I totally agree, it's the best. I just ordered 2 gallons and small
bottles for each member of our crews going to philmont and Cumberland
Island. Basic H has thousands of uses from cleaning clothes to bathing
and shaving. We use it at Cumberland Island for mosqueto repellant works
great, however around water mix a non greasy hand lotion with it to keep
it from washing away.
You can drink the stuff and it will not hurt you. I don't suggest
drinking it or getting it in your eyes though, it is a surfactant and
emulsifies (mixes oil and water) it gives you that non lubricated
feeling in your eyes. It is ph balanced and alcohol based (kills germs
like that new nonwater hand cleaning stuff) I could go on and on (just
ask my scouts) I've been using Basic H for over 20 years now (no I'm not
a distributer) I don't go camping without it.
It is also sold in 55 gal. drums as a soil conditioner for farmers. It
works! (releaves surface tension) The water goes into the ground instead
of running off.

P.S. one drop in four ounces of water: better than Windex.
Think of all the window cleaner you could make with a gallon.
