Have you ever wanted to try powdered chemicals?


Well, I have always wanted to try powder but never have.  I purchased JBS Industries Hydro White Powered Tire & Engine Cleaner (BN 07257).  I purchased it from KR (JBBX5401 $47.57 for 50 pounds).  The label says to add 1/2 to 1 pound per gallon of water then dilute up to 25 to 1.  So I gathered up all my supplies to make some tire cleaner.


I purchased a 5-gallon paint mixer from Finish Factor and some measuring cups from the Dollar Tree.  I forgot to bring my scale to weigh the powder so I decided that 2 cups equaled a pound.


Steps:  1) Add water to bucket,  2) Open powder,  3) Add 10 cups of powder to water, 4) Stir with paint stirrer (Optional: you can also put the top back on to avoid some spilling.), 5) Done, 6) Test


The tire cleaner looks really nice and was very foamy.  But it was not very green.  Maybe I will change the tip in the hydrominder or add more powder next time?  Next time I will also try using a 15 gallon drum instead of a 5 gallon bucket, and then I could stir the cleaner faster.
