Sodium percarbonate

Post by onkeltuka » 3 years ago

I bought a box of sodium percarbonate. Could I use it to soak my siphon and hoses? What would be a proper concentration?

hmm.. mine says purity >30%. Maybe I'll use 50g/liter? I've been using it today to clean old labels off of bottles. Some labels come off so that you are left with a sticky layer of glue; percarbonate takes care of that quite nicely.
