Which Surfactant?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys 

I’ve read so many different opinions on which surfactants are best or safe to use with sodium hypochlorite. Wondering what is everyone’s opinion on Bonnymans Lauryl Dimethylamine Oxide? Considering getting myself some for future use on Render softwashing

Cheers

Yes it’s good stuff we use it and also the clever wash one as well , you only need 300 ml (coke can full) per neat drum of 20 ltr hypo , so it’s cheap as chips

Thanks for the reply. That’s even better than I thought! I’m running my mix out of a 20L Gardiner backpack at the moment so should last! Will be giving it a go in the morning

I use Clever wash from soft wash uk, good stuff and lasts ages, but will need to buy some more this year, open to suggestions..

We use both brands and to be honest there doesn’t appear to be any difference in there use apart from the clever wash has a scent mask in it but it doesn’t do a lot

Do you know if Clever wash has a use by date??

I can’t see one on the bottle nor on the website. It’s nearly 3 years old and I still have some left.  I’ve got some sandstone sills to treat soon, would need some surfactant.

If it has gone past date, im Gonna buy that Metaclear and try that instead. A mate of mine uses it a lot and says it’s fantastic for certain jobs.

Don’t think it has , try thick supermarket bleach on window sills it stays put and doesn’t dry out very cheap alternative
