aplle before, you can use the msds sheet and look it up from there.

Kind of like creating BBQ sauce. Know the base and go from there.

IF you are in a Pinch for a quick and dirty cover up of the smell of bleach, here is what you can do today.  Go look for some Pine Oil, as pure as possible. There are several cleaners that contain Pine Oil, if you can't find it pure. Look for whatever Pine Oil cleaner has the highest Pine Oil concentration. I found one at some Dollar Store once that was 20 percent Pine Oil !!!!!!!!!
Now, Pine Oil is not water soluble, so we must make it so! We do this with RUBBING ALCOHOL and a surfactant, preferrable Apple Butter (Myristamine) or Ammonyx LO (Lauramine Oxide) , but in a pinch, any surfactant like dish or liquid laundry soap will work, although it will eat your chlorine. You want to make a 5 gallon bucket of this for a 225 gallon tankI had at the time. I used 8 bottles of the pine oil cleaner, 8 16 oz bottles of rubbing alcohol, and 8 big bottles of Yellow Ajax dish soap. I mixed all the chit together real good, and dumped it into the 300 gallon tank. That chit was smokin, and it smelled like a bathroom mopped with Pine Sol. Honestly, it cleaned like a mo fo too, and hid the smell, somewhat. The Primary smell was that of Pine Sol, with a hint of bleach! I told the customers "we have to use a LITTLE bleach to kill the chit" roof cleaning
Green Appple is better,  Pine Oil always leaves an oil slick in your tank cry On the next fill up of the tank, we poured rubbing alcohol on the oil slick, added more Ajax, added water, then filled with chlorine. Again,, it masked the smell somewhat. Once I was out of that subdivision, we went back to normal. I flushed the oil out of my Tank, and went back to our normal mix.

I would MUCH rather teach what I know. I know Green Apple is expensive, so i am looking at some alternatives. They may NOT be chlorine compatable, but consider this ? IF they do the trick when you need them,so what ? make up only what you neeed, clean the roof, make up some more ! We have dual 300 gallon tanks, cant afford to let our roof cleaning mix go bad. But for the newer guys cleaning a few roofs in a day, it will be OK.

Here is some more info on dissolving essential oils into water!

What Helps Dissolve Fragrance Oil Into Water?

Fragrance oil needs another solvent to help it mix with water.

Water is a natural solvent that dissolves many substances like salt into it. Unfortunately, not all substances dissolve in water, including oils. Fragrance oil is an oil found in many personal care products that contain water. Yet these products containing both ingredients have a uniform texture.

    Definition

  1. Fragrance oil can be 100 percent synthetic or contain up to 80 percent essential oil mixed with a carrier oil (an oil that dilutes essential oils). According to Teach Soap, fragrance oils are predominantly artificial or synthetic.
  2. Solvents

  3. Alcohol is a common solvent used to dissolve fragrane oil into water.

    Alcohol is a common solvent used to dissolve fragrane oil into water.
    Alcohol is the most common solvent used to dissolve fragrance oil into water. Emulsifiers, ingredients that bind oil to water, help dissolve fragrance oils into water and are used in creamy textured products.
  4. Types

  5. Specially denatured alcohol (SD alcohol) is the most common alcohol used to dissolve fragrance oil into water. Arizona Natural Resources lists lecithin, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, cetyl alcohol and polysorbate as common emulsifiers.
  6. Products

  7. Scented lotions use emulsifiers to dissolve fragrance oil into water.

    Scented lotions use emulsifiers to dissolve fragrance oil into water.
    SD alcohol is used to make the cheaper watered-down fragrances of eau de cologne and eau de toilette. Cetyl alcohol, sodium laureth sulfate and polysorbate are used to dissolve fragrance oil into water for creams, lotions, shampoos, conditioners and body washes.
  8. Benefits

  9. Alcohol dissolves fragrance oil into water to create the lesser perfumes known as eau de cologne and eau de toilette.

    Alcohol dissolves fragrance oil into water to create the lesser perfumes known as eau de cologne and eau de toilette.
    Emulsifiers dissolve fragrance oil into water to prevent the two from separating, making it unnecessary to shake up a product like shampoo before each use. Consumers can enjoy cheaper versions of expensive perfumes, eau de cologne and eau de toilette, since alcohol dissolves the fragrance oil into water, creating a less concentrated fragrance.

Thanks for the tips......I have used florachem in the past......They are difficult to deal with only in the sense that you pay them through pay pal and they are closed today and I won't be near a computer all day Monday.
