So it appears that you put a surfactant into the mix with hypo ...any suggestions?
ok not expecting that one !
Chuff me look what baby shampoo does
Why would you put that in hypo?
Cos eviestevie told me to
A surfactant in your hypo mix makes it stick to the surface better. So for instance on a roof, it keeps more of the mix in contact with the tiles instead of running straight off. Be careful though of what you add to hypo, you don't want to cause a chemical reaction.
I just used dairy detergent from same place I get hypo
It thickens it up and foams too
I think that anything acidic would react with hypo ?? Anyway did another nice house wash today
Must get back on Windows now
Mixing hypo with an acid would cause a nasty reaction, the likelihood of this happening in an undiluted form probably wouldn't occur in normal use but a toxic chlorine gas cloud shouldn't be on anyone's list of things to try. We store hypo and hydrochloric acid in the same building where I work and we have to follow strict fire precautions and separation guidelines.
Any other 'additives' that people use?

I wasn't suggesting acid as an additive - I said it would react meaning it would make some bad ass ****
