    Smile SLES source: Essential Wholesale located in Oregon.

    Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) - 16 fl oz
    The Laureth form is not as harsh as the SLS
    They shipped the next day after I ordered on-line. It was delivered in 3 days.
    A little SLS goes a long way. I used it on some liquid lecithin and it did help to emulsify the globs that were floating on the top of 5 gallons.
    I added 20 ml / 5 gallons of stock solution, mixed, and sealed the plastic gas jug.
    As with all chemicals use with caution.

    Trevor,
    Use the dry lecethin granules.
    The liquid is very difficult to mix even when you use alcohol!

    For those who want to mix large batches of pollen substitute there is a great little mortar mixer available from Kushlan. Available at Home Depot, WW Grainger etc. It takes one 50 lb bag of pollen substitute per batch and turns out 120 lbs of mixture per batch when all is added. Add one quart of SOY oil per batch along with your syrup or sugar. http://kushlanproducts.com/product_i...products_id=32

    hey guys i mixed up a batch last night enough for 5 gal of HBH, so i put in a quart of spermint an lemon grass, and then about 10tsp of lecthin granuals.
    i first put in 6 tsp of the lecthin, but it was gobbing up yet so i put more in it did not gob up now,BUT the problem is it looks like after sitting over night it seperated i think water or the lemon grass came to the top is this normal after i stired it a little it was mixed nice bu will probably seperate. So is the seperation normal i did not add the SLS.

    And much easier to mix with the water just below the boiling point.
    So many weeds.......so little time.
