Sodium Hypochlorite: The Unsung Hero of Exterior Cleaning ๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒŸ

Soft Washing sodium hypochlorite

Sodium hypochlorite may not be a household name, but its cleaning power is found in many homes across the UK. ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿก So, what makes this chemical compound a secret weapon in the fight against dirt and grime? ๐Ÿ’ฃ Let's dive deeper and unravel its mystic powers!

Sodium Hypochlorite: A Powerful Ally in the Battle Against Stains ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ

Active in products such as bleach and disinfectants, sodium hypochlorite is a powerful oxidising agent that gives you an upper hand in the battle against tough stains. ๐Ÿ˜ค Yet, it's important to note that sodium hypochlorite may bleach surfaces. Hence, careful application is key to ensuring a victorious clean! ๐ŸฅŠ

Sodium Hypochlorite in Action: The Salient Soft Washing Solution ๐Ÿงฝ๐ŸŒŠ

Ever wonder what is soft washing and how it leaves your walls sparkling clean? The secret sauce is none other than sodium hypochlorite! Soft Washing Solutions such as Softwash Biocide 50% DDAC and Clever Wash Surfactant harness the power of sodium hypochlorite to effectively clean rendered walls with minimal pressure, reducing damage to the exteriors. ๐Ÿ˜Žโœจ

Beyond the Norm: The Versatility of Sodium Hypochlorite ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿชต

While it's traditionally used for cleaning hard surfaces, you can utilise sodium hypochlorite to clean wood too with the appropriate dilution. Believe it or not, it can even be used in a water fed pole softwash nozzle for watering your plants, leaving them greener and healthier! ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŒฑ However, always remember that Soft Washing can kill plants if not used correctly. So, husband your resources wisely! ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ‘

Your Safety Checklist: Handling Sodium Hypochlorite With Care โš ๏ธ๐Ÿ“‹

As rewarding as using sodium hypochlorite can be, it can also be dangerous if mishandled. Alarmingly, some people question, is it illegal to use Sodium Hypochlorite to Softwash?. No, but it can be unsafe without proper knowledge! Hence, taking a Soft Wash Training Course will equip you with the necessary know-how to maintain a safe and healthy environment while getting your exterior spick and span. ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ†

Soft Wash Calculator App

Now you can say I've got an app for that!

ย  ย ย 

Availableย NOW Click Here To Download

Softwashing calculator is an indispensable tool for juggling complicated chemical mixes. It helps reduce wastage and keeps operating costs down by giving accurate proportions

If you are having difficulty getting your head around the maths, trying to work out what percentage of softwash you need, how much chemical, surfactant and water to add, then this is the App for you.



The Soft Wash Calculator App allows you to work out your soft wash recipe by telling you exactly how much chemical, how much water and how much surfactant to add to get the desired soft wash recipe.
It doesn't stop there!.
- It can also remix your leftover softwash to a new stronger or weaker recipe.
- all controls in one place for see at a glance operation
- ease of input via pre-loaded dials. no more calculator style typing
- instantly responds to changes of complex combinations
- works in both Litres and US Gallons
- tested for Protan and Deutan colourblind users
- links to SoftwashingUK website

Take this scenario
You started with a 1% soft wash recipe of 50 gal (or litres) ย for a deck clean and youโ€™re left with 13 gallons.

You get a call from a prospective customer to clean their roof. Past experience tells you a 4% soft wash recipe is needed, but what about your leftover mix at 1%?.

Do you waste time and effort driving back to base to transfer into a standby tank?
You could consider the 13 gal as just water, top up the tank and start again. ย 
But thatโ€™s throwing away the value of the mix and raising your overhead.

Soft Wash Calculator App to the rescue.

You get to the new job and it requires 100 gal / litres.
Switch into remix mode , confirming the 13 gal already in the tank
Move the dials to your new recipe and the app immediately updates the different amounts to add in front of your eyes including the correct amount of extra surfactant.

You now have a 100 gal / litres tank of 4% soft wash recipe ready for your roof clean job!

Not forgetting youโ€™ve saved money too, all without stress and uncertainty . Donโ€™t underestimate what confident calmness has on your customer putting out referrals.

The same applies if you have a 4% recipe left in your tank and you need to dilute it down to 2%. Again the app will tell you how.

Softwashing calculator will also work for any chemical recipe. For instance you can use it for Sodium Hypochlorite, Bleach, Biocide , TFR traffic film remover and degreaser. Even the mathematically-challenged rocket scientist can top up their booster tanks to new fuel mixes after launch delays caused by changing weather conditions.

Using this app you will know exactly what chemical strength to put on any surface giving you the confidence and the knowledge of a professional soft washer and youโ€™ll save money as well.

So if you have little knowledge of how to mix a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.
If you have little knowledge of how to remix a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.
If you want to save money when mixing a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.

This app is also backward compatible to devices running iOS7. We've done this so you can re-purpose an old iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 5 ย for what could be hazardous work environments. Just toss one in your cleaning van's toolkit.

Once you learn the methods and procedures of how to apply the soft wash to the different surfaces that need cleaning youโ€™ll be unstoppable!

The app also has ย a guide to what percentage for what surface. And if you are the lucky owner of a Clever Injector it will remind you the correct setting for the job.
However you should always consider and risk assess what soft wash recipe you need to clean the surface.

** A major iOS code-base change may require a re-purchase. The appiverse at the time will confirm our promise that we won't do so unless the necessity is apparent.
