other Detergent handbooks

  • Easy to follow Detergent Ingredient Handbook
    With our South African recipes, you can follow the 25+ formulae in the Household detergent handbook with ease. Then we have the 2nd file in a Question and Answer type style, with tons of extra info, to prevent the detergent recipes book from becoming complex.
    At the pH strip example below, you can see how simple things are explained.

    Then we can refer you to a few other Detergent handbooks. These books have NOTHING to do with our book, and is an indication of what else you can find.

  • How do I check the pH level
    You can use the pH strips that can be bought from any Pool shop/Spar etc. that looks similar to the pH strip below.The pH refers to the 3rd colour from theright ( Darkest orange).
    The other colours on the strip is not of importance to you.

    pH measurement
    Should you place the pH strip into your product and the orangeturns red it means that the pH is too high.If this is the case you need to add an acid to bring it down to neutral.
    If too low, it will turn light yellow to white and you would need an alkaline to up the pH. Depends on what you are making i.e. Dish Washing Liquid - you can use either Citric Acid to bring it down and Caustic to up the levels.

    To be the same as water, the PH should be between 7.2 and 7.5
