Dishwashing Liquid Clouding and Precipitates Appear
Hi Everyone, I made a batch of dishwashing liquid using this formula that I have “guess-worked”
125g Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonate (LABS)
8g EDTA Tetra Chloride
I added 2/3 of my salt to the SLES. After it became whittish in color, i gradually added the water. When the mixture becomes a little bit watery, I added the remaining surfactants and the EDTA (dissolved in water). Lastly, after adding all the water, I added the remaing salt (a thickener), the scent and colorant.
I didn’t add NaOH to my LABS because I suspect that is it already neutral since it is not the sulfonic acid one.
Then, it became cloudy few hours later and precipates (settled at the bottom) appeared after a day.
Please help me. Thank you so much in advance
Also, I wanted to decrease all of my costs as low as possible(but yielding a pretty good product), I am planning to sell these at a low price.
